Good morning and a happy belated mothers day to you!
Yesterday was Mothers day and since I don’t know anyone personally who reads my post, I would like to say happy mothers day to you! Being a mother is quite possibly the hardest job EVER. An I mean there is no way to know that before you become a mother. It seems hard but lots of things seem hard. But being responsible for another human or 2 or 3 or 4 is crazy. Literally everything is on your shoulders for I don’t know 18 plus years and even after that they grow up and then just blame you for any flaws that they have.
My day was pretty ideal.
- Morning run (and my feet don’t hurt anymore! thank you cortisone shot!)
- Brunch with the ladies!
- Hanging out at the bike park and watching my family roll around
- Pulled pork burritos
- A cocktail, and wait for it, another cocktail!
On my way home from brunch, I got to thinking. I really like who I am. It was just like that, a sign in the road, I didn’t know it was coming. I also ran a red light at that time so you know, it was a pretty big sign.
I’ve been doing this trail race series and found out I was 5th place in my age group. What? That blew my mind. I’m awesome and wasn’t even trying. I also haven’t been running lots of long miles and tried to do it the other day and was like, what? I ran 30 miles? Nice work self.
Life is pretty great when you get out of your head and enjoy what is around you. I read a sign awhile ago that has stayed with me. “Let that shit go!”
Maybe its just the amazing weather, I don’t know. But life seems pretty good right now.
I know I was a pretty rotten teenager some times and gave my parents a run for their sanity. But I came out on the other side of the proverbial fire okay and ready and willing to make it.
I owe a lot of who I am today to you Mom. You did a great job. I love you. Happy mothers day. You are the best.
