Wanted: One Enemy

I've been feeling a little stuck recently. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my life and every single crazy thing that goes on in it. It just felt a little like I had stagnated. I wanted to be doing better, I wanted to be stretching myself, I wanted to... I didn't know what I wanted which is probably part of the reason I had stagnated if I'm honest.

So I had a think.

What did I need to get me moving forward again? What did I need to get me out of the rut? The answer came to me whilst I was in the shower.

An Enemy.  I needed an enemy.

Now, I know what you are thinking.

Pippa, enemies are bad, you don't need one.

Let me assure you, that I know having an enemy isn't good, but I need one.

I need one so that when I wake up in the morning I don't just put on whatever is least screwed up on the bedroom floor, but that I put on an outfit that makes me look and feel fabulous.

I need one so that when I go out for a run, I don't procrastinate until it is too late for me to go, but that I get out there so that I can be fit and healthy.

I need one so that when I am walking down the street and I think I see them I can walk a little taller, a little more confidently because after all, I am Pippa!

I need one so that I will work harder to be better than them, maybe I'll even learn a new skill just so I can outdo them!

I need one so that I can get out of this rut and get on with being the best me possible.

So. Any volunteers?
