I like to change things up a bit.  I’m a planner so I’m sure you can imagine that means I plan my days, plan my workouts, and ultimately plan my blog posts.  But in going with the flow (right Brittany?) and following where my heart is leading me today, I’m changing things up a bit.


You see as part of my entry to the Commitment Day run, I also received a pretty neat journal/planner/tracker/whatever you want it to be book!  For me, I’ve decided to use it to plan my workouts and track my training for the year, especially with some pretty hefty goals like my first 1/2 marathon!


Anyway, I was flipping through the book the other day when I ran across this quote:

These words speak to me.  Seriously, they speak to me.  They speak to the year I’m having; they speak to the year I want to have; they speak to every effort I’m making to improve my health, life and overall well being; they speak to every ounce of my soul.  Did you know words could do that?  They can.


There are many challenges I could just accept: my job, my living situation, my health, but instead I’m choosing to do something about them, whether all of my actions are visible to the outside world on a daily basis.  I’m choosing to act on the things in my life that aren’t serving me; I’m choosing to take the necessary steps to move in the right direction; I’m choosing to remind myself that some things are temporary so not to get so bogged down on the bad days; I’m choosing to make moves and make things happen.


I’m no bystander.  I’m a planner.  So while I may be going with the flow, I’m still planning, I’m still working, I’m still making things happen.  I can feel things changing and shifting; I can feel that my hard work will pay off sooner rather than later.  Things are happening people, things are happening.


What will you choose today?

    I was ‘stuck’ in a VERY deep rut a few months ago, and as soon as I started to make plans, or even take baby steps towards a change, I felt lifted, and just better in general. Moving forward means making plans, making changes, and to me, moving forward is what keeps me happy.

    The hardest part is making the plans and then having to wait for other circumstances to align so you can follow through…

    I love the line “I’m no bystander. I’m a planner.” It is such a good way to live your life and keep as a constant reminder when making choices. We are in charge of our lives, decisions, and all that goes with it. By planning, even a little bit, we can be prepared for *almost* anything thrown our way. Love the positive attitude!
