I love Sheryl Crow. Always have. Always will. Not only is she an amazing musician, but she’s also a brilliant lyricist. When you listen to her songs (and I mean really listen), everyone can identify with the lyrics. Especially applicable to myself at the moment is the following…..
“Everybody gets high, everybody gets low,
These are the days when anything goes
Everyday is a winding road
I get a little bit closer
Everyday is a faded sign
I get a little bit closer to feeling fine”
– Every Day is a Winding Road, Sheryl Crow
Those words are very meaningful to me, especially at this point in my life. People go through good times and bad times, good weeks and bad weeks even. At the moment, I’m going through a bad week. Not emotionally, but mentally and physically. As you’ve all read, I’m really struggling with shin splints at the moment, so I’ve had to take it easy on the exercising front. However, I’m really struggling with motivation to get my big behind back into the gym. I’m making up excuses left, right and centre. It’s actually becoming ridiculous! Any motivational tips/phrases??
Well, I know I’ll snap out of this soon and get back into the swing of things. Sometimes I just wish that it wouldn’t take me so long. I can and I will. This is not a sprint, it’s a marathon….(cheesy metaphor, I know! Heheheeee)
Well, for your listening pleasure, here is the YouTube video of the Song of the Day….
I think what I’m trying to say is that as long as you keep your end goal in sight, know what you want or where you want to get to you’re doing fine. Every day is a step in the right direction. It might not always be a giant step, but it’ll get you there in the end.
Every day you get a little bit closer to feeling fine….. 🙂
