Get Back Up

This past weekend, Boston and I got a group of people together and filmed a commercial for Chevrolet to inspire Perseverance.

The commercial is about a girl who despite bad weather or taking fall after fall during her climb, pushes through her training and gets to the top of an epic cliff, only to realize that though she conquered this mountain she has many more yet to climb!

Metaphor for life, right?  

Well, I fell down this week.  Not physically (minus the commercial), but I just felt life kickin' my trash.

I didn't listen to my body and respect that it was exhausted.  I fell off of my eating plan AND work out regimen and then on top of that, didn't meet my work goals for the week.  So I crashed and then I beat myself up for crashing.  Productive.

And, of course, after the storm clouds clear and all is well, I look back and I wonder why was I freaking out?

If we're performing life at 100%, 100% of the time, then there are no peaks, it's just big fat plateau. And that's no fun.

So what if life kicked my trash this week.  Just gotta get back up.
