Well, I am feeling surprising free and relieved on day two of my running break. Took a couple of nice walks yesterday, but didn't run a step. I am at peace with this break. I really am. I am already starting to see the little joys of life that I had been missing when I was so focused on running - whether I acquiescent the point or not, I was. Whether or not she realizes it, my mom's calming words as we spoke yesterday over the phone for mother's day, were ever so timely and of relief. Mom's are nurturers and comforters and though they may say the very things we are thinking or have been told by others, the simply fact that they are our mom, makes their statements evermore veritable and true. Anyways, it was good for me to recognize, even as a 23 year old, independent, young man, that my mom is still my mom and her words and advice will always be transformative, calming and timely. Well, life is good. Nice to know that I am not running today - no worries about the weather, when I will go, whatever. Peace. Anyways, this is a good time for me to focus on those things that I have been narrowly neglecting - my faith, my friends, and all that stuff. Wishing you all the best. Brian.
