I miss running.
I’m going to run tomorrow. Don’t try and stop me.
Okay, not that you would. At all. I’ve been sick and off my feet for a couple weeks. I’m still congested but I think it’s just the aftermath of winter coldmageddon 2011 and hopefully it’s through.
I’ve also been dealing with more anxiety than I’ve felt in a while involving many different aspects of my life. Most(if not all) of which I cannot control, even though I want to try. I really just need to let go, because it’s not good for me to be this anxious all the time. Luckily, I can control it and focus on the positive but there are those moments where the anxious thoughts creep in and it’s all I can think about. Do you ever have times like that? I must remember, this too shall pass.
I’m normally very good at staying positive. I’ve realized it’s never easy, it’s like exercising your mind. You must push the negative thoughts out and positive thoughts in and it will get easier over time. Trust me.
Anyway, while there is so much out of my control, I can control the little things around me. Things like praying, spending some quiet time reading my bible, cleaning our place, buying my favorite coffee house drink, writing in this blog and working out.
I think I need me some endorphins. Just look how happy I look here:
I mean here..
Yes, I think moving and taking care of myself would do me some good..
..and maybe eating a cookie or two.
Yep, I’m going for a run (and baking) tomorrow.*
*I would run today but we’re cooking dinner for friends who just had another baby. Pizza, great friends and newborns to play with? Yes, I think that’ll also do me some good.
