put on some nikes,
until your legs feel like lead
until there's sweat dripping into your eyes
and your lungs are begging your mind to stop
and if only for a few moments... instead of thinking about the hurt at hand, your mind might forget
and instead turn to;
one foot, in front,
of the other
one foot, in front, of the other, and don't stop
just keep running
you may not be in control of all the things in your life;
but you are most certainly in control of your choice
one foot, in front, of the other.
|just do it|
ps. a great big THANK YOU to mother nature who provided the sweet smell of sappy buds as i was running (have i ever mentioned how much i love spring?), a great big THANK YOU to i tunes for providing my two new songs that i totally splurged on (i decided i deserved it); i pushed repeat over and over, a great big THANK YOU to my amazing family in Saskatchewan who distracted me all weekend & reminded me how blessed I am, and... last but never least... the biggest THANK YOU to my Father in Heaven for blessing me with everything that I have.

pps. the second thing that you should do after life throws a lemon at your head is to write four things that you are so thankful for.
