Now I don’t know if this goes for others but I’ve come to love lifting weights.

There are times when I’m on the bench and bench pressing what could be a new personal best. It’s great and the adrenaline is flowing and I’m excited. I love that feeling.

I’m ready to go and almost about to pat myself on the back out of acknowledgement for a job well done.

Then I get stuck. Then I think all the weight is going to crush me. I love this feeling more.

I put myself under pressure in the gym so real life is easy.

Starting my day in the gym is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

I do the most difficult thing I’ll do all day right away — getting that weight up.

By doing that, I make everything else easier.

Now usually I write about something I’ve learned or experienced or put into practice recently.

This piece of writing though is different.

I got the idea for this piece on Saturday, October 12, 2019, at 11:45 pm while brushing my teeth. I knew I had something I liked. So I grabbed my phone and typed.
