mo·jo1 ˈmōjō/ noun US
a magic charm, talisman, or spell. "someone must have their mojo working over at the record company"
Everyone is motivated by something and usually what motivates you has a little MAGIC swimming around it. It captures your attention, makes you stand a little taller, feel a little stronger and helps you conquer the day! Whether it's a Cup of Joe, an inspiring individual or a song that just gets you going... it's THAT magic we love to breath in to help push us through tough challenges throughout the day.
What's your MOJO? Do you know what it is? Right now, my MOJO is a deep inner strength that I can't explain. It's so deep that it comes and goes...and when it comes...OH MY...it's something much greater than myself!
This week, I am definitely going to rely on that inner strength because it when it showed up for my 5K...Uh...WOW, the feeling was amazing and it really pumped me up mentally! Something I really need right now.
See, I started my next level of training this past week (yes, I think I am some Olympic athlete...LOL!) and I COMPLETELY forgot I registered for a 5K until I got an email late Friday afternoon reminding me to pick up my number. I thought, OH, OK! I will just have fun, not run too fast (because I didn't think I could) and enjoy the festivities.
Y e a h... r i g h t.
The announcer said GO and about 3 minutes into the race I found my comfort zone and never looked back! I ran a whole minute and 20 seconds faster than expected and felt AMAZING after the run! So, needless to say, I am still on a Runner's High and I would like to stay there for a few days! Ha!
So, whatever magic you find this week, hold on to it, stay focused and enjoy the ride!
