Good Luck LAM!!!!
Todays post is dedicated toLam, who will be running in Boston on Monday! As many of you already know, not only is he an amazing runner but Lam always shares wonderful words of wisdom and support! I know his encouragement has meant a lot to me, so this one is for LAM!
Just wish my sign could be there "in person" for your BIG DAY!!!!!
"Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing will disturb your peace of mind. See the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. Think only of the best, work only for the best and expect only the best. Forget about the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Spend so much time on the improvement of yourself that there is no time to criticize others. Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you." ~ Chistian Dior
"Trust yourself. You know more than you think you do." - Dr. Spock
"Fall in love or fall in hate. Get inspired or be depressed. Ace the test or flunk the class. Make babies or make art. Speak the truth or lie and cheat. Dance on tables or sit in the corner. Life is divine chaos. Embrace it. Forgive yourslef. Breathe. And enjoy the ride. " - Solbeam
Usually when you are running you are running away from something, this time I'm running towards myself. You see, it seems that I've "lost" little pieces of myself along the way (you know how it happens - 1 too many compromises, putting your well being second, trying to make someone else see who you are, ...) and now I'm on a journey back to me.
