I ran…

Your warm house and your coffee will still be there after you put in the miles…

I ran today, I put on my running tights, as well as a  couple good layers to protect me from Winter, as it truly has to be.

I ran with my watch and it’s GPS just to keep track of what I had done.  I ran, over hills of snow and through the puddles on the path.  Still I ran to get me through a few silent moments with just the road ahead.

I ran to filter emotions and talk myself through what winter has done.  I ran to get away from the world for a minute and to get back to myself, the me that I need to be daily.

I ran to burn some calories and sweat a bit for sweating helps cleanse the body like the rain helps cleanse the Earth, as it truly needs to be.

I ran, opening up to myself and to help show you…

Running today

It is cold out and your bed is warm…

crossfitrunner73

I will run today, I won’t run fast for the road won’t allow it.  I will run today, for the miles need to come to me, they need to come home to my soul and just rest in me for awhile.

I will run today for my body tells me so, and in those miles I will fill myself up with warm thoughts of moments passed and moments to come for I will be present.  There won’t be music in my ears or music on my mind but it will come to me anyway like a mantra that will get me through the miles effortlessly!

I will run today, I will run till it is time to turn around and come home, for home is where your heart lies.  I will put one foot in front of the other and allow my body to feel the smooth, cold, dry air…

I ran, opening up to myself and to help show you that if you try you can open up to yourself too.  I ran to be with my spirit, to experience the day with the wind in my face and the sweat on my brow as if to say thank you to God for helping me be here today.

I ran, openly,honestly and fearlessly for all to see!

Enthusiasm

Running shape

I wake up everyday and have for as long as I can remember with enthusiasm for what is to come.

I have always realized that what I choose to put into myself and the day ahead can and will make a difference.  I just have to be thankful for the opportunities I choose to be part of by walking out the front door and participating in LIFE.

Many times it includes running shoes or a camera, for those two things help me move forward and be better than yesterday, always!

You to can change your life by trying new things to motivate and inspire yourself and then sharing them with the world around you.

That my friends is what Enthusiasm is and will help you find your center as you find more gratitude in the moments you allow yourself to participate in.

Goodness

sharing good thoughts

what does that word mean?  Why is it important, to have goodness inside of you?  These are two important questions that only you can answer for yourself really.  But i will discuss me a little so you may better understand for yourself.

     Well if you don’t know me yet you will in a minute, I have many bumps and bruises,replaced acl,plate and six screws, couple sets of stitches as well as mental fatigue from a life lived.  My heart has been broken and I have broken a few hearts as well…

     But through it all I choose to move forward and be better than yesterday, as long as that is my goal and I choose to act on it then I can live with Goodness in my heart.  I have chosen to accept people for who they are not what I could hope for them to…

We all have an opportunity to be part of something special, OUR LIVES! How long will you wait to take charge of your existance? Life is a CHOICE not a REQUIREMENT!!!

You either take charge of the moment or the moment takes charge of you… You may be saying how do I do that,what step can I take to become the me I see in my dreams? Well I tell you this it will hurt but it will be worth it,you have to do the things that scare you most like becoming your best friend and not your worst enemy. Because you have to live with yourself you might as well learn to accept and enjoy who you are and how you got here… Then put one foot in front of the other to a life you see in your dreams, for if you dream it you can live it.
