Yesterday, my rest day, I joined a gym. Today, after morning training, I went to the gym and completed a circuit of leg and upper body exercises.
I woke up today excited to continue training. Yes, I understand the rest day is necessary for physical recovery but the rest day is also a fine opportunity to stretch perspective.
Quote I’m Thinking about Today:
“Be content with the smallest step forward.” ~ Marcus Aurelius
“He’s a writer again. His words walk a tightrope of transparency and vulnerability while attempting to maintain a masculine balance. He writes to entertain. He writes to discover truth. He writes to feel strong. He writes to fill the hole in his brain with imagination instead of hopelessness and resentment. He writes secrets he can’t tell his wife. He writes to make his father proud. He writes in case he dies young. He writes so his voice may one day comfort his children when they’re older and far from home. He writes for Ms. Baker/ Mrs. Cleary. For Fire Hydrant. For himself. Because twenty four years ago he gave up on a dream. He let an opinion dry his pen, quiet his voice. When he was a boy he let the critic win.”
