This Monday....

I think it's okay when its "One of those days" and you just want to crawl in a little hole till the world feels safe again. As long as you know you can't stay in there too long and you realize eventually there is light at the end, then hiding out to catch your breath is okay...for this Monday.
It's also okay to take off your slippers and stay bare foot even when you should probably have on some run shoes or work shoes. And it's always okay when there are little feet wanting you to put yours next to theirs...because in this life you might only be one person but to them you are EVERYTHING.
And when things really get you boggled you can kick as hard as you want.... just remember that sometimes all that kicking only makes everything get more crazy, but it does feel good and sometimes (like in the ocean) makes pretty bubbles...
Keep looking up...someday all the craziness will be understood and make perfect sense.
This Monday totally is teaching me that sometimes we just have to let the legs dangle in the deep and cross our fingers a shark won't bite them off...maybe that's what trust is all about...
...nothing grows without a little rain and that dark is when stars come out...
Get lost in the ocean on a Monday like this...then thank God these days rarely happen but when they do its a good reminder to appreciate all the more the awesome days that usually exist...
My favorite of all, to escape a Monday like this, is to share it with my favorite friends, like the ones I've known since I was 15...they just understand those surfer girl ways of yours even if now they are colored with swimbikerun and motherhood and broken hearts and all sorts of days that have shaped you into who you are....
.
Going with the flow today...

Whatever is going on...my grandmother's advice was always:

"This too shall pass"

Hang in there.

I crawled in my hole last week and did nothing. Well, I did stuff with my kid and we ate ice cream and cup cakes. I'm back out of the hole and a few pounds heavier. Time to get back to running.

Hope you have come out of your hole as well.

Bree - you are a ray of sunshine and inspiration, especially to know that you have those Monday blues, too. Hoping your week is shaping up. You sound like a great mom. Your abs are absolutely amazing in this picture. Gee whiz.
