The runs get longer, the pace gets faster, the shorts get shorter, the ice baths get colder, the hills get steeper, and you get better.
Eat food from farmers markets.
Drink good tea each morning.
Read books that make you feel.
Paint, even if you’re awful.
Write, even when you have nothing to say.
Sit in the fresh air outside.
Go on hikes.
Swim in lakes and wade in streams.
Sleep as long as you need.
Work hard at what you love.
Work hard at what you hate.

- Always take pictures of the sky when it’s pretty, it probably won’t ever look like that again.
- Wear that skirt you like, even if you’re mom says it’s too short.
- Take off the dark eyeliner and nail polish once in a while, you’ll feel lighter.
- Chop off your hair if you want, it will grow back eventually.
- Count the freckles on your arms and draw lines between them, your skin is like the night shy.
- Sleep under six blankets with the fan on high in the middle of the winter, the sound is soothing.
- Tell that boy to stop touching your thigh, even if it is flattering.
- Say thank you and flash a smile when you’re sister says that you’re outfit is ugly.
- Raise your hand when you know the answer, even if the class is all upperclassmen.
- Read that book again, you’ll notice something you didn’t the first time.
- Don’t drink too much caffeine, you’ll get the jitters and bomb your math test.
- Wear pencils behind your ears, it’s convenient.
- Try to talk to people, it won’t kill you.

- It’s ok to feel happy, don’t let other peoples sadness make you feel bad.
You know, a lot of us freak out and get really disappointed in ourselves when we get off track for a while. But I think that sometimes this is a good thing because when we get off track and we feel a difference in our body from eating cruddy foods and not working out it reminds us why we want to be healthy: it feels better. I feel the best motivation after a break because I’m rested and ready to get back to working hard. After a few days of junk, drinks, and being sluggish, I crave my normal routine and just want to get back into the swing of things. There’s nothing wrong with deviating from your path for a little while as long as you don’t let it affect you in a negative way. Allow it to recharge you not get down on yourself.
Me talking about my current running situation.
I just got the back cut so that now my hair is all one length! Except for my bangs are a liiitttttle longer than the back because I like it that way :) no more mullet for me!
About to get my hair cut and I’m super scared they’re going to mess it up. It’s just hair and it’s been waaaaay shorter so it can’t be bad.P.s. My haircut turned out really nice :)
