Greetings! It's September 2! I didn't even post a small anything in August. Totally let the month get away for me. The truth is I've been finding it hard to find my motivation in general lately. So when you feel like that, you're not really up to writing motivational blog posts to encourage other people. So this post is going to be completely real. This is me. Where I'm at. Raw.  School started Monday. The stress of school starting and being back to work completely consumed me. And I allowed it.  

Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him. 
Psalm 62:1

Exhaustion cycle: get up, get ready for work, work all day, no breaks, just go, go, go. Come home... and I'm done. It's all I can do to just get through the night.  Cooking? Meal prep? Working out? What's that? I'm just trying to survive.  That's it.  Wake up, exhausted before I even start the day. Repeat. 

Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.  Take my yolk upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
Matthew 11:28-29

I really don't like feeling this way.  I HATE feeling like my circumstances are dictating my path.  The truth is, I know what I need to do. I just need to get myself to stop the cycle. I need to move. Moving my body, working out, lifting weights, sweating! These things make me feel better, so why do I go home and crash on the couch and do nothing? All that does is make me more tired!

Fortunately it's a long weekend and I've already gotten off to a good start. Had an awesome workout yesterday and did a 5K fun run last night.  
It was a fun run, so I didn't have any goal, but to have fun. And I did. 

Was up early today and already out the door to Costco first thing. Costco is my favorite place. ❤️ 

Heading to the gym shortly.  Have to pick my son up from work, so am throwing this up here now.  Tonight we are going to see Fluffy (Gabriel Iglesias) and I'm really looking forward to this.

Finally feel like I'm getting my groove back.  
Did you even know there is a song about that???  It's pretty awesome!

So when you're in a slump. When you feel like everything is running you instead of you running everything else. Don't be so hard on yourself. 
Feeling good!  Got my groove back!
Remember, each day is a new beginning. 

New Day by Alicia Keys
There's a feeling that I got that I can't give up.  Feeling in my heart that I can't get over.  I know it's coming.  Let the sun come up.  Tell me, do you feel the same?
