Don’t ever give up

Do we feel like we have to keep trying? At whatever it is we are trying to accomplish? I think we do. I know I can be stubborn at times (good thing my husband does not read this) and have to keep striving for more. Most of the time, I don’t ever feel like I can just give up. Sometimes, things do not go the way we want them to, but we forget that our way is not always The Way. I still push myself to run about 5-6 days a week, even though I am not trying to accomplish a weight loss goal and training for a race. Some days, I walk and talk with my friend and that is always fun, too. On the days that I run alone, that is when I have quiet time for me when I can plan out my day and focus on still trying to run. It still amazes me that even my goal is over, I still cannot wait to start my day and run. The last two mornings, I have been up at about 4:30am. Don’t ask me why – I do not have an answer. It is so refreshing to be outside and work hard and then you have the rest of the day. I used to love sleeping in – now I can’t. My idea of sleeping in is getting up at 6am on a day I don’t have to get up. I read a quote a few months ago that says, You should feel that being you is enough.” When I struggle with thoughts of needing to be better than I was before, I have to remind myself of that quote. I also read that as …”difficult as it is to forgive others, it is more difficult to forgive ourselves.” It is hard to do both – don’t ever give up, but also remember to forgive ourselves if we fall short. We know we will fall short sometimes, and sometimes we will make it. Everyone wants to be around when we make it. We also know that when we do fall short, we have others that will pick us up and encourage us to never give up. Those people are true friends. Find those people in your life and keep them close – they want to be around for the good, but also in case the bad and the ugly come around too. Have a tubular Tuesday! (The California girl came out in me this morning – sorry! :-))
