Embracing The Changes In Life

Image
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

When You Lack Confidence

Confidence - it's something that's never come easy for me. As I find myself approaching 43 (in a few days) I realize this is something that I struggle with - not only with body image, but in many areas of my life. And when someone doesn't believe in me, well it makes it even harder to believe in myself. 

But you know what, I've said it before, and I'll say it again until it is so inside my brain that I can't forget. I am enough

I'll say that again. I AM ENOUGH





I don't need to be thinner, larger, smaller, taller, shorter, faster, slower, better or anything else. 

I... yes, lil ole me... am enough... and I don't need anyone's approval to make me feel enough. I don't need justification for me to feel that what I do is worthy or necessary. 

Sometimes being a stay at home mom (and I'm sure working moms/dads) can feel the same, but I feel like I have to constantly justify TIME. Yes, time. Oh, he took a nap? So what did you do during that time? So how do you use the time when he is at preschool? And the list goes on and on. And with Lil Man approaching kindergarten it's getting worse. 

I often feel that I have to justify my time (or lack therof) during the day. So for anyone curious about how I will use the 2 hours 45 minutes when my son will be in kindergarten, well it's pretty much none of your business. Just like it's none of my business how you use your time throughout the day. 

For years now I've felt the need to justify myself as a Mom, a Runner, an Athlete, an Ice Cream Lover, and a Blogger.. well guess what.. as I approach the ripe ole age of 43, I don't need to justify myself to anyone. 

I am enough. I am worthy. And I believe in me.. Hmmm... maybe I am finding that confidence after all....
