I've heard runners talk about hitting a wall, this place that is super difficult to push past because your body just wants to quit. I'm not a runner, but I've definitely hit the wall and I can tell you it's made of bricks and broken glass. Every day is the same thing, trying to push through the exhaustion to get something accomplished. It grates.
I keep thinking about fighting dragons and so, in the middle of writing this blog, I google search "manatee vs. dragon" and the results have straight up changed my life.
Maybe my single victory for the day is getting out of bed or cleaning out the fridge. Maybe I make it to the gym and lift 10 pounds, or eat 10 less calories than the day before. My momma has told me a thousand times not to compare myself to other people. I may be a manatee, but I have the heart of a dragon. Maybe the only dragon I've been facing down is myself. Whoa. That was deep. Say it with me people, manadragon. It's on.
