Sweating does the body good. Not only does it make you feel better when you feel poorly, I think it helps clear out the what ever toxic chemicals exist that cause negativity. This is the first time in three days I have been outside on a run, without my children. I feel more centered now, and ready to handle some of the challenges that have been put in my way. Whenever I run, something biochemically happens that allows me to focus, and now I’m ready for my day. I don’t get the same feeling running on a treadmill, or running around the block with my kids in tow. I only get this feeling when I’m by myself and it’s me against nature.
He has been gone ten days, and the last two or three have felt like the longest days ever recorded in history. Last night, though, I actually got a good night’s sleep. I feel re-energized, and ready to conquer. Sleep makes all the difference in the world, so does exercise, a good diet, and accomplishing something off my to do list, besides writing in this journal. I hope the days quicken to a creep instead of a slow crawl. I’m getting ready to paint my daughter’s room, and I’m really excited to inject some personality into this house. It’s time to get started.
