We all have different sources that we draw inspiration from. Some people look at athletes, movie stars, and entrepreneurs. I am inspired by countless people, both celebrities and people in my own social circle. Who doesn’t love a movie or TV show where the main character fights against all odds to defeat the villain and save the day? One of my biggest sources of inspiration as a kid was Anime.
I had a fun year in Buffalo, but I had a cloud hanging over my head. I kept wondering ‘What if I had moved to Tampa?’ I kept thinking about the warm weather, beaches, night life, all the reasons I originally wanted to move down there. After a week in my new Buffalo apartment I was already regretting the decision and beating myself up for it. I felt like I missed the boat and was watching it sail away.
The new year has arrived and everyone is making their resolutions. I already wrote my stance on all that here so I’m not going to dig into it again. A lot of people, filled with motivation and drive, will get a gym membership. They will go religiously for a couple weeks, maybe even a month, then lose their focus. They’ll start making excuses about how they don’t have the time or energy to do it. Their gym membership will collect dust, in a sense, and it’s likely they’ll never use it.
It is no big secret that exercise is part of a healthy lifestyle, but a lot of people don’t make a trip to the gym part of their daily or even weekly routine. I get it: life can be overwhelming sometimes. We get caught up with school, work, friends, taking care of kids, etc. But besides looking and feeling good, there is a big benefit of exercise that a lot of people don’t think about: Confidence.
