March Madness - Day 4

Be Spontaneous! It can open your eyes to new things!

When was the last time you did something without a plan?

Sometimes our lives get so regimented that we run on auto pilot. I'm sure you've been there before.

  • It's the place where you get where you're going with no thought. You take the same route over and over and rarely deviate. 
  • It's the marriage where's you co-exist in the same house but it doesn't feel like home. You know what needs to get done and it happens, sometimes taking your spouse for granted. 
  • It's the parent who raises all of his/her children the same way. The parent fails to take into account that each child is an individual and may need something different. 

Auto pilot can be a good thing....at times. But only sometimes.

There is a whole world of experience and excitement that we miss out on when we fail to change things up.

If you're anything like me, you don't like change.

However, I'm learning that change is inevitable. Most importantly, there's so much life and opportunity waiting for you on the other end of change.

Over the past month, I have experienced a change in job, residence, and family circumstance. It's a lot of change all at one time, but I wouldn't have it any other way. My mind is open like never before.

That's what happens when you decide to do something that is not all the way thought through.

YOU SHIFT!

I don't know how long we can pay to run two households.
I don't know how long we can all be apart from each other.
I don't know where I will live in 45 days.
I don't know where the kids will attend school next year.

All I know is that we are LIVING IN THE MOMENT....TODAY!

That's what spontaneity is all about.

What can you do today that's spontaneous?

Happy New Year! I can hardly believe that we are at the top of 2019. That means we made it to another year. One of the things that I do at the end of every calendar year, or at the very, very, very beginning of a brand new calendar year, is take some time to reflect. As I spent some time reflecting on 2018, I specifically took time to reflect on my running journey.

It was such an amazing year. The highlights can be found on my running blog. In a nutshell, there were ups and downs. There were achievements and setbacks. But through it all, there was so many life-transforming moments. One specific date of reflection was October 30. It was a day of wounding, both physically and figuratively.

I had an evening event at work so I decided to start the day with a run. You know, I wanted to get my blood pumping early. The problem was that I waited late in the morning to start, so I decided to do a quick out and back 2-mile run. As I was nearing my finish, I was running at a pretty decent spe…
