Yesterday (30th January 2015), I posted on Facebook that I was a little saddened that as an ultra marathoner I had only managed to go out and walk 1.89 miles in the morning. I have recently been injured with Plantar Fasciitis and as I use running as my medicine for a range of mental health problems it’s been driving me crazy. So from lunch I decided that I would have a little personal me time doing some soul searching and reconnecting back with who I am. I felt I needed to remind myself that medicine isn’t always available on a physical level but I most likely have all that I need in my mind.
Of course these lessons I learned were supposed to be personal but if anyone can take anything from them then it is worth the time to share the information with you. In case you struggle reading the images I have written underneath each one what is written on each page.
“Lessons Learned 30th January 2015.” – ScottyRunner
“To be appreciated for who I am and not what I have. To be grateful for who I am and not what I have.” – ScottyRunner
“The things that money can’t buy are the things that are the most special and important.” – ScottyRunner
“I’m nearly 30 with no career, no education and hardly any money. Am I happy? Yes. Why? because I do not abide by the norms. I am true to who I am 100%. This has safely brought me to where I am today. If others do not value this simple widowm… They
are not worthy of my time have much to learn.” – ScottyRunner
“Who am I? Most people can not describe who they are, but they can feel and sense who they are. That alone is special. – No descriptions required.” – ScottyRunner
“Why I run? a physical, mental and spiritual journey. The only medicine required to
hopefully realising where I am going… and where am I going? – I hope to never find out.” – ScottyRunner
“It’s funny you know. I am bi-polar, and I just remembered that I am libran.” – ScottyRunner
“Some of the things that I attach myself to who I am and represent with PRIDE. Freedom, Veganism, Vegan Runners, Running, Green Party(UK), Peace, Friends of the Earth and 100s more.” – ScottyRunner
“I ask each and every one of you
think create a world without money. What an amazing world for humans and our other living friends (animals), and what a precious gift to be left long after us to Mother Earth.” – Scotty Runner
“Religion – I do not know what is and what is not. If religion brings hope then that alone is worth my, and the worlds attention.” -ScottyRunner
“It doesn’t matter where I am going, so long as I am truthful to who I am each step of the way.” – ScottyRunner
“The secret of happiness? How may I help?.” – ScottyRunner
“Homework. Do not forget the lessons in which you learn. Live them, breath them, share them. Make them become a part of who you are. In doing so you will enrich the lesson, you will advance the lesson, you will pass them onto others.” – ScottyRunner
“If these lessons have failed then come back again tomorrow. Xoxo” – ScottyRunner
And just on a final note;
“we get so wrapped up in how we are told to live our lives. I am sorry. I have failed you all, but I will not hide who I am anymore. My reason for existance is to spread Joy, Happiness, Peace and Love to everybody (and every animal) that shall ever cross or walk my paths. Be truthful to who you are and not who you are told to be. I mean it when I say I love each and every one of you, and everything will be ok.” -ScottyRunner
All in all a very productive day. I was very tired at the end of my thinking session and my mind and body exhausted. Though I found enough energy within me to walk 6 miles in the night to meet my husband outside of his work place to give him the message that I love him.
Thank you for reading.
