There’s always a reason to show up in a way that doesn’t reflect our best self. The weather, your mood, the current situation, the economy, that pain in your knee – take your pick. And, these extraneous factors seem to grow in importance the more attention we pay to them.
But, they are just manifestations of the resistance. They’ll stick around till we decide we’re done with the excuses.
No matter the weather, the situation or the mood, we can choose to show up to be positive, thoughtful, and learning focused if that’s how we want to show up. It is our call and deciding to relinquish that call is our call too.
It is a bit of work – especially on days when said conditions are not ideal. But, it is work worth doing.
