I've been trying to simplify my outlook on life by asking, "What's my one next step?" Rather than getting overwhelmed by everything I want to accomplish, or everything that makes me feel so deeply, by asking this question it takes down the stress level a bit, and gives me a way to process something I can actually, physically do, instead of merely thinking of the many, many things to do.
This morning I took another step on the road to a healthier, thinner me. I actually woke up with the alarm clock, put on my sneakers, and went for a run. Voluntarily. For someone who loathes running, this some good progress. It wasn't a fast run, and it certainly wasn't a long run. But I DID IT, and that's what matters.
