My Inspiration


I'm feeling pretty good today. The Olympics are here and I'm really excited. I'm sort of a weirdo when it comes to watching athletes. I really do get inspired to work harder and do better. My current inspiration to keep pushing myself is Michael Phelps. I don't work myself half as hard as he does. He pushes his body to the limit and defies all the odds to achieve his goals. If he can do it, why can't I? And my goal isn't a gold medal lol. He also makes me want to become a better swimmer. I've really developed a love for the sport this summer. It's way more fun than running :) I've set a lot of goals for myself lately. Not only am I trying to get into great shape, but I have other aspects of my life that I am trying to improve as well. The road hasn't been easy. And I know it wont get any easier because once I accomplish something, I'm just going to move on to the next thing I want to improve. But so far, it's been so worth it. For the first time in a really long time, I'm enjoying working hard. I have much more self-confidence (which I really need). I feel more accomplished and happier with who I am becoming. It's a great feeling. So I encourage you to do the same. And what better time to get inspired than to watch the athletes who have worked their whole lives to accomplish something. I LOVE THIS TIME!! :)
