When I first created The 365 WOD Journey I had no idea it would grow so fast. I definitely wanted it to but didn't expect it to. When I see all of these people tag me each day I literally write to and tag them back with an individualized message of gratitude. I've exhausted my short vocabulary and looked up words we dont hear often enough. The problem, however, is that there comes a time when my vocabulary sounds very canned. At least in my own head, it does.
Back in the day when we wanted to learn a new word we opened a massive brown book called the Encyclopedia Britannica (and by the way, I totally spelled that wrong and googled how to spell it.) Learning new words wasn't always been at the top of my list of fun things to do. Growing up I use to play a TON of video games.
Ok, now that my ADHD has taken over it's time to get back to the words that we dont hear often enough. When telling people how awesome they are and how amazing they are it helps them reassure they're doing the right thing. The problem is that our subconscious mind and as human beings our threshold for kindness increases. Just the same as our level of anger and mean feelings.
The problem, however, is that we don't hang out with people that compliment us on a daily basis.. Of course, they do on a shallow level, for example, “Good morning, Have a great day, You look great today, Have you lost weight? Those all have to do with the way you look.
How about these: Oh, man is it Friday yet? Happy Monday! Have a great Tuesday, Happy Hump Day. Those all have to do with time.
And finally: Can we go home yet? “I am SO excited to hang out with you this weekend.” and That vacation coming up can't come soon enough. All of those have to do with your environment.
Changing the people you hang out with and choosing a different self-talk with words we dont hear often enough will change your entire way of being. It sounds scary with all that change happening, but the scarier thing is going through life knowing that all you're going to experience are shallow people, places and things.
The best part about hanging around people that make you feel better about yourself is that no matter what you say they always lift you up. Using words we dont hear often enough can be fun. Let's put it this way, you're marvelous. After completing each WOD you'll start to see that you're astonishing.
See what I did there? When's the last time you've been called astonishing? Or marvelous?
It's amazing how many people aren't aware of their greatness or abundance. Hang around me long enough and you'll feel unstoppable. Therefore, that's what I do. I'm a backhoe for human emotions. I lift people up every chance I get.
Let's conclude this remarkable piece on words we don't hear often enough. Because it's easier to be negative and be mean to ourselves is the exact reason why I do what I do. Instead of beating yourself up for not losing any weight after working so dang hard. Measure the circumference of your waistline and celebrate how extraordinary you are.
