I have so much to "dance" about. But i'm quickly learning that it is hard to dance with a devil on your back. (If you haven't heard this song by Florence and the Machine, or remake by Glee, wow, you are missing out. It's called Shake it Out...Thank me later.)
I have the best husband who is willing to love me through anything.
I have the best family in the world, and I got to add the other best family in the world last August
It is almost Christmas, where I get to spend time with my family and friends.
Nothing to complain about here!
But for some reason I am stuck.
But like the song goes on to say... "it's always darkest before the dawn."
I think the devil knew how happy my life could be, so he jumped right on my back in order to ruin it the best he could. And for some reason I let him... but in the end that visual has helped me to get the motivation to SHAKE HIM OFF!
Or in my choice of methods...RUN him off!
In a moment of weakness, or as I have decided to call it...my quarter-life crisis...I signed up for a marathon. I've finished a few halfs in my life,
but every time I cross that finish line I think i've said something to the extent of, "I don't know how ANYONE doubles that."
But my motivation is this-
if i'm going to be running a few hundred miles in the next few months, i'm bound to find myself somewhere along the way right?
No more of this negativity toward myself and my body. Because if I am going to finish this marathon me and and body are going to have to be the best of friends right?
So it's time to love myself for what I am and run my little heart out. BYE devil. You have no place on my back any more.
Devil- consider yourself SHAKEN OFF! as of...NOW
Side note: if anyone out there runs or knows how to run...feel free to give any and all advice cause I NEED IT!)
