Bad Days Happen
Do you have that negative voice inside your head telling you just to hang up the lifting shoes? Maybe it's asking you "why bother getting up on those rings, you're just going to fail anyways?"
Maybe it has nothing to do with CrossFit or lifting. Maybe that voice is telling you that your mom-skills suck or that you have failed as a friend or it's telling you that you are terrible at making the bed. Whatever it is, big or small, that voice in your head can be mean.
That voice can be loud.
That voice can be defeating.
That voice can also be a huge liar.
One bad day in the gym, or an off day with the kids does not make you suck at life. It makes you human. Everyone has those days. The danger comes when we let those voices take over, murdering our self confidence.
DON'T LET IT.
You are that voice and you have the power to make it shut the hell up. The best way to do that is to just keep on keeping on. If you are frustrated, step back take a deep breath and try again. Never stop giving it your best shot and know that some days your best is better than on other days.
There is no way you can be mediocre if you are trying.
Bad days happen.
Brush yourself off, put on a smile. If you don't feel like smiling, do it anyways! Before you know it, your smile becomes the real thing. Your happiness returns. Your joy floods back in.
Take your joy back. It's yours and you deserve it.
