Thoughts on a Monday night...

I have had a hectic last few days.
Work, yoga, seeing my aunt and remembering Father's Day. I sent out my cards, late, and feel bad about it, but know that it will be a nice surprise for my dad and Brian's dad. Each of them have inspired me lately and I know I should write about it, and will, just not tonight.
I am scatter-brained. I have ample thank you cards to write, in addition to upcoming birthday cards and my card of the week to a friend that needs a little sunshine in his life. Ironically, I woke up and thought of him this morning. Immediately, the word HEAL flashed across my mind and I feel that a turnaround is happening or at least, right around the corner. I decided last week that I would send him some good thoughts, every week, to let him know that he isn't alone and that there is goodness in the world. I think sometimes, we get caught up in the negative crap and cannot find our way out of this abyss.
I believe that our thoughts inspire our actions which inspire opportunities. I mean, for instance, I wanted to run. I tried on my own and failed. I joined TNT and now I meet runners all the time. I enjoy it and I look forward to it. In the past, I hated running and was uncomfortable thinking about running with other people. I didn't want to hold them up and so I continued to do it on my own, poorly, or not at all. I mean, there is always tomorrow, right?
WRONG.
I think we should live each day fully, in the way that is best for you. You don't know what tomorrow holds or what you are missing out on by thinking, tomorrow, I will take up running or tomorrow I will find a better job or next year, I will travel to Spain. Why not do it today?
I planned my trip abroad 2 years in June. Wow, I cannot believe that it has been that long. I miss traveling, but the point is that I wanted to do it and I did. Being positive is the way.
So, yes, I am sending vibes to a friend that needs it.
I am getting up, super early, to go running with Lindsay. I cannot wait and after a day like today, I know that early morning running is the only way to go. Until later....
