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:

I think patience is so underrated. It can be tough to practice, but where would we be if we lacked it at all? Patience is like self-confidence, it's not something we attain and once we attain it we always have it. It's something that I find myself constantly working on. Once I learn to have patience for one event in my life, another event comes along and I begin that whole process over again, albeit a lot stronger, and taking with me lessons learned. Sometimes I feel so impatient that I can't help but get frustrated at whatever perceived slow pace my path is taking, weather it's practicing my BMX skills, trying to get faster or farther with my running, job searching, getting through college, or whatever else life throws my way. 

It's always good to have friends who remind us to be patient, and I feel really lucky to have them remind me of this virtue, especially with everything changing recently. Receiving that text telling me to be patient and to keep working hard can sometimes change my outlook on a subject. I couldn't agree more on that subject, b.t.w. When you feel yourself getting frustrated and impatient just remember that good things take time. You might not get something accomplished in the short term, but patience in the long term is so rewarding!
