I had a lovely run tonight and crunched some leaves. I really think I needed to get out there and crunch some bark and leaves to feel better. Do you know what I mean? (I explain my love of crunching leaves in my It’s all about me section).
It wasn’t a long run but it was enough. I also had these kangaroos join me so what more could I ask for?
I’ve been feeling tired lately and even wrote a list of things that I’m tired of – before I share my list I will point out that I’m feeling much better now so there’s no need to worry about me!
I’m tired of trying to be good with what I eat and how I exercise with no noticeable return.
I’m tired of going to work each day and doing the same thing of trying to be flexible, supportive and inclusive but not getting much back from some people (I must say that my immediate staff are amazing and I’d be lost without them).
I’m tired of trying to get back into running the way I was before my calf injury – it’s hard work starting again.
I’m tired of trying to keep up with everything and everyone.
I’m tired of hearing about stupid celebrities in the news and what they name their child and not hearing enough about real people. The ones who are doing things to make the world a better place by inventing things, research, medical breakthroughs, teachers, nurses – these should be the real news makers.
Am I simply burnt out, in need of a break? Is it just the end of the year, the weather, my 55th birthday coming up on the weekend or is it just me?
Maybe I just needed to go for a run tonight and step on every crunchy leaf and piece of bark to make me feel better.
Whatever it was I feel more like myself after a good talking to, a run, some crunchy leaves and this outlook in my back paddock. How lucky am I?
Thanks for listening!
