A couple days ago I lifted heavier weight than usual and added a new move.

I’m still sore.

I haven’t felt soreness in these places in a while – maybe never.

That means I tried something new and did something different.

It means I stepped out of my comfort zone and pushed myself.

I had the courage to try and was willing to be a beginner and look silly.

When I finish a run I feel a good tired.

When I finish working I feel a good tired.

Similarly, this is a good soreness.

I feel productive.

I feel invigorated and fulfilled.

It feels like I did something nice and good for myself.

Who would’ve thought being tired and sore could feel so good?
