Often times, just thinking back to a little lover two years ago when I was still a fairly sedentary Standard American Diet consumer having become damn near bed ridden, compared to my mini-trampoline bouncing self and my hula hooping 50 year old self, weighing in 110lbs lighter and having shed much suffering, is enough to get the momentum going.
But I, too, benefit from and enjoy a boost in my spirits from recalling wise words to help me stay on track.
"Nothing tastes as good as feeling good and healthy feels." Not sure who said it, but they were spot on and it helps keep me focused on the whole food plant-based scene.
"The flow is in the know. Keep the flow on the go, or you'll be the first to know." - I say that mainly in reference to the breath, along with the lymph system and the fascia, two things I had no idea even existed until I decided to learn more about all the systems that make up this being known as me, rather than taking the professionals' word for everything. I remain fascinated.
"A.F.G.O." - Another F'n Growth Opportunity - is something I say often in response to hurdles of all kind that seem giant in the moment
Music is a great motivator, too. If I'm feeling like I want to be still, the right jam can get my groove going like no other, and the momentum just keeps building from there. Especially things like James Brown "Mind Power" and "Get On the Good Foot", or Wookiefoot, "Junk Food" and "Don't Should On Me". One of the many reasons I had to get my home set up to be exercise friendly so I could strike whenever the iron gets hot.
"Strange times are these in which we live when old and young are taught falsehoods in school. And the person that dares to tell the truth is called at once a lunatic and a fool." ~Plato
