I am supposed to be running a five mile race right now. Obviously this didn’t happen 😦 When I woke up this morning, it was thundering, pouring, and we saw streaks of lightning – definitely a no go. While we were bummed, there was really nothing we could do to prevent the weather! So we decided to head out for breakfast (I ordered an un-pictured egg white veggie frittata) which was delicious. Plans for the day include yoga and and nails — the perfect Sunday.
I wanted to take a second to write about guilt. My friend Rebecca and I were supposed to run the race this morning, and when I discovered we really couldn’t run it, I feel oddly ‘okay’ about it. In the past, I would have felt totally guilty and probably would have forced my way there somehow, even in knowing how bad the weather was. I have been able to come into a place where I kind of shrug my shoulders and think, ‘well, okay, now what?’. This is a huge difference for me. Do I feel guilty sometimes about eating one too many treats? Or having one too many glasses of wine? Sure do. But can I get over it much quicker? Sure can.
While not being able to run today due to bad weather probably seems like nothin’ big to most people, others have a really difficult time adjusting and changing his/her plans. I am really proud to say that I am in a place where I don’t feel a slave to guilt or burdened by guilt anymore. It is the absolute worst ‘friend’ in the world.
I know this post is kind of random, but is all has to do with being able to let yourself live — and live the way you want to. It’s a gray and rainy Sunday, and what better way than to start with a wonderful breakfast followed by yoga and nails? Why would I have ever felt guilty about this in the past? I’m not so sure when or how I changed. But all I know is that I’m proud to be where I am.
Have a wonderful Sunday 🙂 !
