I hope you all are having a great Tuesday. Today is another day to start with a clean slate. Last night I was able to do a lot of things to make myself feel fulfilled. Before I picked up the kids from school I ran 4 miles. I ran four straight miles two days in a row. I started running again last week. It really makes me feel great. For the past several months I’ve been focusing on the Stairmaster which is a great machine and you really get a great work out. I personally feel there is no greater feeling than running when talking about exercise. The constant battle I have with myself to keep on going is really something. I push myself to the limits everytime I start running. I want to give up but I don’t because I don’t want to be a quitter. It makes me think about other things that I can accomplish in my life. Hard work and practice really does pay off. When completed it really feels like you’ve accomplished a whole lot mentally and physically. I can relate a lot of life to running. It’s not easy but you have to keep on trying and going forward. You have breakdowns but to feel good you have to keep on getting up and doing it. In running sometimes you have an injury and you have to heal the same thing with life, sometimes you are down, but you need to get yourself up and go. If you are down today remember you can turn it all around, you have the skills, the ability, the mind and the breath to do it.
Today I write to share that I’m open to being there for others. I want people to know I’m here for them if they need someone to talk to. I’ve really started to be better at listening to people. I’m confident that over the past couple months I’ve opened myself up to be different with people in how I listen and process what they are saying.
Today try to really listen to someone and process it. Try to understand what they are saying. Try to walk in their shoes.
Some of us have chronic health issues, some of us have stressful jobs, family drama, lack of time, etc. We all have something, life is full of things. Today remember that we can make a difference in everyone’s lives by being nice to each other and really show compassion for one another. I read this quote recently ” It’s important to cultivate compassion for our own humanity. When our hearts are open to our own suffering, we being to also be more accepting of others and to we realize that they too have the same struggles.” Today I want to be there for you all of you who need someone.
