Today was the second day of my “100 days of morning running” challenge. Getting out and about wasn’t so easy on day 2 and I definitely felt more tired than I did yesterday. But I tried to minimize the thought progress and just went out and started running. The run was everything I’d hope for and I felt gracious for being able to breathe clean air and experience the scenery that I did. There were horses grazing under light rain and tasty berries waiting to be devoured by a hungry runner like me! When I got back home, I rewarded myself with a yummy breakfast - porridge and smoothie!
This was a much needed meditation. Yesterday I didn't finish a lot of my goals and I just felt overwhelmed. Like I was trying to do too much, and so I just needed a break. I felt bad about it, but going through this meditation I feel good again. I still have pressure but I don't feel overwhelmed or upset if I don't accomplish my goals. I'm just going to keep pushing through, knowing that I have a purpose
So today I decided to change my route a little bit and it actually helped me run a little bit more in almost the same amount of time and even an even better pace which makes me feel really good about myself today. Life is not always easy and some days are harder than others but remember the only way is keep pushing forward one day at a time. 💪💪
Ok guys, this is me after a 5 day break. I've been struggling with depression over the last couple of weeks, you know it has its ups and downs but definitely and unfortunately the last few days were just the worst. I am fortunate that I have my support system with my shrink and I have friends that care about me and help me get back up when I fall.
It's Ok to fall, it's Ok to talk about mental health. Always keep pushing forward and keep getting up every day. YOU can do this, one day at a time.
