This day started off great. I got up early in the morning and left the house to go running at 530am. It was a beautiful morning- very peaceful and sunny. Just a perfect way to start it. Why can't a day start like that every day? I wouldn't have to worry about being too lazy or not motivated. But i know that is not going to happen. There will be grey and rainy days again and it will be dark in winter so I won't be able to go running that early then since there is no light on my trail. I will figure out a way to keep up with my workout when winter is here. Now I will enjoy the hot summer weather and I already set my alarm for tomorrow again.
The rest of the day was kinda slow. I didn't do too much and it was too hot to be outside during the day. It was nice to be lazy and to spend some time with friends and family.
I know that most people are celebrating with their families and friends today and that they have a good time, but right now I kinda feel so depressed and helpless.
I have a couple friends who served or are still serving in the military and some of them have been to combat a couple times. I am so proud of them and grateful for everything they did especially when you see what high price they are paying. I have a very close friend who was diagnosed with ptsd and who has a hard time all those fireworks and I am too far away to help him and knowing that he is suffering that much is just hard. And I am sure he is not the only one suffering tonight. How absurd is it that soldiers fight for the values of independence and liberty and yet are suffering because of those.
Thank you to everyone that served! We really can't say be grateful enough.
