I heard this phrase, “Let all flowers bloom“, on the radio this morning and I really liked it. I have been getting a little frustrated that all my hard work isn’t paying off as well as others around me (Read: I’ve been getting a little jealous). I feel really guilty when I am jealous of others because I should just be happy for them, and I am happy for my friends and peers when good stuff happens to them. I am usually the first one to spread the good news and love! I get excited and happy for them and it is genuine. But sometimes I feel bad that I’m disappointed in myself because I’m not as “good”.
In times like this I need to remember that ALL FLOWERS CAN BLOOM! Just because someone else won a race doesn’t mean I can’t PR, or just be happy for how I did. Just because someone is planning their dream wedding doesn’t mean someone special isn’t waiting for you 🙂 We all have dreams and goals. One person achieving their goals doesn’t make it any harder for you. So, let your friends and neighbors’ flowers bloom, and even help them along if you can. Because a garden is prettiest with many different colors and flowers 🙂
Marathon Training: I did not want to go running this morning. This doesn’t happen very often, but the drizzly, gloomy weather every morning is finally getting to me. I had no desire to step outside in the gloom, but I don’t know if it’s going to rain tomorrow (again!) so I figured I shouldn’t waste a day of reasonably dry weather inside. I did 5.5 miles and walked some (see I told you I wasn’t feeling it!).
Breakfast: When I got back home I didn’t even wait to shower and cracked open a box of my new cereal. I had a mix of cereals with milk and a PB naner.
This is kind of gross to admit, but I’ve been getting super sweaty in my sleep lately. I think it’s because we got a fancy down comforter as a wedding gift and it’s a little too warm to use it yet. Anyways, all this night time sweat is making me dehydrated. So I am going to keep track that I’m drinking at least three bottles of water everyday. Sometimes dehydration makes you hungry and we don’t want that!
