To Journal

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

I have always wanted to keep an journal, but I have the hardest time committing to it, it seems as soon as I buy a journal I forget about it. I have been so proud of myself lately that I thought I would take advantage of my transformation and throw journaling into my goals. I have made time to record my progress, feelings, successes and challenges and I am truly enjoying it.

For the last decade I would day dream of the person that I wanted to be, someone who wakes up, makes a cup of coffee, read the paper, then goes for a run... all before work. Someone who chose to ride their bike to work or the grocery store when possible. Someone who made time for adventure, good food, family and friends. I would always look beyond myself in this daydream as if it was impossible. Countless times I have heard myself say " I wish, but I can't" "That's not me."

Well I think all that daydreaming paid off. Because now I look back on the last month, and it is filled with running, early morning stretches, coffee and paper reading, great meals with friends. It is the health of life that I had strived for and today I am living it. I feel great.
