If its one thing that I know that I have been really bad at over the years its to be happy about the good things! Even when I won the X games I only managed to stay excited and happy for about an hour before I started looking towards the next goal. Sure that has created a lot of results both in sports and business but I truly wish that I would have appreciated the good things more!
Now when I am stuck in couch with a broken knee I strangely feel more positive than I have over the past 10 years, I get these kicks of happiness for the smallest things and I feel grateful for things I never would have imagined. Yesterday when I started to be able to lift my left I felt almost as much satisfaction as I would have when I was winning a race, this morning I walked to the bath room and was able to put good weight on my injured leg and I felt like I want to punsh the air like I was winning something!
So this is one thing that I am going to try to take with me in the future and really work on appreciating the little things, its just so easy to go through life and keep looking towards an end goal and not live in the present and appreciate it!
