LOOKING at this here monitor.
PLAYING some good old 2000s hip hop. oh yes. Outkast, Nelly, Chingy, etc. holla!

FOLLOWING my heart as best as I can.
NOTICING how positivity can drastically improve my mood.
KNOWING that I can get through the Couch to 5K program and then some as long as I keep persisting with it. [maybe I should write about this soon?]
