Day 224: Running and the Crocus Flowers

I am so inspired by other people.

Jeff went for a four mile run today. I tried to get out of it. I cleaned instead. I’m good at cleaning and decluttering and procrastinating, yet I didn’t feel good about choosing not to go for a run with him, especially since I had the time.

I called Joseine instead. She told me about her long walk with her sister and how she wasn’t going to go walking today, but her sister talked her into it. She felt so happy afterwards and was glad she went.

Inspired? Yes.

But I found more excuses, I mean piles of laundry to wash and sort and fold, and papers to organize, and two errands to run. And felt the guilt.

At 2:20 pm, my house was really decluttered, and I finally chose to run, before picking up the kids from school. Did I tell you I like to procrastinate until the very last minute?

I just have to say, there has never been a day when I put on my running shoes and actually got out the door and regretted it. So why is it so hard to clear my head and actually get my butt moving? I don’t understand why I procrastinate so much. And I’d think I’d learn by now to just get it over with(I mean enjoy it) first thing in the morning. Isn’t it weird how you know something or how to do something, but the act of doing is much harder than the act of knowing?? Argh… One of those yin and yang things right? Tell me you do this too… Any tricks you practice?

Besides the joy of running 3+ miles, I also got to enjoy seeing these colorful and bright crocus flowers. Aren’t they just gorgeous? I’ve never noticed them before. The crocus is a light and airy flower that is bright and fun. It represents cheerfulness because of its color and texture. Just look at the lines on the petals? And these pictures are taken with my old iPhone!

Do you feel cheerful now? I do. :-). Namaste.

  1. Beautiful flowers! Natasha and I no more drive to school, she rides her scooter while I run. I have to carry the scooter back with me but that’s just fine.
