One of my favorite blogs to read is one I found not too long ago – Olive To Run is inspirational, hilarious, and a really great read. I always want to go run like 20 miles after reading one of her posts. Today she posted her “Current State of Mind” and I decided to play along and fill out her little survey as well.
I feel… like I am starting over. It’s as if every struggle from before is gone, erased, and I am left with this clean slate. While daunting, and scary, I feel somewhat at peace.
I want… to focus on the important things, the stuff that matters, not the fluff, window dressing, and drama that seems to take up my time.
I need… to find joy in the people around me, not the things. I need to center myself with those who care about me, and forget those who don’t.
I have… little to no patience, and I have to make this change. I have to sit and know that in time things will work out as they should.
I am thankful for… My family, my friends, this blog, my job, my schooling, my legs for letting me run, the things in life I seem to forget when something goes wrong. Those things don’t go away, and I shouldn’t let the negativity shroud them.
I would like to… Give back everything that my parents, and my husband have given me. Their support in every way is why I am here, and I will spend the rest of my life trying to make it up to them.
I dream about… How things will be when I am accepting of myself.
I prefer… to think of life as a weekend separated by work weeks.
I listen… not enough to God. But I need to step back, shut up, and wait for his direction.
I appreciate… those quiet moments when I can stop thinking and just breathe it all in.
I know… that where I am now, is not where I will always be. I know that with time, I will find my footing and my path and it will be glorious.
Can you believe it’s been 12 years since the 9/11 attacks? I am still emotional about the subject, and this morning on the radio it seemed every station was playing some rendition of a sad song with clips intermixed from the news that day. While I am sure I could fill an entire weeks worth of posts about how I felt, where I was, and the aftermath in my life, I’ve decided to simply state that I am proud to be an American. Regardless of where politically you stand, we all stand under the same flag. I am united in the thought that I am – as you are – lucky to be in this great land, and we are living in the best time of our history. It might not seem as such with all of the negativity swirling around, but really, in comparison, we are not going backwards. We are moving forward, and there will be more good days ahead.
I’m excited about my run this afternoon. I am planning on 5 miles, and with the weather the way it is it will be on the treadmill. I am just resigning myself to being a treadmill runner until it snows. Okay, maybe not that long, but for a while at least. Bring on Grey’s Season 3 on DVD!
It’s Wednesday and we are having Fish Tacos! I am so excited about this. SO SO SO excited about this. I love me some fish tacos. Just had to get that out there.
