Three days ago I had a class where me and my best friend were ‘separated’ for the first time, it was a problem because I had unfriendly people at that class. I was scared to death of looking pathetic and lonely at that class, and I was also scared of feeling pathetic and lonely at that class.
On my way to campus, my mind started to do that thing where it over works it self. From that point on, everything seems worst than it really is.
I went into class and.. it wasn’t AT ALL like I thought it would be. And thats when I realize that, sometimes, being alone is empowering. Realizing that you still can ‘survive’ even though you’re alone, is needed. It’s great if you have someone to lean on, but it’s definitely okay if you’re on your own.
I’m not supporting staying in you comfort zone, or ‘not putting yourself out there’. I’m saying, it’s okay to be alone. Sometimes you need to do stuff by yourself. So, GO OUT AND BE COMFORTABLE BEING AND DOING STUFF ALONE. As Kelly Clarkson once wrote, ‘doesn’t mean I’m lonely when I’m alone’.
One day my daughter might come up to me and say, “Mom, I’m fat/ugly/whatever.”
And I will take her to the grocery store. I’ll show her all of the different sizes and shapes of her favorite fruits. And I’ll tell her, “Now, what’s more important? The way the fruit looks, or the way the fruit tastes?” And she’ll say, “Well, I guess the way they taste is more important.” And I’ll say, “That’s right. It doesn’t matter what size you are or how you look on the outside, as long as you’re sweet and delicious on the inside. Because you can be the prettiest looking apple in the whole store, but if you’re rotten on the inside then they will just spit you out.”
^ that’s a very good analogy
so remember kids
no matter what you look like on the outside
someone is still going to eat you

BEST. THING. EVER.
Finish My Running Course!
I’m very happy to announce that I finally finish the 3 Weeks to a 30-Minute e-course! I know I’m a wee bit late (I should have finish around Christmas) but I’m always super busy at December (especially Christmas), I re-started running around mid January and begin at day 14 of the 21 day e-course, I finally finish last Thursday. Right now I’m not feeling my best but I plan to start running again this week, I already have my running schedule (I plan to start at week four through eight) for the next four week and I’m super excited! How’s your exercising plan going? I would love to hear your running story!
