Live today like Phoebe ran in the park!!!

Saturday, August 11, 2012

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.

    When dancing, I always worry about what other people are thinking. Then I tell myself that they are probably thinking that other people are watching them. Dance like you do not have a care in the world and run the same way. Just enjoy yourself.

    Love this blog! What a great way to go through life, with sheer joy!

    I think about that Friends episode often. I remember running like that when I was little. I would never have enough nerve to run like that now, but I secretly would like to.

    As for dancing like Elaine, I seriously hope I don't actually dance like that.

    you go for it I use to care what people thought about me but it no longer matters they do not know me and they will never know what I am all about or who I am so I just do my own thing and I enjoy my life to the fullest
