For me, sometimes it’s really about turning my mind off. That’s why meditation is so powerful, I guess. Nothing is more taxing and dispiriting for me than to relive a conflict, an argument, an unpleasant situation, in my head over and over and over again. There’s more to life than being right or getting even - this is something I need to strive to understand and embrace. Sometimes, I just need to let things be.
It’s so damn hard though.
On a happier note, after having anticipated for it for the past half a year and really imagined doing it for the whole of my college life, I finally ran and finished my first 10K! The deep sense of accomplishment that follows me after the run will forever be a reminder of what my goals are and how important it is to stay committed.
