RUN & RID-erful Wednesday

It's important to take stock in life's everyday blessings. Sometimes I have so much going on that focusing on the small things make me smile, as well as force me to live in the moment and not take things for granted. My goal is to set aside one day a week to discuss a favorite quote that currently resonates with me when it comes to running, BMX, or just life in general.

This week's thoughts include:

HARD WORK


This might sound weird to you, but when I was little I was afraid to show people that I was trying hard to accomplish my goals, especially in sports. Somehow I thought that if it looked like I was having a hard time (e.g. "trying hard") doing something, even if I accomplished it, that it would make me look weak. I was good at things, but I was also only confident in doing them if it looked like I could breeze right through it. I'm not sure why I thought this way, because now when I try my hardest or I see others trying their hardest to accomplish something I see it as strong and inspirational. I think putting yourself out there and trying hard actually takes a lot of guts, and being a shy kid maybe it took awhile to develop that sense of security. Without our dreams we have little to work hard for, so never let anyone tell you your dream is silly. Keep dreaming, and never be afraid to work hard (or to let others see how hard your working). Never give up!
