I was complaining to my admin friends that I felt under accomplished today. I had a busy clinic day- which is great for a growing business- but all of my other To Do items had fallen by the way side, including writing this blog and my run.
My good friend Melanie Goble, aka the angel admin, said and I quote "Carrie, get your ass in gear and start running!!!!"
If you know Melanie, this is shocking. She does not cuss. Cussing is really more David and my department. So, these words were extra motivating.
I could have easily slacked here, but now I was also going to be letting Melanie down, and I never want to let Melanie down. So I am proud to say my run is accomplished AND bonus, I wrote a blog article today. And now I have extra energy from my run to get some other stuff done.
So my friends, when you feel like you are failing on your goals or your self care- reach out. Ask your friends to help keep you accountable. If you can't find a person to work out with in person, share your goals with some friends and help motivate each other. You don't have to do this alone!
