THE Jog Blog – 65

 

JOGGING has been a profound way of managing STRESS, ANXIETY and DEPRESSION in my life. It allows me to tap into my INSTINCT and recognize, understand and process any NEGATIVE FEELINGS I encounter. Jogging helps me filter out the NEGATIVE CHATTER and tap into the POSITIVE, CREATIVE and POWERFUL ENERGY of INSTINCT and PURPOSE.

Jogging gives me CLARITY.

JOGGING SAVED MY LIFE.

So why do I care whether I get a finishers medal when I enter events? I get so much out of jogging; that should be enough.

Finisher medals prove when I start something, I FINISH.

This is extremely important to me. In my past, I started things and then didn’t have the courage, will or strength to follow through. This intensified the BELIEF I wasn’t worthy or I was stupid, lazy or not good enough.

The finisher medals represent the HARD WORK, COMMITMENT, SACRIFICES and INNER STRENGTH it takes to reach a GOAL.

It proves to me that I am worthy of the TIME, DEDICATION, and SELF CARE it takes to complete the training and the actual event.

It reminds me that I AM NOT A QUITTER.

I do not allow negativity, dream stealers or past belief systems to stop me.

I may still come across those things but I push FORWARD and I EXCEL.

I do not live passively, I LIVE WITH PURPOSE.

The medal is proof of everything that went into it and everything I get out of it. The medal celebrates the CHOICES made and the journey taken. When I look at my medals, I know I can achieve other goals and reach even greater heights. 

I hope you have a fantastic weekend full of laughter, love and joy.  I am thrilled to be joining some family friends in the Vancouver Sun Run on Sunday and look forward to creating some wonderful memories with them.

See you on Tuesday!

With a smile,

Tina
