My Year To Thrive

"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style." ~Maya Angelou

RUNNING is quality time with ME.

via Motivational image #18 | Fit for a year

Found this & had to share.  This is exactly how I feel about running.  It is a great time to think things over.  I feel so much stronger & more capable, even when anxiety provoking thoughts enter they are far easier to push out.  There’s also the confidence that comes from connecting with your body when so often, especially as women, we are sent negative messages about the wrongness of our bodies, no matter what size or condition they are.  Being able to connect with & learn to appreciate your body for what it can do rather than how it looks is amazing.  I wish everyone could experience that for themselves.  Physical activity, whatever you enjoy doing, is some of the best medicine for good mental health.

  1. Great graphic! Totally how I feel – my workouts (on the days I’m not teaching class) are ME time. There’s something special about that time spent taking care of yourself – I’m convinced I’m a better person because of it!
