I’m almost at a loss for something to post today. I’m trying to get back into the swing of things (and am almost caught up now). I went to work out with my new trainer today—it was hard, but satisfying.
He had me do:
box step-ups (with knee up)
beat the tractor tire with a baseball bat
push-ups (all the way down, 3/4 way up)
medicine ball arm exercises
It’s all stuff I could do on my own, but I definitely work harder when he’s pushing me! It reminds me, too, that I love working out with someone else (even though my trainer doesn’t work out with me). There’s just something about being “in it together” that is motivating to me.
I also did my corporate wellness coaching today, and for some reason I ended up talking to about 10 people more than I usually do in one day. It was great to have check-ins with so many people (40!).
Two people thanked me for all the help I’ve given them, and they told me how much of an impact my assistance has had on them. It made me feel really good. Of course, I was probably a little awkward accepting the praise, but I just thanked them and reinforced that although I assisted, they have done all the work!
It made me start to think about how often we thank people for things that matter. Of course it’s polite to tack a “thank you” onto many sentences. But, it can be very meaningful to let someone know how and why you appreciate them. We all get boosted by feeling that we make a difference in someone’s life (and personally, it reinforces my motivation to keep doing what I’m doing).
I want to make a point of telling people thank you for things they’ve done for me that have impacted my life. So I must go and make my list!
Hopefully tomorrow I’ll be back on top of things and post something useful!
I’m excited to try out a new wine bar in Geneva with the other Lisa B tomorrow, and I also have some not so exciting plans to catch up on work and clean my house!
Do you tell people thank you when they’ve had a positive impact on your life?
Has someone thanked you for something meaningful in their lives?
