Salvere Blog: What If We Thought of …

May 8, 2019
life is like a book
… Our lives like we do books. Think about it – While reading a book, each page brings an opportunity to learn something new, the possibility for an adventure, to meet someone different, to see more of the world. Each page builds on the story, adds something to the details. Pages sometimes focus on smaller details and sometimes bring something bigger. When I read a book, I love to feel the excitement of what’s next and look forward to the journey.
Working with people on their very personal fitness journey for many years, it seems, with certain things (especially moving our bodies) we forget about the excitement of learning something new and instead avoid it or become frustrated.
We forget about the benefits of practice and instead feel like we need to be an immediate expert.
We forget that when things seem to be going askew, go to the basics and spend some time focusing on those instead feel like we failed because we “went backwards”.
We forget to find ways to enjoy the journey, instead we rush to the finish line.
How can we find that excitement in learning something new, that joy in building through step by step progress and appreciate the importance of the basics?
