Welcome To The Meet Mediocrity Blog!
BLOG POST #1
Personal wellness…. It has been a lifelong pursuit for me and for many of us. Encouraging each other to celebrate the highs and push through the lows is what we need – especially when we’re feeling unmotivated or less successful than we’d like to be. I know that’s what I need. When I feel mediocre, I get discouraged. When I get discouraged, I retreat. It’s easy to get that way. And I know I’m not alone! So, it is my wish that this community helps me, and that we can all help each other. Because with some community encouragement, we’re all more likely to stay focused on our wellness and live healthier, more fulfilling lives – at least that’s my plan!
Let me start with the name “Meet Mediocrity”. I am sure some of you are saying, “Huh? Why mediocrity when it comes to wellness? Those two words don’t go together!” Well, actually, for most of us, I think they do – and I think that meeting mediocrity is an important part of achieving wellness and creating the very best versions of ourselves.
Notice, I didn’t name it Settle for Mediocrity or Strive for Mediocrity. But Meeting Mediocrity is important – for a few reasons. First, mediocrity is often the first step towards achieving greatness. You need to meet mediocrity as a stepping stone to better things. The second dimension of mediocrity is that fact that when it comes to our wellness and our wellness activities, mediocre might be the best we can do – and that’s ok! Most of us will never be “among the greatest of greats” in the wellness activities we choose to pursue. Some of us will, but most won’t. But if we love what we’re doing and we’re mediocre at what we’re doing, it’s ok – as long as we keep on pushing ahead and KEEP TRYING. In this context Meet Mediocre can mean – “HI. I’m mediocre. But it is the best I can do and I’m going to keep on doing it!”
overall wellness just by trying!
