When you are trying to make a change you get out what you put in. Hard work is required. I can only reach my goals if I put in the work to achieve them. If I want this blog to be successful I need to put in the work. I am not going to get anywhere if I don’t take the steps to get there.
Hard work is also necessary to work on your mental health. If I want to get to a healthy place mentally I need to put in the work. I need to change my thought patterns and behaviors or I will never get to where I want to be. Recently I have been very stressed and depressed so I am hoping to work on the thought patterns that I have and change my thoughts. I also plan on going back to therapy. It’s hard to bear all of your deepest darkest feelings to someone you don’t know, but I know that hard work is necessary to see any sort of improvement.
Another aspect of my life that I am working on trying to make changes is fitness and nutrition. It is important to stick to healthy eating decisions and workouts to reach your fitness goals. You won’t see a change from eating one salad or doing one workout, just like you won’t get fat from skipping one workout or eating one cookie. Our actions slowly build up and add on til one day when we start to see the results.
Whatever you have been struggling with I encourage you to keep pushing and as long as you put in the work I promise you will see the change!
