Someday I won’t be able to run off steam, today is NOT that day!
With 4 kids all in some stage of puberty right now and me for their mother emotions are running especially hot in our house lately; we pretty much hit the whole gamut of emotions several times a day every day haha 😛 Tonight we hit a peak of frustration and anger, so Annie and I laced up and went for a run. My son Brady has always been great about running off negative emotions and I love that his sister is following in his footsteps. We have discovered that this is one of the best and healthiest ways for us to bring ourselves back to a place of peace and happiness. We each ran hard on our own and then ended up walking together and talking which resulted in one of the deepest bonding moments that we’ve ever shared. I am grateful for our healthy bodies that are able to run, that we were able to transform negative feelings into positive ones, for our beautiful moment of bonding and for the calories that I burned! Today was a victory! (This blurry pic was the best that I could do because I was still gasping for air haha)
