MARATHON MONDAY

IT’S MARATHON MONDAY!

Happy Boston Marathon Day! 🏃🏼‍♀️🏃🏼‍♂️🦄💙💛✨

Congratulations to all the runners running today!

**

I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I ran the Boston Marathon, and fulfilled one of my life dreams. 😍

While I am a little sad I’m not running it this year, I know there are limited spots in the race. Not only do you have to qualify, but depending on how many other people qualify and register, you still might not get in.

**

I remember how absolutely ecstatic I was last year for the amazing opportunity to make my dreams come true,

so this year, I keep telling myself that

because I’m not running it, there is one other person who is.

One more person gets the opportunity to run their first Boston Marathon, to feel that indescribable feeling, to make their dreams come true.

And I’m still disappointed, but reminding myself of this makes it okay.

**

But I’ll still be back next year. 😉🏃🏼‍♀️🦄💙💛✨

What’s the most beautiful thing you saw today?

“COME BACK STRONGER.”

No one likes setbacks — whether it’s an injury, illness, or some other unexpected situation life throws at you.

BUT when you’re injured, your body heals and you come back even stronger.

When you go through other hard situations, you learn and come back mentally stronger.

Whatever you’re going through — physically, mentally, emotionally, whatever —

COME BACK STRONGER. 💪🏽💪🏽

I am not fully healed, I am not fully wise, I am still on my way. What matters is that I am moving forward. — Yung Pueblo

I am not fully healed,

I am not fully wise,

I am still on my way.

What matters is that I am moving forward.

I read SO many inspiring stories and it’s so easy for me to think, “Wow, that’s great, they went through that and healed that/learned that. Their life must be perfect now!” while I’m still over here working on everything in my own life.

REALLY — We are all human. We’re all on a JOURNEY. It’s not about the end. It’s not about being healed, or enlightened, or perfect, or getting there.

Don’t get me wrong! — It’s great to read others’ stories and be inspired. And we should DEFINITELY be proud of things we have healed and learned from, how far we have come, and share our stories to inspire and help others!

But remember — We are ALL HEAL-ING. We are all LEARN-ING. We are all still on our way. And we are all MOV-ING FORWARD.

The Universe is saying to you today: “No matter the choices you have made in the past, the actions and path you take today creates your future. Do not doubt your abilities. I am always with you every step of the way. Trust yourself and move forward.”

Dear Me

Dear me, you’ll be older one day

I’m writing from the future and you’re doing ok

Dear me, hold on to what you’ve got

Things are gonna change, but change is better than you thought

(You’re gonna get yourself get yourself get yourself together

you’re gonna get yourself get yourself get yourself together)

Dear me, I know you’re scared as hell of everything right now

But don’t get lost in where you’re going

Dear me, you’re gonna fall in love with the girl that you live next door to

And you have no real way of knowing

Don’t know who you are, don’t know who you are

Don’t know who you are, but I know you’re trying

Don’t know who you are, don’t know who you are

Don’t know who you are, but you’re multiplying

Dear me, you’ll be older one day

I’m writing from the future and you’re doing ok

Dear me hold on to what you’ve got

Things are gonna change, but change is better than you thought

(Said you’re gonna get yourself get yourself get yourself together

you’re gonna get yourself get yourself get yourself together)

Dear me, don’t keep people in your life that treat you like crap

And don’t lose sleep over em either

Dear me, never give up on the good that rests inside of you

And don’t believe the non believers

You’re gonna make mistakes, gonna make mistakes

Gonna make mistakes let em fall behind you

You’re gonna make mistakes, gonna make mistakes

Gonna make mistakes, but they won’t define you

Dear me, you’ll be older one day

I’m writing from the future and you’re doing ok

Dear me hold on to what you’ve got

Things are gonna change, but change is better than you thought

(Said you’re gonna get yourself get yourself get yourself together

you’re gonna get yourself get yourself get yourself together)

Take care of family and the ones you love

Put all your energy into human touch

Staying young is hard to do

So when life’s getting serious, just don’t take it so serious

Dear me hold on to what you’ve got

Things are gonna change, but change is better than you thought

(Said you’re gonna get yourself get yourself get yourself together

you’re gonna get yourself get yourself get yourself together)

Keep growing up, but don’t get old

Take care of what you can control

Respect the hearts that you will break

Forgive mistakes that you will make

If I were you I would not care

When some old man says to beware

So you probably won’t listen to a word I say

probably won’t listen to a word I say

probably won’t listen to a word I say

But we’re doing ok

Dear me

If only everyone could feel as good as I feel when I’m running, it would probably solve most of the world’s problems. — Roberta Gibb
