This is my favorite fridge magnet. It's a quote by John Bingham, the runner also known as "The Penguin."
John used to be morbidly obese, a smoker, and in a lot of trouble health-wise. He took up running, no matter that he was (and is) a very slow runner, and it changed his whole life.
He's called The Penguin because while in his head he feels like he looks like a gazelle when he runs, the reality is more that he looks like a waddling penguin.
John doesn't take himself too seriously. He's great like that.
Anyhow, this magnet is a famous quote of his, and I find it inspiring in my life, over and over.
I have a lot of stuff going on in my life. I have a demanding job, a rich and varied home life with a big polyamorous family, a podcast, a side business, the books I write, and just my life in general.
Sometimes it sounds exhausting when I read the list aloud to others. But you know what? It's great. I love that I'm ambitious in my life, that I'm always moving towards more.
