Life can be tough

So tomorrow morning (Friday) is supposed to be a running day for me but I am just not feeling up for it. I have a meeting early in the morning then I am out all day with errands and I won’t be home until late evening. I think I am going to have to move it to Saturday or Sunday.

On top of being busy my mind has not been able to shut off. I feel exhausted. A relative has been sick for a while and things aren’t looking good at the moment. I want to be hopeful but my mind thinks the worst. All I can think of is how hard this will be on her kids…they are only teenagers. I have been stressing out so much over my future school and career options and then hearing this news is putting things into perspective for me. Your health is so important… if you don’t have your health then none of the rest really matters.

I want to learn to cherish every moment I have here on earth because you never know when it will be your last. Take the time to tell the people you love how much they mean to you. Do something nice for a stranger even if it is something tiny… maybe we can make someone’s day a little better. Appreciate what you have and if you can give back to the community.

On that note I am going in to volunteer for my first day at the Canadian Diabetes Association tomorrow morning. I want to make a difference in my life. I think I want to work for a non profit organization but if my life doesn’t take me there then I will volunteer my time as much as possible. Volunteering has always been a big part of my life and I really enjoy it.

Well I went on a bit of a rant there. Anyways be safe everyone and have a good night.

  1. Sometimes, not always, I find the best way to get all the stress out of my head, for a little while, is to go for a run. No timer. No program. Just going out to get out for a bit. Lately, when I get overwhelmed with stress, I make two lists – one of things that I CAN do something about, and one is a list of things I can’t do anything about. Doesn’t always help, but sometimes just writing it down helps get it out of your head for a bit.

    Deep breaths, and good luck.
