After spending so much time believing I wasn’t able to wake up early in the mornings to run, I finally can say I’m managing to revert that. Running in the mornings is EVERYTHING for me to accomplish my daily goals, and therefore I’m really happy about this training schedule.
This week I’m attempting to run 6 times. It’s like a personal challenge of consistency. I promised myself I would only break this promise if I was feeling really fatigued, but not due to lack of discipline.
Monday started out with 5 easy miles. I know there are two factors that contributed to this miracle: 1. going to bed early, of course. 2. Having a hearty dinner. Yup. I’m really bad with dinners. I’ll either get a sandwich or a bowl of cereal. This time around, a big dinner really gave me the energy I needed in the morning.
Sandals sound like the most comfortable thing to wear on my feet, after running in this hot Miami summer.
On Tuesday I wanted to take it easy so I ran three miles in the morning. Then went back home to get some delicious breakfast, eggs, butter toast, and strawberries.
My hunger levels were pretty high throughout the day, but I guess is normal when dealing with higher mileage than what I’m used to by this time of the week.
Besides from my running recap of the last two days, I wanted to take a moment to talk about rejection over here. Nothing happened to me, but I’ve been noticing a lot of it in this online community and wanted to give my brief thoughts about it.
It seems like rejection is quite a thing these days. Bullying, dealing with bad comments from your audience, or simply a truly honest opinion about something can make somebody feel really rejected and adopt an offensive reaction.
Let me tell you something, when you cultivate truly love in your heart there’s nothing/no one that can make you feel rejected. If somebody was bullying in you, don’t give them the power to make you feel rejected. If somebody left you an offensive comment on your blog/social media, understand that they must carry lots of hatred in their hearts. If somebody gave you an honest opinion that you did not like, don’t take it personal it probably doesn’t have to do anything with you.
Empower yourself as an individual and stop attaching your wellbeing to somebody else’s opinions. If this method is not working for you, then it’s time to start try again.
How’s you week been so far?
What do you do to love yourself everyday?
