Magical Moment 29, "Life's Like a Run"

This morning on my run, I thought just how much a person can learn from such a simple thing. So much of running (or exercise, or anything that's hard but good for you) can be applied to our daily lives! Put this on a t-shirt (actually it’s probably already on one). Kind of an easy metaphor, but you can’t expect creative genius every day!

Life is like a run…

You have to go one step at a time.

Every now and then, you need a friend to motivate you, yell at you, and get you through the hard parts.

Sometimes you don’t wanna, but you gotta!

There obstacles on the path. Avoid ‘em. Crash into ‘em. Or just power through ‘em.

If you prepare your mind and your body, you’ll do much better.

If you don’t stay disciplined, you’ll slow down.

Sometimes if you hurry too much, you miss the beautiful view around you.

It’s much better with music!

If you’ve given it your all, you feel satisfied and rewarded when it’s over.
