This week has taken it out of me, but I feel completely energised. Maybe it’s the increased daylight, maybe it’s something else, who knows. The grading left me exhausted and proud, but by the time training came on Tuesday things were looking up. It was hard work, it always is, but it’s always worth the effort in the end. It’s too rewarding to ever give up.
Last night I went to kickboxing for the first time in a while, and while it was very hard it was very much worth seeing through and giving everything. After the class I felt very lifted, if a touch sweaty. I’m off work today and it’s probably a good thing, I’m pretty tired. But at the same time I have the indescribable lift, which means I’ll be running our 2.5 mile route again tonight, looking forward to the hot shower and time to reflect after and the good feelings that come with it.
Things feel ‘right’ again now. I’ve got new challenges, new opportunities and a renewed optimism. I also need a new dobok.
I’m signing out today with a couple of old tracks I re-discovered recently, both of which I love and love to sing along to.
Moby – Dream About Me
Blink 182 – I Miss You
