Run Find Your Happy Pace

finding my happy pace in running and life

On the Move (almost) Part 1 – Motivational Monday

on June 15, 2015

Motivational Monday:  God is the same today, tomorrow and always

Hebrews 13:8 New International Version (NIV)

8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

No matter what is going on in your life, God never changes.  Our lives change, our circumstances change and we let life distract us from Him but he never takes His eyes off of us.  Never.

What’s up with Finding My Happy Pace in running?   Well to be honest its been at a complete standstill but NOT BY CHOICE!!  Just about 3 weeks ago I had to have a minor procedure, I’m fine, no worries, but it did require stitches.  Stitches wouldn’t have been a biggie except they are on the side of my knee so the Doc said no running.  “OK I’ll just walk….a lot” I said.  “Oh no.  No walking for exercise either.” said Doc.  WHAT?!?!  The only good thing about no running or walking was the timing.

What’s up with Finding My Happy Pace in life?  We (my family) are getting ready for a big move. Moving in general is no fun, moving across the country, well that adds a whole new level of “fun”.  So no running meant more time for me to obsess over how much stuff we have and how much we don’t need.

Since we were fully aware of the upcoming move.  I have been trying to declutter the house since January 1 of this year.  My family on the other hand has not been too keen on the house de-cluttering process, its pretty much been a one woman show.  But I do feel like I made some good progress.  I even bought a book about de-cluttering, hahaha, go ahead and laugh (my hubby did)  I think his words were like “Sooooo, you bought a book about how to de-clutter?  Doesn’t that book actually add to the clutter in the house?”  Turd 😉 ( I say that lovingly, really)  I actually liked the book a lot and related to a lot it was saying.  The book was Clutter Free by Kathi Lipp by the way, in case your interested.**  But I digress.  De-cluttering has been an awesome freeing feeling.  We still have a lot to go but its been a good start, for me anyway.

And now June has snuck up on us all.  This past week the packers have come and packed all our belongings (the amount of boxes is still unreal #firstworldproblems) , the truck came yesterday and the house is pretty much cleared out.  We shall be living on blow up beds and sleeping bags for the next week, I think its kind of neat and so far no complaints from the peanut gallery.  I am hoping to declutter more on the backend of the move.

As far as my future running:  My stitches finally come out Monday wahoo!  My hope is to get a few runs in this week since the packing is all done.  I’m going to miss these routes I have mapped out the past 5 years.  You know the routes that you can run by feel anything from a mile to 10 but know exactly when to turn around.  And the shady routes you stick to on a hot summer day. Sigh.  I will miss you.  But I am also ready for some new and challenging running and life adventures!   Keep an eye out for all new adventures!

 

** I have no affiliation with Kathy Lipp or Clutter Free but I really did enjoy it.

 

 


Would love to hear from you!
