Where was I last week? Well, studying my bum off, that’s where I was. I took my CSCS exam on Saturday, so last week was my crunch week. At this point, all I can do is wait, and although I won’t know whether I passed or not for 6-8 weeks, I’m just glad it’s over. After studying nearly every single day for the past 2 months, I’m looking forward to having more time and energy to put into the blog and other parts of my life (like my social life, which all but disappeared over the last month or so due to studying). Let’s face it, I’m not the kind of person that can sit around and do nothing for long, so I’m sure I’ll find another way to take up my time soon, but for now I’m just going to relax and enjoy a little freedom.
Now I will have time to catch up on a bunch of reading I’ve wanted to do; I’ve been sitting on a book review for you guys for a while now because I just haven’t had time to pay enough attention to the book to do it justice. That will be coming soon, I promise!
I’ve also got some great sports-medicine related posts up my sleeve, so hopefully I can get some pics taken and get those up for you as well.
In the mean time, let’s talk about Twitter.
A long time ago, I wrote this post about being a better version of you. Most of you probably haven’t read it, because I’m pretty sure I had like 3.5 readers back then. Go ahead and read it, I’ll wait…
I think that although it was a quick and kind of silly post, it had a good message. There’s always something you can do to be better. Whether it has to do with fitness, motivation, nutrition, or your contribution to society, there is always a way to be better.
Along those same lines, if you follow me on Twitter (@stephdorsay), I frequently add #BeBetter to my tweets. This has nothing to do with being better than other people (although that’s fun too). It really just has to do with making myself better. What I would like to do is to spread the word. I want everyone to be better. I want people to think about how they can make themselves better every day. Call your mom and tell her you love her. Hold the door for one extra person. Get your ass to the gym even when it’s dark and cold outside, and the only place you want to be is cuddled up on your couch in your sweats.
Compliment people, smile at people, compliment yourself, make time for yourself, learn something new, help someone else learn something new, start a savings account, floss your teeth (but please don’t floss someone else’s teeth. That’s weird.), do 10 pushups, sign up for a class, learn to meditate, foam roll every day, dance a little more, hug it out….
I could go on all. day. long.
My point is, there are a million ways to make yourself better. So do it! And then tweet about it. And add the hashtag #BeBetter to those tweets. Let’s start something here, people! Let’s inspire more people to be better, and make ourselves better along the way.
What can YOU do to be a better you? What’s holding you back?
