Gratitude is my biggest motivator. When in a state of gratitude, I am reminded how lucky I am (and we all are!) to even be alive. That our life is a privilege is easier for me to understand since receiving a double-lung transplant last year. I am grateful to be able to breathe without supplemental O2, to walk (and even run!) without aid, and to ride freely. More than anything, I am grateful for the opportunity to simply live and love.
I know more that ever that our time here is fleeting, and what an incredible opportunity it is to pursue the height of our potential.
As I continue the journey this year to find my peak fitness, I will be grateful for simply having the chance to do this.
