Let’s take a moment to talk about how silly we can be sometimes.
Yesterday afternoon I left work late, feeling overwhelmed and frustrated. I contemplated going home and throwing myself a grand pity party (I am in event planning, after all). Luckily, however, the bus route I take passes directly in front of the gym I belong to (this was a strategic decision on my part) and so I hopped off the bus and decided I was going to put all of the negative energy buzzing around in my body towards running the hardest 30 minutes I could. Man, I have never felt so good on a treadmill before! With every surge in the music, I pushed the up button on the speed monitor. I left feeling like I could take on the world.
It’s amazing what a little sweat can do. And that’s all it took to put things in perspective. If all I needed was a hard run to wash my “problems” away, they probably weren’t really worth worrying about in the first place.
