Running: My medicine

Whenever I feel like I need to encourage myself, be it to achieve something or even to boost my morale, I go out and run.

I don’t run for competition or any other reason most of the times, but I learned that after every run I am so energetic: full of fire and I can do anything. I am always positive about things and that on its own encourages me to go beyond areas that I never thought I will go to and break the barriers that sometimes we fear to visit.

Running is the best medicine I believe God has blessed me with because during this time I achieve a lot. Planning is one of them because this is when I organize my day, I mean anything. I am an early riser by nature so during the early hours of the day I am 110% active, oozing with energy and overflowing with zeal. With time I have learned to use it for my best. I run ! What I have also learned and loved is that ideas come flogging in my mind as I am running. This is the time I connect with myself: I connect with self; I become aware of things and I act.

Writing my journal, reading and playing games that activates my mind are other activities that I do when I do not run. But in essence they all involve physical action (although mild), but I can’t keep up with just sleeping.

I am encouraging you as readers that every human has that thing that is called passion. There is something that we feel sane, accomplished or healed when we do them. It is that something that until you do it you don’t feel ok. I am glad I know and have found my medicine. This is what keeps me away from the doctor.

Hope you are inspired as you read and your day today will be filled with more energy, ideas, excitement and above all blessings. You are unstoppable and nothing will pull you down after reading this article.

Happy Monday

With love ❤️

A realist, always fond of things that are real and matters. The lover of writing and a staunch reader, growing up with a burning passion of writing. I always have a pen a pad with me, life is a story that I never want to miss writing about. It always fascinates me when we are categorized as introverts and extroverts because that on its own is the reason behind every personality. I grew up being referred to as an “introvert” and I later understood the personality behind it: quite, reserved, peaceful, creative mind & thinking; antisocial and very analytical. Being in that space I always knew that as a writer or reader you cannot do that in a noisy or busy place; you need a quite and peaceful environment. It is interesting how I found myself being able to fit all that I love doing in this space that I find myself loving because I fit so perfectly (besides the stereotypes, it is the truth): they all fit, my list is endless but what I know for sure is that “I am born an artist” I am married to my loving and supportive husband for 23 years, Collen and we are blessed with four children; three adult boys; all grown ups and the youngest teen daughter who is still with us and in high school. I am University graduate with a B.A degree in Social Science (majored in Psychology, Sociology and Anthropology), graduated with MBA in Sports in 2011. Worked for more 13 years until 2009 when we began our diplomatic life as a family. What I am grateful for is that there is always a bigger plan and things happen for a reason. Although mostly often, we do not have answers; all that matters is that we share those experiences and life lessons to inspire and lift others up. This is my passion and I am thrilled by challenges; good or bad and my mind likes solving mysteries that I believe are real; sometimes hidden and not spoken about. My favorite authors Danielle Steel and Agatha Christie always challenges my thinking and approach in life. I began reading their books from 14 years and I am still their fan reader. They share their stories in writing and as someone who likes sharing, I quickly connected with them My life is all about the real world: family, marriage, relationships, health, children, parenting, spirituality, cooking, leisure, travel, reading, writing, engaging, connecting, encouraging......I love sharing Sharing is golden
