Time away from something often allows us to appreciate it more. I have been away from the gym for a couple of weeks. On some days I was out of town, on others I had family commitments, and then there were those days that I just didn't feel like going.
Well, today I learned that I need to make time for myself to work out. Whether it's for 30 minutes or 2 hours, it's important to do those activities that we truly enjoy, and I rediscovered that today. I was at the gym for almost two hours. I alternated between cardio and super sets, and I enjoyed some conversations in between what I was doing.
Today, I realized how much I missed being at the gym, and I'm glad to be back. I do appreciate it a lot more, but I won't take that much time away from it again.
Lesson learned: Time away allows us to be more appreciative.
What is something you've been away from that you've missed?
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
