After running 6 laps, I sat on the spectators seat to enjoy the view. The rainbow decided to show up for a brief moment before the dark clouds swoop over, covering the setting sun’s rays.
If I could train or work out in a place like this every day, I’d be the happiest most Zen person in the world.
My heart belongs to this town and another place I’ve never been to.

The truth is if you don’t do it then you don’t really like it.
Some people live in a fantasy world where if they like something it’ll miraculously come to them.
If you want to be a writer but you don’t write every day, guess what? You won’t be a good writer.
If you want to be good at an instrument but you don’t practice every day? You won’t be good at it.
Everyone wants the happy ever after ending, fame and what not but none of them wants to go through the boring and gruelling process.
But the question here is why? Why don’t we just drop everything and do what we like?
Reason number one. Life. By that I mean, priorities. Sometimes, the things we like doesn’t fit with all the bullshit we’re going through right now. So we put it off. Now, I’m not saying this is okay. I’m a firm believer in taking the chance while it’s in front of you. But, it’s a scary leap and most people just don’t have the courage to take that leap.
Which leads me to reason number two. Fear of the unknown.
“What if I can’t do it? What if I suck? What if this isn’t worth it? What if I lose everything?” Sounds familiar?
We’re all scared of going out of our comfort zones. Anxiety can be hell. It can tear you apart and scar you for life. But succumbing to anxiety itself is not worth it. How can we know if we’re truly capable if we never tried? (Hey, I just answered the second question again!)
There you have it. These fears only hold us back no matter how you look at it. So, go have fun. Take your time and do that thing you like. Know that it’s not too late. Your future self would thank you.
Everytime I read or say that word, I’ll definitely think of that one Spongebob episode where he was picked as the Karate master but it turned out that he was scammed. Yep.
Day 2 of Hell Week with Ramit Sethi and Mark Divine focuses on breathing and taking control of your anxiety.
Proper breathing can change a lot in your day. It can make you feel relaxed, change your mood thus changing your attitide towards other people.
Anyone who meditates knows this feeling of free and lightness.
Day 2 seemed pretty chilled out. If this were a real Hell Week (in a military or a sport bootcamp) I’d be crying my eyes out. I got really sore after day one, it was absolutely terrible.
Happy Friday, everyone.
Finally got the time to do the Hell Week with Ramit Sethi and Mark Divine.
First Day. Do 1000 push ups or 21-minute plank. I chose the latter.
I think I almost died in the first minute. But I made it to the end. Not too shabby for a person who doesn’t work out on a regular basis.
I’m going to take a long break doing nothing now…
