So every now an then I get really excited about such simple things. I try to relish the simple things because I think it’s important to not let the blah things in life get you down. Ala, my new work commute, a run that should have been done and wasn’t, or even little things that are easy to obsess over. I try to focus on the positive throughout everything. Even when I have a crappy run, I remember at least I CAN run. When I sit in traffic in the morning, I’ve found a way to be productive by listening to podcasts about social media, writing and marketing. Jamming away to music is always good, but I can’t do it every day so this breaks it up.
So even with the blah things in life, I try to make sure to relish the small things. It’s easy to get caught up in all that’s going on. Sometimes I feel like it’s constantly asking, okay, what’s next, what’s next, what’s next, when in reality, time is already slipping by so fast. I really am going to work hard these last few months of the year to enjoy the now and be in the now. Not worry about what we will be doing next around the house, what I have coming up next I need to get or what I want to buy. I think I really need to take time to be more content with the things I already have and the blessings I have in my life. Everyday I wake up, can breathe and move. What more can you really ask for?
Lately I’ve been trying my hardest to get up early and take a few moments for quiet time. To reflect on what I do have and where I’ve been to get me to where I am. Spending some moments with God. It’s seriously helped me relax a lot and organize my thoughts for the rest of my day and what I want to accomplish. After today’s quiet time I decided to go for a short run. I feel rejunivated after my run now and ready to tackle the day. One day at a time. It makes me more excited for each day to live every day to the fullest, instead of focusing on what’s next to come.
