The One Phrase You Should Quit Using Immediately
Updated: Mar 25, 2019
"I fell off the wagon."
This week I went skiing with my family. It was an amazing vacation. But you know what is oftentimes associated with vacations?
"Falling off the wagon."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀.
This quote from my book-in-progress, "Body War," is here to remind you of this simple fact: you're not dead.
The wagon in this scenario? It's actually just life. Our entire health journey will stretch out for the entirety of our lives. There is no magical, mystical land of completion. It's simply putting in the work and striving to become a healthier, better version of ourselves all the while.
Press on, sweet friends. Don't talk down to yourself and beat yourself up for any perceived shortcomings. Offer yourself grace, and keep moving forward. There's no wagon. There's just life. And during this life you get to pursue health in your mind, in your heart, in your spirit, and in your body. It's a never-ending, beautiful journey.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Remember that you are capable enough, you are strong enough, and you are worthy enough. Let's choose freedom and embrace it unapologetically. And also, don't forget, you can only fall off the wagon if you're dead. And you're not dead.
Keep it real, friends,
