Not trying to be the modern day Forrest Gump, I decided life is more like running than it is a box of chocolates this morning….
Life is like running. The harder you work, the more you get out of it.
Life is like running. Just when you think you can’t do it anymore, a breeze arrives, you see the horizon and get a second wind of energy.
Life is like running. Some days have steeper hills than others, this just means you appreciate the view from the top even more.
Life is like running. Some people are sprinters, some are joggers; each is no better than the other, so never compare yourself.
Life is like running. If you continue on the same track you’ll get bored. Mix it up a little and get out of your comfort zone to see results.
Life is like running. Some people’s journeys are shorter. This doesn’t make them any less valuable.
Life is like running. Everyone trips at some point. It’s how you recover that’s most important. Laughing it off makes the run home easier than sulking and feeling foolish.
Life is like running. If you push yourself and leave nothing on the table you’ll feel better at the end and be pleased with your efforts as opposed to always wondering if you could have done better.
Life is like running. Sometimes it’s nice to be alone but it can be lots of fun to run with others for motivation or social reasons. Be sure to do both every now and then.
Life is like running. Be sure to watch where you’re going, or you’ll run into a tree. Trust me. I speak from experience. This is especially detrimental if you’re running with a pram!
