864 STRONG – Gunny’s Blog / Wednesday 01.04.2023 / Happy 2023!

864 STRONG – You Matter! The people around you today matter. 2023 is Here!

No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
-Micah 6:8

“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.”
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

The happiest people don’t have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything. Thankful. Grateful. Blessed.

Drama does not just walk into your life. Either YOU create it, invite it, or associate with it. Don’t complain about it if you are the one driving the drama bus.

The better you feel about yourself, the less you feel the need to show off. Be yourself. Be Happy.

Social Media tip of the day:  It takes discipline not to let social media steal your time, your privacy and your joy.
What do you benefit from exposing your entire life to random people? Don’t be a narcissist. Have pride in yourself but keep your personal life personal.
Privacy is dead, and social media holds the smoking gun.  Have the wisdom to show restraint. –Proverbs 23:4

Your GOAT in CrossFit is a movement that you are not so good at, and that is putting it politely. It could be anything; barbell movement, gymnastics movement, body weight movement, kettlebell movement, or simply flexibility and/or mobility. The only way to attack your goat is to work on it!

Definition of Challenge: Demanding, testing one’s determination, willpower, abilities, skills and resources. A call to fight, as a battle.

Entitlement is a delusion built on self-centeredness and laziness. Nobody ever said that life was fair. Deal with it! Don’t compare your life to other peoples life. Live your own. Keep Calm and Mind Your Own Business…

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.”
