That moment where I felt as if I could take one little skip & I’d immedietly take flight. That is when I knew — I am approaching a beautiful new chapter, the one where my dreams become reality. Can you believe we made it? Lifes got me feeling lifted. I’m on top of the world — stopping here is one of the only things that isn’t on my agenda. Nothing feels better then the adrenaline I get when I see the things I have dreamed of actually happening.
The week is over & it’s time to enjoy what you created! Celebrate, you deserve it. We all do. It’s time to begin forgetting our flaws & loving the little miracles we unconsciously do every single day.
My doctor told me to squeeze a quick workout in when I need more energy after a day at work (ya, so not what I was wanting to hear) Did I listen? Yes. Did I do it? No. Today is a day for things I’ve never done, so I stopped the cycle of one bad habit: laziness. I have three articles due tomorrow & I need authentic energy right now. Instead of going for coffee, I ran.
Often when we go towards the unknown we are surprised with what we find — that was the case in this situation. I ran a new route and discovered my own personal haven. The road was freshly paved & barely big enough for one vehicle. To my left there was a field of freedom: calfs snuggled with their mommas while some just stood & looked at me curiously. To be honest, I would too if I saw a girl running her heart out while oozing with joy (it’s not sweat, it’s bliss – stinky bliss) & taking 849 photos. To my right there was an open field with the mountains behind it — it was the perfect mixture of natures finest.
I realize it’s hard to do some of the things doctors recommend — I’m a firm believer that although they are extremely educated & specialize in caring for our well-being, we know our bodies best. Just because you might not agree with “their way” doesn’t mean you can’t find another way. Take care of yourself by listening, and watching, your body. There are countless ways to be healthy that do not include weight lifting & marathons. Find what works for you & do it. When I’d rather not, I remind myself: our bodies keep track of everything we do, even when we do not.
