I had one of those perspective altering conversations yesterday. I made an offhand remark to a friend about how I really didn’t want to run. She replied along the lines of ‘but you actually do’.
Yes, actually I do want to run. Who cares if I don’t run?
That’s the list right there. No one is making me do this. I’m not accountable to anyone else when it comes to exercise. So actually, if I don’t want to run, I can leave my butt parked on the couch.
Even when a run doesn’t meet my expectations, it’s still an ‘I get to’ not an ‘I have to’.
So, thanks Val. I needed that reminder.
