I Can’t Do It Any More!

I Can’t do it any more!

Last night I received the text I have been dreading for a few days. It is not a long one, but the message is so clear. The text require an answer. I don’t want to answer, but I feel obligated to text back. It is a part of the agreement. I know I have to answer, I even know what I should answer but I don’t want to give the answer I feel is necessary. In fact every part of my body screams “PLEASE DON’T!” Every detail of my enormous emotional bank starts to give me reasons how to avoid the question…….

HI Ladies! Fantastic it’s Friday again, hope you have had a good week! So who are coming to “Bootcamp” tomorrow? X

I knew as soon my phone told me I had a message, I knew who it was from. She never misses out to remind us. NEVER! Our instructor is very good in what she do. And unfortunately she is such a nice woman too. Well almost. Not during the hour and half she is in charge of our bodies. She pushes us, she makes us do really painful things. She is not satisfied before we almost faint. And then she asks us to do everything again. She is unbelievable. I hope you understand why I really didn’t want to text back. But I did!

“Yes, count me in!”

I know some people find it very easy to exercise. My husband is one of them. He can look forward to go out for his 10, 12 Km run. I know some people even feel sick and started to feel emotional unbalanced when they don’t exercise. Unfortunately I am not one of them, so when our Instructor text us to know how many will show up, it is absolutely the worst text in the week. I am serious. I really don’t want to, but does that mean I don’t need to? NO, of course not!

We all have areas in our lives that we need to work on a bit more. Some might struggle in their finances. They know they need to pay bills, they know they need to cut down on shopping, they don’t want to, but the way to a prosperous life is to be wise. First don’t shop when you don’t have money. Set up a budget for next month, week and even next day. STICK TO IT. Nothing revolutionary. Will it affect you finances, YES. Will it require work and commitment, YES! Will it be easy to put back a really nice dress, jacket or bag…. But it is on sale….. NO it will not be easy. Will it be easier as times goes by? Maybe for some of us, but for many, NO! but is it still the right thing to do? YES!

Who do you need with you during those times, your mom or your dear friend who say “ It is pretty, you really deserves it” or someone telling you firmly and with a clear voice “Put it back!…. and the shoes you have in your other hand.”

We need people around telling us what we need to hear, not necessary what we want to hear. The same when it comes with your relationship and marriage. We need people to tell us, like my Boot-camp instructor. Don’t give up, come on! You can do it!!!! Don’t listen to your body, because it is ready to give up. But you are stronger than this, COME ON. And this part I don’t really like, in fact I almost hate it, but when you think you almost faint, she say the most dreadful thing. That is fantastic, give me ten more. It is really amazing, but when my body is ready to quit, her encouragements lifts us all. And we give her ten more….

God has given you everything you need to fight for complete victory! So whatever you need to remember today I know you can do ten more, because I can! God bless you on your journey to grow and flourish!

“By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence” 1 Peter 1:3
