Barefoot Running: Do What You Love, Love What You Do

12 Apr
My favorite new blog for the week, Barefoot Running, can be found at http://barefoot-monologues.com/
In one of her posts the author cites this quote “You can do anything, if you don’t put your mind to it.” I read that and was immediately hooked on her writing.  That quote is very true.  Sometimes when you over think things you get so caught up in the details you forget why you started in the first place, you begin to see the obstacles.  Pick something your passionate about and do it because you enjoy it.  No pressure, no end marker, nobody telling you that you haven’t been successful doing it unless you achieve xyz.
My running journey has been a lot like that, no pressure, I’ll just do it.  I didn’t think to myself when I started, “I’m going to win this race.”  I just ran and gave it my best, low and behold in doing that, my best eventually had me winning, something I had never thought even possible when I started. There are goals I’ve thrown my heart into, become obsessed with, only to see them never come to fruition.  My perspective has become not to think too much about things, and to do them out of love.  To resolve that even if I stay in last place, I’m okay there, because I am having fun.  Allowing myself that flexibility frees me.  In the end, do what you LOVE, LOVE what you do!

    I agree, it becomes a lifstyle instead of a I have too. It’s easier to be consistent and just enjoy. All of a sudden you’ve met your goal without all the stress. I love barefoot monologues too.
