I’ve Got Soul but I’m Not a Soldier (A Little Pep Talk)

Image-1 (3)Hey everybody. Have a really good weekend, and just know that you can do anything. Today I went “running.” Well, in intervals, which is how you train for a 5k. My whole body felt strange and painful afterwards, but I still did it! I think the trick is to have a really good soundtrack, one that motivates you and makes you want to sprint instead of just jog. I’m hoping I can go out and get some proper running shoes soon, because hiking shoes are not gonna do the trick, nor are converse.

If you’re going through a tough time, or are feeling stuck, either in your job, or in life, or creatively, or whatever, it’s ok. Try to treat yourself to a little adventure. In the meantime, here’s my running playlist from this morning. I ran to “Take a Bow” with gusto (shit, that song gets me so pumped), and sprinted out the last chorus of “All These Things That I’ve Done” and almost started crying while listening to it? Because I’m proud of myself for going 100% on trying to make positive changes in my life? Let’s go with that. Anyway. Go 100% in whatever you’re doing! Doesn’t matter what it is. EXCEPT FOR MURDER. DON’T MURDER.
