We become what we repeatedly do.

Sean Covey, The 7 habits of highly effective teens

Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.


It had been a week I haven’t done my 30 minutes treadmill exercise, for so many reasons, I was having my period, I felt too tired with so many work loads, my ankles hurt, my knee hurt, I’ve had headache… I am absolutely capable to write a volume of reasons…so, let’s just stop it here.

So, on the eighth day, in the afternoon, I turn off my laptop and then put on my running shoes. I was worried about my ankles, I was thinking I may not even able to pass that 30 minutes program. With so many doubts on my head, I put on my headset, set the treadmill playlist on. I started with Katy Perry’s summer Olympics 2016 song entitled “RISE”. I like the lyrics, I like the message carried by the song and the song help me to tame the worry and fear on my head.

You have a treadmill playlist? Yes. At first, I choose any upbeat song that I like and I thought it will pump up my energy during the work out session, I was wrong. I am a very wordy person, I believe the immense power of words, so “any upbeat song” will not able to lift up my exercise mood. I need a song that good to my ears and sing to my heart too. My definition of a good song for a workout session is a song that give you a support, the lyrics should be saying you can do this; Be faithful that everything will getting better, you just have to be patient and keep doing the good habit.

Cheers, for us who try to stick to our new good habit,

Karin Sabrina
