It’s always exciting to participate in things that will get the heart rate going. Well, maybe the term always is a tad strong. Going to the gym is hard work but, in such cases, that’s more about consistency. Waking up at 3 AM to hit that treadmill grind becomes exhausting at times.

Let an electrifying moment awaken
Face a fear. Forgive a hurt
Take the chance to be unshaken

Make peace after mistakes
Truth tends to be all resolve
Find daily reasons to be thankful
Be the example in constant evolve
