Does exercising make you think too much?

So before I venture out to start my work day on a bicycle, I wanted to reflect with you about my day yesterday while riding around. My job entails responding to helping people, approaching suspicious people, being a visible presence, etc…. So in between most of these duties, I have a lot of time to just think. I believe moving around, taking in what’s around you in silence and just being alone gives people a lot of time to think. Yesterday I thought a lot about my future. How I need to make a major decision in my life for the best, but that by making the decision, I am venturing into the unknown. Would you leave a job that you have had for the past 15 years that you were once very passionate about, but now you just go through the motions?  Do you continue to “just be” once the passion is almost gone or has completely dissipated? Do you keep going through the motions hoping that one day the passion will return?brain-thinking

It is good to know, day to day, what to expect when you have already “settled” into the life you have now, but is your health and happiness at stake by “settling”?  Are you putting the well-being of your family at risk too because you might fear change.  “I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear”- Rosa Parks

The previous quote answers the question for me of what I must do. My mind is made up so what do I have to be afraid of? Failing in whatever venture I take on? Well yes, to some, failing is a part of life and that is how we learn, but I think to succeed you must fail in some things, but not in all. It is that one small piece to where you don’t fail that the little light of hope comes through and with that little light, I will use it to make my passion for fitness and helping other make me successful. For me, success will amount to greater health and happiness.

So YES, exercising does make me think too much.
