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
