Will to Rebuild

I had my first gym session since I got Covid in December on Monday.

Which means I have to rebuild muscles. I was not doing much exercise which isn’t like me at all. I at the least do home workouts when I can’t make the gym. But the last couple months I just chilled.

What’s interesting is that I’m not upset that I have to rebuild. I’m fully aware that it’s going to take time and intention to get back to where I was. It’s like this, since I’ve worked out most of my life, I know it’s a lifestyle and not a race. I don’t know a lot about fitness but I do know daily habits pay off because I’ve experienced it.

I always compare my gym life to my writing life because both of them are all about daily habits and having the right mindset. I think the same thing is going to happen with being a writer. I’m fully aware that it’s going to take time and intention to finish my novels. I really wanna be finished with my novel. I really wanna just take myself on a road trip and bang it out. But past experiences have taught me that writing and living my daily life, (momming, wife-ing, side hustles, hanging out with friends and family) go hand in hand. Not just for writers, but for all artists. So I’m just carving away at it daily with a focused mind, a steady pace, and the will to finish.

I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
