:::Run thru December:::
I am committed to run at least 1 mile each day this month. I have come a long way in my running game this year and although I am no where near where I hoped I would be, I have learned a couple things about myself. I have always been the person who felt like I needed to run X amount of miles in X amount of time to consider myself a real runner. I was constantly setting myself up for failure because the goal I was setting for myself just was not realistic. I finally slowed down to a comfortable pace and all of a sudden running no longer felt like a chore that I hated to do. I still struggle with the first 1/2 mile or so but I am proud to say that I am finally able to push myself through the tough moments and keep on goin'.
My two loves have birthdays this month and I want to celebrate them well. This year this looks like snowflakes and Elsa, hot chocolate and blue cake for one and dinner out and special treats for the other.
:::Slow Down and Enjoy:::
I don't want to be out in the frenzy of shopping and traffic late into December. I don't want to be unorganized and unprepared. I want to snuggle up with my family and drink hot chocolate, sit by our Christmas tree, watch movies and read books. I want to celebrate Advent and prepare our hearts for Christmas. I want to watch my sweet girl delight in the beauty of this season. Are you ready to join me?
