Often in my life I've felt powerless to change things. Powerless to change the perceptions others have of me, powerless to change my station in life. Powerless to do a lot of things. In the last couple years I've been underemployed, laid off, stagnated in my weight loss, and felt like I couldn't control any of it. I've felt helpless and vulnerable. I've felt like I wasn't ever going to amount to anything. Most of all, I felt like nothing I did would ever change any of that.
I'm fed up. I need to prove to myself I have the power to change my life. Time to get up and go. I don't need to eat as much as I do. I can exercise harder, longer, and faster. I can change my life.
I'm going for a run.
