Obstacles occur in our lives, at least in my experience, when things are running smoothly. Depending upon how a person handles a situation, a positive or negative outcome will be the result. Normally I play on the optimistic side, creating positivity and energy to shine from within and reflect on those around me. Lately we have had some obstacles, nothing life altering or drastic just a few minor things we can’t seem to shake or be rid of since these all require a certain one-person to take charge and complete a task. (Don’t worry, it’s not Genki Husband, he does not need to be saved from the doghouse.) So, our lives are stagnant and regrettably my workout routine/healthy eating habits have seen a bit of a decline. It occurred to me today this was my current situation and my only way out of a negative downturn would be to once again try to stay positive and continue on when it is possible. Sometimes we all have to look towards the things we can change and not towards those that can not. Stay positive and see what happens.
