Do one thing a day that scares you, that moves you outside of your comfort zone. I try to live by this. I’m trying to do what I can to keep moving forward, keep moving up, and just plain keep moving.
It’s so easy to just stay put. To stay stagnant, to not try something new. We get so comfortable in our shells, that we infrequently try to move outside of them.
And even if you don’t succeed, you don’t get what you want, sometimes, just putting yourself out there is enough.
We all struggle to be somebody. To do something worth while. Or at least most of us do anyway.
Running gives a sense of accomplishment. A sense of doing something. But what to do when it doesn’t? Something I’ve struggled with lately.
We’re starting to get in to the very long mileage of training, and honestly, I’m at the point where I’m ready to just go, no matter what the outcome.
But alas, I have no control over the race dates. I have no way of speeding up time (dear Doctor where are you and your TARDIS?).
And so I sit, and I push myself, and continue in these miles. Continue the struggle, continue to try, continue to put myself out there, continue to be, as much in running as in “real life.”
Run on, friends. And Don’t forget to do what scares you.
