“Life is either a daring adventure, or it is nothing.” Helen Keller
Good morning everyone!! I hope you had an amusing weekend! Mine was nothing short of a yoking, a yoking of my yogi self. With all the yoga teacher training, I about fell out from
tiredness transformation. We actually spent an entire day on yoga therapy which was pretty darn cool because (SURPRISE!) I wanna be a yoga therapist! I start school next year! Yay!
I’m in a pretty cheery mood today because #1, I ran…(and #2) outside. Can you believe it? I FINALLY ran OUTSIDE, as if I hadn’t run outside for a thousand years. It has felt like a thousand years. Maybe more. A month. Just a month. But… a month too long…
Let me get emotional (for a bit) and tell you about my morning run. It was…(in a word) emotional. I ran on snow. I slipped on ice. I ran in the cold. I ran in the sunshine. I felt graceful. I felt lost. I felt found. I felt an explosion of fireworks inside my heart. It was magical. To be outside… to just… be outside…
Honestly, I hadn’t been myself lately, well, not when it came to running. I’ve been frustrated. I’ve felt edgy and to be bold, I’ve despised running… inside the gym…on that small (small) track that felt more like a merry-go-round ride than a run. I’ve felt nauseous for an entire month.
My words of wisdom:
Nothing is permanent. Life is forever changing. The path you’re on now will zig-zag and throw fire balls at you, but don’t get discouraged. You can handle it. I can handle it. We can handle it. It’s the small breakthroughs in life that make it all worthwhile. It’s a view like this, that makes every run worthwhile. XOXO
