There are many things that a run can solve and alleviate. However, there are things you just need to deal with.
For example, a bad day, a class gone crazy, daily stresses, anticipation/anxiousness, just the normal wearing down…you get my drift…are things that a run can help out. And then there are the things that no matter how many times you run and “feel better” about something, the problem does not go away and you have to deal with it. Has this ever happened to you?
Well, I am finding myself in this really tough position. The brief details go as follows: a “one-way” friendship that stresses me beyond imagination. Wow. Writing it out makes me realize what it is doing. The friendship experiences hills and valleys, but it seems to only be on my end. I do not want to go into things in depth beyond that, because I am sure everyone has been in a friendship with someone that took more than it gave. Trust me, I know the compromise that comes with relationships, but I think it is time to let things go their natural course and not let the hand of Kerry try to control much. As a good friend told me once “Everyone in your life is meant to play a certain role. We cannot force people into roles they aren’t meant to assume.” It is time to turn things over to the One who knows how it is supposed to go.
Phew. It has weighed heavily on my mind and was a source of previous frustration that I voiced awhiles back. Have you ever dealt with a friendship that’s run its natural course?
A new leaf has turned in my mind and I feel a bit better. SO, I made many many playlists to accompany me down to Southern California – a nice 7 hour drive! With my habit-breaking of the cellie, I am taking some preventative measures and setting up a GREAT set of playlists to keep me entertained so I do not resort to anything else. I am all packed and I hope I do not forget anything!! I got lots of yummy food to munch on (might have to pack that in the back so I don’t dig in on the road). I am SOO excited. I am going to try to take pictures and such, but I am not good at documenting events through pictures! I may resort to using some other team’s photos. We will see. Okay, I am rambling.
I’m going to TRY to blog – I have wordpress on my phone 😉 But any words of encouragement are much appreciated!
I want to wish my bloggie friends who are running BIG SUR lots of LUCK and have FUN 🙂 See ya in SoCal!
