Pep Talk

There are some days that we all need a little pep talk. A push in the right direction. Words of wisdom to get us off our bottom and doing something productive. Today is one of those days for me. And because no one else has given me these words of inspiration, I’m going to go ahead and practice some self talk. Here are some of the things that I try to remember when I’m having days (moments?) like this…

  • I am healthy and capable of the things that I ask my body to do
  • I have a healthy and wonderful family
  • My friends are amazing and supportive, and pretty hilarious as well
  • I have a job and can afford the things I need
  • There is a treadmill in my basement if I need to “run it out”
  • There is candy in my cupboard and wine on my counter 

What more could a girl ask for really?! But in all honesty, the quote that is most fitting for my mood right now is, “You’re only one run away from a good mood.” I don’t know who to give credit to for saying that, but whoever it was, they are brilliant. There is nothing that makes me feel better than going for a run. It can cure any case of the glums, give insight and clarity to problems that seemed unsolvable, and lift up your spirits faster than almost anything. (It will also lift other things on your body, but you need to give it a little more time for that!)

Decide To Be Happy

I’m deciding to go for a run. It’s the shortest distance between where I am right now and happiness!
