Remember the Friends episode when Phoebe and Rachel ran in the park? She ran like she was 6 years old, enjoying every step. It was sheer joy and not caring what anyone thought about her.
That is my goal for today: Whatever I'm doing it will be with sheer joy and like nobody is watching.
I won't let my normal inhibitions take hold. That is a big deal for me. I'm naturally a wall flower, hiding in the background. I don't like to run in public because someone 'might be watching' and I'll look stupid. Hmmm - fear of looking stupid helped me gain 30 pounds. Maybe it is time to get over it. I had to stop and think about it - do I laugh at people like me when they are out running? No - I think 'good job' and 'wow - I should be doing that.' So why would anyone not think that about me? Maybe I'm making myself out to be more important in other people's lives than I really am!
So I'll run like Phoebe.
And even dance like Elaine.
And have FUN doing it all.
