Where Did It Go ??

MOTIVATION.....Where did it go?  Is it hiding under the bed next to your running shoes?

Why is it that I continue to pay my gym membership and yet never, ever go?  Why is it that I glance up at the yoga room every single time I drive by and wish, and wonder?  Why is it that every time I look at my gym clothes in the drawer and get sad?  Every time I hear this commercial, I wonder.

QUESTION:  What is the one thing that you wish you had in your life that you don't currently have?  What is missing?

I think the greatest thing I'm missing right now is an engaging challenge. Something with an end goal in mind, or better yet, something where discovering the end goal is part of the work.

Perhaps the greatest enemy of motivation is experience -- it's hard to be motivated when past experience suggests the goal is unattainable, or the effort isn't rewarding, or the reward isn't as concrete as the required effort.

A flat stomach.
I'd be happy with that.

I'm missing a satisfying career, a husband, some nice abs, motivation, and about one million dollars. LMAO! Other than this, I'm fine!
