Whenever I feel like I need to encourage myself, be it to achieve something or even to boost my morale, I go out and run.
I don’t run for competition or any other reason most of the times, but I learned that after every run I am so energetic: full of fire and I can do anything. I am always positive about things and that on its own encourages me to go beyond areas that I never thought I will go to and break the barriers that sometimes we fear to visit.
Running is the best medicine I believe God has blessed me with because during this time I achieve a lot. Planning is one of them because this is when I organize my day, I mean anything. I am an early riser by nature so during the early hours of the day I am 110% active, oozing with energy and overflowing with zeal. With time I have learned to use it for my best. I run ! What I have also learned and loved is that ideas come flogging in my mind as I am running. This is the time I connect with myself: I connect with self; I become aware of things and I act.
Writing my journal, reading and playing games that activates my mind are other activities that I do when I do not run. But in essence they all involve physical action (although mild), but I can’t keep up with just sleeping.
I am encouraging you as readers that every human has that thing that is called passion. There is something that we feel sane, accomplished or healed when we do them. It is that something that until you do it you don’t feel ok. I am glad I know and have found my medicine. This is what keeps me away from the doctor.
Hope you are inspired as you read and your day today will be filled with more energy, ideas, excitement and above all blessings. You are unstoppable and nothing will pull you down after reading this article.
With love ❤️
