Iâ€™m spending my Friday night at my favorite place: on my couch. I was supposed to go ninja with my coworkers, but doing nothing sounded far more appealing tonight, and Iâ€™m not sure the last time I did this, as the past few weeks have been pretty busy.
As someone whose mental health has been a rollercoaster over the past year or so, Iâ€™m so thankful to be feeling so at peace lately.
My momâ€™s in remission.
I recently got promoted at work.
I got to work out the other day with one of my childhood athletic idols. More on that soon, but for now, hereâ€™s the solid braid game I had going on:
(I am SO glad I am getting my hair done tomorrow.)
Iâ€™ve spent two of the last four weekends at the beach with my friends.Â
Iâ€™m going to Vancouver in two weeks to run the SeaWheeze Half.
I realized what a good place I was in today when I heard about the possibility of news that would have crushed me a few months ago, but now I just see as kind of sucky.Â
Iâ€™ve always said I donâ€™t see running as therapy, though I do see it as therapeutic â€” and getting back into regular running again has felt amazing mentally in a way no other workout ever will for me.
I feel re-energized to start writing/creating more again.
Iâ€™m going to two fun/interesting events next week I wanted to share:
– Outdoor spin with Cyc Fitness. Why not? :)Â
– Uplift has started a series called â€œStrong Women Uplift Each Otherâ€ and next week, theyâ€™re discussing mental health. I love what Uplift stands for, and that theyâ€™re tackling tough issues like this that affect women.
But for now, Iâ€™m getting into bed with a good book.Â What are you reading/what podcasts are you listening to right now? And what brings you contentment?Â
