Embracing The Changes In Life

Someone recently asked me about my running and how I currently feel about it. True, I'm not running 5 days per week as I have in the past. I'm not even running my usual 3. I think my new norm for awhile (maybe forever) might be 2 days a week.

How do I feel about it? I feel liberated. I feel like stepping outside of the model of runner to something bigger. Because I've said it before, and I will say it again, I am more than just a runner.
As I grow older with my family, I realize that life is constantly changing. I am constantly changing. And learning to embrace the change definitely makes for an easier transition. For probably the first time in my life, I am

So Glad That Valentine's Day Is Over

Anyone else glad that Valentine's day is over? I personally am. And by mid afternoon / evening yesterday, I had banned myself from Facebook.

Honestly, it's too much pressure. It felt like the duel between the have and the have nots? You feelin' me on that?

Just Friday I posted about What Is Love? And although my feelings didn't change since that post, it was extremely hard not to get caught up in what it felt like my Valentine's day should have been.

Yes, hubby surprised  me by planning ahead and getting me flowers (which I love).

But the day was
by no means what I was seeing on Facebook or what Valentine's day is commercially made out to be.

And I woke up this morning so glad that it was over. And I had the same conversation that I have had with myself in years past. Why oh why do I let this day get to me? Single or married, why do I let this day create such havoc and negative emotion in my life!?!

And why do I always feel such relief when the day is finally over?

When am I going to learn?

I had hoped it would be this year but apparently not (insert sarcasm). Maybe next year.

What about you? Do you ever let social media make you feel as if you aren't measuring up to what others are doing? Am I the only one who struggles with comparing myself to others?

  1. I had such a crappy week that Valentine's Day was meaningless to me. I guess that's a silver lining, right? I even forgot to give my boys their valentines I bought for them. It's not a big day at our house anyways.

    1. Sorry about your crappy week! My son LOVES all holidays ha ha... so I think we'll be celebrating every holiday now which Hubby and I haven't really done in the past.
