Running with it...in more ways than one.

More so than ever before...

I've been running with it.

Whether it be in the literal sense...


Or not...

I've been going with the flow, as much as I can, in many areas of my life.

In other words...

Putting less of an expectation upon myself to do and instead...

Just be.
Presently. 
And letting myself savour.
Savour all that surrounds me. 
In all its simplicity.

Choosing to be still.

As you may have noticed...

I've really slowed down on the blogging.

It hasn't been intentional...

It just has been. 

That being said...

I can't say I've stopped writing because...

The writing I've been doing has mostly been in journals or on scrap pieces of paper.

Be it a couple words a day, jotting down daily learnings and/or thoughts of grateFUlness (etc)...

I've still been writing, just not out there, everywhere.

To be honest...

I've really been savouring those moments whereby I've been grabbing my pen and letting the ink write out the words I feel, in the moment, as opposed to having my fingers hit the keyboard.

But, while I type this post...

I can appreciate my fingers doing the typing too. (It gives my hand a break) :P

Plus...

I'd be lying if I said that...

I didn't enjoy typing, because I do. :)

But now, as I tie in this thought to the literal meaning of my blog title today...

I've been letting my feet do the leading when it comes to running.

I can't run all day.
But I do enjoying running whenever I can :)

If anything...

My intentions whenever I head out is not to...

Run at a certain pace, distance or even run on a schedule (because it's not always about performing!) but instead...

Running with it and just allowing myself to go. (And thankFUlly, without pain or injury!)


I mean...

So often I feel like we plan out every aspect of our lives (disclaimer: necessary the best of times) that...

Practicing the art of letting go and just going with the flow...

Is really good for our well-being.

And while on the run...

It's good for both our mental and physical selves.

Wouldn't you agree?

It allows us to ride it out and...
Enjoy the moment; the run...with every stride we take.

**

No doubt (back to life now)...

We all need a sense of fluidity in our lives and...

To allow for things to fall as they may.

And trust me...

I get that we all have responsibilities...

But...

For the sake of discussion...

I just think it's important to recognize that we need to relax.

Slow ourselves down.

Be present and...

Let ourselves feel the wind blowing (trusting that there's a gust)...

Rather than bolting straight through it all without taking the time to appreciate the little things because we're too busy doing and crossing things off our list.

Yes?

Anyway...

Just a few thought today, as I'm running with it, with my words.


*This post was written a few weeks ago and, as I re-read it last night, it came to me as a good reminder since I found myself rushing to get things done, interestingly enough. Timing is everything so I felt the need to share it today hehe*
