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 or theme that currently resonates with me when it comes to running, BMX or just life in general.

This week's thoughts include:

LIVE YOUR LIFE FOR YOU😊

(WAAAY EASIER SAID THAN DONE, RIGHT?!)

I don't know about you, but I can be a worrier. When I was a kid I'd worry about anything and everything, weather it was something that deviated from my sense of normalcy or someone who didn't like me for whatever reason. Teenage mean girls can be a tricky thing to navigate in middle and high school, and in some cases, the BMX track. The more I grew and experienced things the less I stopped worrying about what people thought and the more I let go of any idea that I should live up to someone else's expectations. Having that life experience allows us to put things into perspective.

You might agree or disagree with the following statement, but here's what I've come up with:

Caring so much about how you're viewed by others, or if someone likes you, ultimately gets you nowhere besides forcing you to live a life for others instead of yourself. 

Live your life for you. You can't please everybody, and it's useless to try. The right people will be there for you. Of course I also mean you should care about the people around you, but don't live your life to please them. Everyone has different paths to travel, so respect their journey, and if you don't get that same respect from them then move the heck on.
