One Little Word | Embrace [who I am]
One little word can have a big impact on your life. A journey shared.
A glimpse of One Little Word 2011. August.
August turned out to be the month that put my OLW progress to the test. Embracing who I am was challenged by life not working out according to my plans. Training schedule interruptions. The busyness of back to school. Returning to school routines.
I found that I easily slipped back into the [bad] habit of wanting things to be perfect and feeling frustrated when they weren't. It was too much imperfection at one time. But, this time, there was a difference. This time I realized what I was doing to myself AND I made a conscious effort to stop the irrational thinking. What seemed to help the most was when I was being hard on myself I tried to remember how I feel after a workout or run. Confident. Strong. Happily exhausted. At peace. Remember I'm the same person in this picture whether I'm running/working out or not.
So, relax, put your feet up and visit the blog hop blogs for a glimpse of the journeys of One Little Word 2011.
