Morning Jog


The alarm clock goes off as I lay there in my unconscious wake, I am about to press the snooze button when I remember that I have no time for that. There is no time to revert back to old habits that have not worked for me, that have always given me the same results. I have to maintain new changes to acquire a new outcome and maybe what I am about to start will not change that much in my life, but I believe it will be step one into allowing for new changes.

I throw the covers off me and stumble off towards the bathroom. Five minutes later I am already in my black shorts and my worn out white t-shirt. I walk towards the bed with socks and sneakers in hand. I place myself on the bed as I put on my socks and then shove my feet into the most comfortable sneakers I have ever owned.

I am wide awake now and ready to take a new step into my new life, ready for a healthier life style and an earlier start to my every day.

It is 6:45am and I am standing inside my elevator stretching out my limbs, warming up my body for the upcoming strenuous walk. The elevator doors open as I step out into a florescent lit garage; a few steps later I am facing a large metal door that will lead me into the outside world. I push it open and glare into the strikingly bright sunlight making me squint my eyes to fend them from the first encounter with the fresh outdoors.

A smile over takes my whole body as my legs starts to move rapidly on the cobbled walkway. On my right are rows of coffee shops and on the left side an expanse of blue water that connects with the blue of the sky. As I start my rapid walking I feel like I belong to something, to a people that have chosen to do the same morning exercise. There are a few others, some jogging, some walking, some running but all are moving towards a healthier morning. It feels so good, it feels so right, I feel alive.

Needless to say, my mornings have become more meaningful and my energy level has risen to levels I had not had since the age of 25. I move around the office with more energy, my smile lasts longer than just the first two hours and I feel like I can do anything that I put my mind to.

A simple change has given me so much and I wonder what may happen when I start to incorporate other new things into my life. My mornings used to be sacred, they were made for sleep and the more snoozing I did the happier I got, if only I had known all along that to wake up half an hour earlier, to ignore the urge to snooze, to jump out of bed and immerse my energy in a morning jog, I would feel this much better. One new change gave me a new belief in myself, it incorporated a new fact; whatever I wanted to do in my life was possible I just had to actually do it to see and feel the new results.

Make a small change in your life, see the results and it will be easier to keep incorporating new things in your life on a daily basis. It is never too late and we are never too old to modify out life or who we are.
