My first time

(read the whole thing)

I remember when it happened, it was on my water bed a long time ago; however, I do not recall the feeling of my satisfaction, but I remember how the person who carried me at that moment felt, but I’m not going to count that as my first time. My first time was unforgettable, I was fully aware of what I was about to do. I did hesitate and I was nervous, but the delectable freshness that brushed on my lips convinced me to open up, and welcome the creamy flavour. I felt like I switched onto a slow motion mode, that allowed me to enjoy my long awaited reward. I needed to hold on to something, in order to help me get through it all. It was a bucket of emotions twirling at the centre of my palate and making its way down my soul. Not to mention the minty cold air that blended with the scenery, and the small chunks of chocolate that were shared in perfect harmony. Oh, how much I loved the first time I had mint chocolate chip ice cream.

What did you think I was talking about?

Living life

I think a lot of us underestimate, the importance of welcoming a different day. Living life to the fullest, doesn’t mean squeezing random activities in your daily life. It means, finding something (or someone) you love and discovering a different quality of life. Even if it means you do just one thing in a day. As long as you feel you can gain a better perspective, and appreciation for your life, it is worth it.

It’s okay to be a bit impulsive, providing it is not going to damage you or others. For example, if you’ve always wanted to take photographs, why not start today? You don’t have to limit your passions if you don’t have the means. If you have a cell phone, use the camera, and capture what you want. Everything you do at this point, will lead to something better, or different.

Don’t feel discouraged if you discover a new path, pursue it in any way you can, and you won’t regret it. It is the little steps that you take, that will add up and lead you to a new journey.

Regret doesn’t happen because of failure, it happens because you didn’t try.

Your fountain of youth

It happens instantly, when your agonizing muscles will not give in to your vigorous routine. You drop the towel, grab a drink, stand still or sit down. That’s when you are quick to disparage your efforts toward your healthy goal.

It’s easy to give in when you just finished abdominal crunches, and pose on the floor like you just broke all the bones in your body (because, in your mind, a simple crunch will ruin your life). So, after 10 crunches, you convince yourself you just burned away 10 pounds, and therefore, will not need to work out for the next week. I get it, your muscles are sore, your mind is tired, your heart is pounding.

Then, the next day, you choose to give it another try, but this time you push it a bit. You actually complete one of those seven-minute workouts. Sure, you want to rip your hair and glue it back together (to give yourself more stress and something to rant about), but then realize, why is a seven-minute workout feel so damaging? You must be really out of shape. And you are, but so is your spirit.

Nobody said it was going to be easy, but you can mentally make it so. Seven minutes a day is not as bad as it may sound. After the first workouts, it will feel like someone punched you with a mace, but the next day, it will feel rewarding. After a week, you will do things you were not able to do before. Your mind will conquer, and you will believe it could be possible after all.

Take it at your own pace, because only you and your body will react positively to what it feels right. Change it up a bit, go for a walk, increase the challenge each day. it really does work. Find something that inspires you to strive for your goals. Make your goals realistic and you will not despair. Treat yourself, so you have something to look forward to.

It is just like when you write, you won’t quit, because it is your passion. So, do not underestimate a good workout, give it a chance to become your passion. Don’t stop moving. You’ll find your own fountain of youth.
