I just found my life theme song: “I’m in a hurry and don’t know why”. 😂 Have you all heard this song? It is old, by speaks to the insane speed at which we live our lives! #soundon
I know I’m not alone in being drawn into the “rat race”. It takes intentionally placing rhythms in our lives to slow down and be present in the activity we are doing or the people we are with. #remindingmyself
In other news, I am becoming more aware of how the movement of the snatch is supposed to feel. I love how God teaches me about life through physical activity. The way my natural tendencies are in movement are my natural tendencies in life. The song I mentioned earlier is about rushing and not knowing why. Without the training from my coaches and mentors the hurriedness would be more apparent then it already is. I have to vigilantly be aware of that tendency to rush & remind myself to relax and focus on doing the small things well. Don’t worry about the big things; focus on excellence in the small things.
Recently one of my coaches asked me about what I was doing to address my plethora of mobility/activation awareness issues. I responded, I’m doing stuff at least 4 times a week to address it. Then he asked if I was being consistent and I was like “I think I am”.
Afterwards, I realized I have only been focusing on one area, my T spine. I got so focused on that one area I literally stopped mobilizing and stretching everything else. As I processed this, it blew my mind, because I realized I had not been doing the small things well. When we are not faithful with the small we have not earned the right to be responsible with the greater responsibility of heavier weight. Or to translate it into life, if we are not intentional with doing the small things God has given us we can not be trusted with the weight of stepping into our life call. 🤯 #mindblown Let’s be intentional about doing the small things well! #makeyourbed #doyourdishes #beintentionalaboutthesmallthings
