The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes-

Have you ever witnessed something that makes you stop right in your tracks and watch in awe?  Something truly amazing, something you have probably never seen before?  We had one of these moments last night and we would like to share it with you this morning…Honestly stop whatever is occupying you at this moment and let yourself be amazed for eight minutes!

We had originally planned to beat some topic to death today…let this video sink in for a moment, life is truly amazing!!!

Earlier in the week we spoke about (albeit briefly) Changing the Definition of Fitness.  Fitness can be anything you like, so if wandered over here and made it this far?  Change fitness to…pixie dust if you like.

It truly is important to note that we are forever changing, right now as an example; you just changed.  Each and every time you beat yourself up for going through the same old thing again chances are the experience is more nuanced this time around, hopefully with more insight then you had before.  This new experience is always changing…Each and every pico second of the day.

What do we expect you to take away each time this happens?  Please take note that there are days when you may not want to exercise, eat right, go train, whatever . This is not the end of the world and we know for a fact that you will get out and exercise again!  This is what we like to call Changing the Definition of Fitness and getting back to your true self, back to your goals, and back to another opportunity to  redefine them in a more nuanced and personal manner.

The Plan-

Perspective:  Either this is the best news in the world or the worst?  Where do you stand?!? LINK

The Workout-

Pulled from our “Have a smile on your face” series here at CultFit HQ:

We have written ad nauseam about performing or engaging in a program that you thoroughly enjoy.  If you feel inclined go back and re-read all 290 or so posts that point this out.  So on that note:

Not for time…

One Hour Swimming rinse off and followed by:

Deep meditative yoga…you know where we stand on yoga so this is not the crap you do down at YogaMed or film yourself in the living room in tight Lululemon attire to post on MeTube later…

15 Minutes of Leg Drains and 15 Minutes of Inversions

Notes:

Life is more important than just working out.  Watching your kids play, witnessing a magical moment in life…It’s moments like these where we need to step back and ENJOY who we are and where we are.  Have a great weekend watching the Australian GP and be sure to cheer for CultFit Racing Team member: Lewis Hamilton!  Be safe and ENJOY!!!

  1. Love it! Just because something was true in the past, why must it be true now? You are not longer the same person. As you just changed us with this video. Awesome post.

      I could go on and on about the video as a space geek…a simple change of perspective is amazing. Not to mention the HD video and the sound produced by Skywalker Sound…Thank you for your kind comments, truly appreciate them!

    This was a cool and necessary diversion for me today. I love your perspective and your passionate fervor for life. I look forward to being challenged to move…to live…with your future posts. MMF

    Hello 🙂 Thanks for liking my post earlier! I totally agree with the last quote, that worrying will only drain today’s energy out. But I guess it’s just hard to stay calm and focused sometimes…which it the case with me. I get frustrated and everything just starts to feel like trouble and then I don’t feel like doing anything anymore. I wish I could stay more motivated through my everyday life!
