Day 14: When you miss your target.

Begin again. . .

I missed my targeted goal yesterday.  One of my goals was to walk 10,000 steps each day for 30 days.  Other than walking around the house, I really didn’t walk anywhere.  I didn’t even put the pedometer on.  I had every intention of walking the 10,000 steps, however, a sinus infection  and slight fever ruled the day.   I did feel disappointed at myself and then I reminded myself that when I am deterred, derailed, prevented from achieving a goal, I don’t give up.  I turn within myself and learn the lessons to be learned.  My immune system was telling me, it is time to slow down, rest and take care of myself.  I have had asthma, it does not have me.  I have to pay attention to early signs of respiratory problems, or else, I can end up in the emergency room.  Who can afford to end up in the emergency room?  Not I.  When I am able to, I will pick up the pieces and move forward.

I mention this because I know there are readers out there in virtual space who have missed their target goal either in this challenge or another aspect of their life; following through on a resolution, a goal, a dream.    Rather than scrapping the whole 30-day challenge and beating myself up about missing my target goal, today, I begin again

    Kari, absolutely love the ‘Return to Innocense’. This 30 day Challenge seems to have become an uphill battle for me which, also seems to be the story of my life! Since I do suffer from an autoimmune disease where I must be diligent in listening to my body and heeding the warning signs, it does not sway me from my ultimate goal. When life rolls those lemons in my path, I simply make Lemonade, sip, enjoy, and move on. I have learned to create my own calm during a storm instead of waiting for it to pass.

      Thanks for commenting and taking the 30-Day Challenge. . “Being diligent and listening to our bodies” is key to staying healthy. I have had asthma for 5 years and despite the fact that I think I am invincible, I do have to pay attention to signs and symptoms, otherwise, I can end up in the emergency room.
      I, too, believe that saying about when the world hands us lemons and turning lemons into lemonade.
      I wish you and all the readers of Peace of Mind Space peace, love and wellness.
