Make an Opportunity…

Today I had the day off. And a massage booked for late afternoon. Bliss. So I decided to incorporate it with a power walk to my massage, with the plan of getting a taxi or a tram home. Improvisation at its best. I ended up completely underestimating my ability, and made it to my massage in 17 minutes (I thought it would take about 25 minutes). After an amazing massage, I took it somewhat more easily home, easily doing my 30 minutes plus some for the day.

It was great I could incorporate a commitment into my routine, and manage to not only make my appointment, but use it as a lever to ensure I still exercised, keeping the most important commitment of all, the one to myself. While I may find myself with things that threaten my ability to exercise and nurture myself, there may be other things that once I look at them, are actually opportunities in disguise. Opportunities to give myself the best chance to ensure I look after myself and keep the promises I make to myself like exercising and eating well. There may be more things on my side than I realise…

What other potential opportunities are out there, thinly disguised as challenges?
