I Could Live Like This. Just.Like.This

Today is the best I’ve felt in a while. All the crappy things I’ve been through that I tried to not let phase me don’t seem important anymore and anything I don’t have that I wish I did just doesn’t seem like a necessity.

I realized that when you don’t let the small things get to you and if you don’t set the boundaries too high for yourself, you’ll end up with sweet surprises and in my opinion, those are the best kinds.

Like unexpectedly running 6k in 36 minutes without even knowing it. 🙂 Or passing your research design hearing after the LOOOONGEST time. Or being able to scream at your mom to cool her down while having a panic attack. Those things. Those are the things I let pass me by before.

Sour patch kids. All to myself 🙂

I’ve developed quite a liking for running and it is surprising. Well, I have been running for half of my life with all the sports I’ve been involved with but running alone- it’s just something I never really planned for myself.

With running it doesn’t matter where I go- the point is that I’m going somewhere and I guess I like the fact that’s I’m heading places rather than just going back and forth. Maybe that’s why swimming has never contented me.

Today I swore I could fly. As I picked up my pace and as I ran through the street it didn’t matter that I was smearing my eyeliner or someone could’ve possibly seen me [considering it was rush hour]. I felt like I was in my own little bubble and nothing mattered. I also had very good music on which made it even better. I’m sentimental like that.

Tomorrow I’ll be swimming and we’ll see how that goes.

To whoever is reading this, I hope you guys had a good day- I do.
