Run. Meditate. Get back to Joy.

Over the past year, when life events caused my spirits to plummet, I chose to run.  

Running is an escape; it provides contemplative time, creating the meditative space I find so difficult to grasp sitting cross-legged in a quiet room.  Running brings me out of my head-space and into my body.  I feel things rather than simply think about them.  In this space, I find it easier to notice and hear the intuitive response – that small nudge, the gut reaction.  And it helps me find my way back to joy.

Each sunrise brings a new day, and the opportunity to begin with joy.

Early tomorrow morning, I’ll shoe up, go outside, and run before work.  
Because it makes me happy.  🙂

with joy in running,
~Alaina
