I got my mind stuck in a less than optimal place this afternoon, while taking a break from my work to get some exercise on the rowing machine in the basement. Some “what’s the point anyway” thoughts started getting to me. Most of the time, I can ignore that stuff pretty well because I know that the point is to be stronger, healthier, longer-lived, and generally better able to explore the future and see what kinds of interesting adventures happen. So, usually I’m not inclined to give up. But today, I felt like it would be helpful to give myself a reminder by posting this image for my Nurturing Thursday entry.

Word-art that says, "I want to see what happens if I don't give up."

Nurturing Thursday was started by Becca Givens and seeks to encourage self-nurturing and to “give the planet a much needed shot of fun, support and positive energy.”


  1. Great reminder Meg! I gave up my exercise routine, I was doing so good, but after a few weeks of vacation it was too difficult to go back. Hope you are doing well and happy autumn to you!

    • Yes, I’m doing well, thanks. Maybe it’s the change of seasons that makes it hard to stick with an exercise routine. The shorter days and low-hanging clouds leave me wanting to curl up with a cup of hot tea instead.
