Do ever have those days where NOTHING seems to go right?
Your boss is on your neck about a deadline, the news you thought might come today didn’t (I will clue you guys in on that soon), you wanted to seriously pull an “office space” with a baseball bat and some rap music on your computer because it won’t let you get your work done, your house is a mess, you are exhausted, you are itching to get your butt out of the office ALL day so you can go on your first run in a week and a half since realizing you have a parasite, and you come home to THIS in your back yard. That isn’t you?? Oh sorry, maybe it is just me then.
It was one of those frustrating days that sucked all the life out of me. All I wanted was a couple glasses of wine and 10 cookies after I found this in my backyard. However, after looking into my puppy’s eyes as I worked on some breathing techniques trying to hold back the tears while holding my broken $350 garmin in my hand (he chewed on the back of the screen and basically ruined the battery hookup), I realized what I really needed was a run.
This run saved me today so much more than any wine or cookies could do. After our little run together (just me and Kai), and I dropped him off and headed back out to finish my hour up. I came back relaxed, and after a good cry in my husbands arms, I actually felt better. I was back to my happy laughing self, AND Kai was back on my good side.
Tomorrow is a new day…
What do you tend to reach for when you are stressed? The cookies? The wine? Your sneakers?
