for my 10K training I've been running around the reservoir. it reminds me a lot of the pond in hyde park and london naturally. I can't believe it's been four years since I lived there. I am dying for a visit across the pond but, in exchange I will definitely take the views in my neck of the woods. they are pretty breathe-taking. which leads me to thinking about how much time I spend longing for something. I'm trying to pin point what is a healthy amount of wanting that keeps me reaching higher, but not so much so that I can't enjoy the now. I have a friend who begins almost every sentence with "I'll be happy when...." and it pains me that she can't seem to enjoy where she is right now.
I don't want to miss out on enjoying where I am because I'm thinking about where I have been or could be.
These photo's make me so happy!!! I miss running. I've got major injuries now and I hate it. Run a mile for me!!!ReplyDelete
I can barely run a mile for myself these days but when I get my rear in gear I'll toss one in for you too!Delete
I have to remind myself about that sometimes. I can get so caught up wanting Spencer to finish school and for me to not be working that I forget that I can fully enjoy life while we are still in school and I'm working. Also, I love running around the reservoir in the early morning. It's so magical.ReplyDelete
totally, enjoying that now needs to be a constant effort, but we can do it! oo I need to try the morning run!Delete
Such beautiful pictures :)ReplyDelete
Such a good reminder and something I have to tell myself on a weekly (sometimes daily) basis. There really is beauty in everything & everywhere you are, you just have to look for it!ReplyDelete
