Where you look at your life and think "wow, this isn't what I ordered." I never thought at 35 I'd be married, but not allowed to have a baby. Never thought I'd be married to a youth pastor. One of the hardest jobs in the entire world. I have to watch him tirelessy give of himself and yet all parents do is complain. Teenagers are teenagers and you get stabbed in the back, when you just think you're helping.
You feel alone. There's no one to call and go have a drink with. What happened to the life I thought I would be living??
In the past, I would've drowned this self pity in a gallon of ice cream. But not anymore!
I decided to go to spin class. There's just something about being in a dark room, working so hard you wonder if you'll make it, Skillet blaring, and sweat mixing with your tears- that makes life seem a little more bearable.
I've gotta say I felt so much better. If I had drowned my sorrows in ice cream, I would've felt even worse. That is one of the many reasons I love to exercise. It clears my head and helps me see things in a different light. It's good for the soul!
Let's move on to happy things now, shall we?
Tomorrow I'll be running 16 miles AND I'm going to see Wesley Korir at a local running store. He's the winner of the 2012 Boston Marathon and is a Louisville, KY native! I'm SO excited!
Also, go check out Rachel's blog, I am the guest blogger today!
Have a fabulous weekend!!
