A friend gave me this quote awhile back that said, “I have so far to go.” But a true friend says, “But look how far you’ve come.” I like it because it’s very easy in this quick, time-crunched fanatical life nowadays to be focused on what’s in front of us. What are you pursuing, where your journey is heading. After all, you have to know where you want to go in order to get there, right?! We even encourage that focus as coaches when we help you narrow down and define goals. Our Best Year Yet Bash coming up on January 12 is all about enjoying each other, celebrating our accomplishments and moving forward this year.
But it’s oh so important to stop, breathe, and take a moment to look back and remember how far you’ve come already. Whether you’ve been doing CrossFit for six days or 6 months or 6 years, you’ve come so far. At the beginning, it’s an accomplishment just to make the choice to walk in the door, to keep coming back when your body is screaming sore, when your ego gets humbled daily, when you struggle through movements or workouts. But isn’t it grand when you find that movement that you enjoy, that you excel at, when you are in the groove? Don’t forget about all those PR’s you’ve had this year, whether 2# or 10# or 40#. Every little step through the door and workout finished is key toward that continued progress.
Maybe you’ve had a setback or two. Maybe you had a baby, sustained an injury, or had life get you down. But if you keep making the choice to show up and take care of yourself and your fitness–then celebrate it! Life will always throw shit at you, don’t worry about being perfect, just embrace being the best example of being human you can be. (I think there’s a quote like that but can’t find it for the life of me right now).
So here comes 2012 to a close. Take a moment to reflect on what you’ve done before worrying about where you’re going. Celebrate your 2012 accomplishments and let’s hear about them!
