EVERY👏🏼SEASON👏🏼SERVES👏🏼 A👏🏼PURPOSE👏🏼 Repost from @daniellehartruns
5 Years Down & a Lifetime to Go! That’s the thing about running; as long as time permits, it will always be there for me. There is no timeframe, no right or wrong; you’re here to live your life and feel good about it. Trust the timing of your life.
Running has led me to do the most amazing things in life:
Just 5 years ago, my journey began when I ran my first 5K race. Little did I know what that race did for me; it set my journey to flight. The things I have accomplished from running pregnant twice up to the day my water broke for each, to scoring a BQ on my first marathon, to listening to my body through it all, being the best motherly example, all the way to giving my body the love it needs.
No matter what the journey looks to you, make sure you are living and finding a way to be happy. I have learned so much this year and I can honestly say I am better for it. The journey never ends; you may have to change directions but ALWAYS KEEP GOING.
Note to self: This is YOUR journey, your body, your mindset; dig deep, own it and start doing things for you and by you. Not everyone will understand and that is OK.
BUT at the end of the day, don’t trade your authenticity for approval.
Life is too short. Just continue to do what makes you happy because at the end of the day everyone deserves happiness and a life they love. I have always believed that everything happens for a reason. Find joy in your journey that you are actually living.
The first thing you should know about me is that I’m not you. Another woman’s success is not the absence of your own.
It’s your journey, your story, your life. If you want to fly, give up everything that weighs you down👏🏼🖤
