Why I’m Still Not An Exercise Fanatic

Because I’m not going to be able to do them all, and because they’re hard and they take a lot of time to do.

I have always been a big “walk on the wild side” kind of person and I still am. Why? Well, I’ve never been a huge fan of exercise and still don’t think I’m strong enough for much of it. But, I have a lot of good reasons for not being in exercise mode anymore. What I wish was right with me: I wish I could work out in a way that did so much good I could work out five days a week. But I’m not strong enough, I have no time. And, exercise causes too much fatigue, and I just don’t have the motivation. So, it’s nice to get a day off and walk around and look at things for a change, because I can think, ‘How can I use it?’ And, sometimes for a day, exercise is just what that is. So, it’s not that I hate exercise, but I do wish I could do it more. So, it doesn’t mean no more of it, it’s just that I can’t be as committed. I try to do as much as I can, but I’m not all that motivated. And, my body just doesn’t want to work out, so I won’t do it. So, I just need to go out, walk around, look at things and relax. And it’s a lot better than sitting down or writing or reading or anything else. So, I’m really okay with that.

What’s this about what I’m good at? Because I think, a while ago when I was working out more, I thought that I could really put some things together for the blog. And, since then, I’ve gone back to how I started and what I was really good at. But, I’m still in touch with certain things and there are certain things I think I’m really good at and there are some things that I’m not very good at.

So, what are some things I’m good in my own mind that make me really good at what I do? One is, I like to write and write often, and I don’t work off of anything but that, I can put something together really quickly and that’s always good for me. 

And, I’m really good at the creative part. If the idea starts to work, and then I put it out on the page, then I can make it a real good visual product, because I really like to be creative from a visual point of view. That’s how I really started. But, I’ve gotten a little more serious in my visual thinking. 

And, I think that’s one of the things that I’m really good at, and I try to bring that out and try to use that every day. I take a lot of pictures around my place. Most of the time I take more than I need, I just like to take pictures because I think that makes me look more professional or something, but I do actually use them for things. 

Some things that I’ve started using a lot lately are my digital camera to take more professional looking photos, like some of my pictures from the book are done in a more professional way. I don’t really care if they look bad, it’s what’s in the picture that really counts, and with pictures, it’s much easier to tell what you’ve put into them and if you’ve messed up later on.

So, I don’t really worry about the pictures. I don’t look at pictures very often, but I know they work with other things. 

There are a few things that I still love in my own mind. One is, I can’t write that I’m good with people, but I can write things on the page that make people laugh. I’m really good with people, it’s just that I don’t think I’m good with social situations and I don’t know if that has anything to do with it, but I still love to write that kind of stuff. I find it very satisfying. And, it definitely makes people laugh.

Second, I can work really well alone if it’s just me, because a lot of times, I’ll get really frustrated on the phone or in phone calls, especially, if I’m talking to a client, and I’ll get very frustrated. And, I think that sometimes, too often people think that they can just talk to someone on the phone, and they’ll be fine. And, they’re usually not. I don’t care how many times I say the same thing to someone. They have had it hundreds of times, it’s fine.
