I am the proud finisher of the SF Half Marathon. It was the most beautiful run I’ve been on and my miles ran one minute faster (twelves) than I had planned (thirteens.) My husband coached and joined me as my birthday present, (yes, I’m rounding my fourth decade,) and I was listening to another sumptuous novel. Oh my. Thank goodness my emotions caught up with the undeniable blessings. Too often, we dutifully list off our gratitudes detached, like reading a latin prayer-book. And not often enough do our fantasies connect with our realities. Delightful! when they do though.
Best T-shirt ever was on the road.
The runner told me that the quote comes from the Rocky Horror Show. I could barely stop giggling. Just awesome.
That was a random bit of joy I wanted to share!
Pairing our duties with our pleasures brings bank. But today’s self-care tip is something a little to the left – cultivate fantasy and see what it brings to our reality. (This is a brief post but I hope to write more another time too :).)
