December 17. Lesson Learned.
What was the best thing you learned about yourself this past year? And how will you apply that lesson going forward? (Author: Tara Weaver)
The best thing I learned about myself this year is that I can overcome obstacles that may seem difficult or impossible to pass. I am capable of much more than I used to think I was. We as humans have incredible physical and mental strength to do so much in our lives.
I have learned this through my fitness and health journey. I never ever thought that I could be a runner, yet I took on the Couch to 5k challenge and ended up being a runner. I then hurt myself and discovered that I was not willing to give up on my new found love for fitness. Two years ago, I would not have been able to bounce back that easily, nor was I very confident in myself. I continue to push myself because I’ve learned that nothing is impossible if you dream it and want it bad enough.
Going forward, I’m already setting goals for myself for next year and beyond. Those goals include things that are my hopes and dreams for the future in fitness, writing, photography and in love. Nothing can stop me from achieving what I want in life anymore.
