Today I went for a run! That is a very loose definition, more like a 3km walk with a bit of jogging, and it was awesome 😊.
It was fascinating how difficult it was to get out of bed and put on my running gear. It’s took me about 30 minutes of self argument/phone distraction/dog snuggling before I actually did it.
And then it was great. I saw chickens, cows and even a few humans. I smiled and breathed in the air and nature. I enjoyed every minute. Not once even for a second did I regret it.
I returned home beaming. It has been a long time since I enjoyed something so much with every fiber of my being. A very long time. I felt the old me (pre burn out me) stirring inside.
I thought long and hard about writing about this. Because I’ll probably crash this afternoon and be exhausted. Because it’s just a little endorphin kick. Because who cares. But when you’re down in the dumps and nothing brings you joy even though you are trying (and failing) over and over again… this is a big deal.
