On Sunsets

Running has always helped me cope with stress. I would imagine that if I ran fast enough I would be able to leave all my problems behind, and they wouldn’t bother me anymore. Of course that would just be wishful thinking, but it would keep me moving. My problems wouldn’t go away, but the endorphins from the workout would help me feel better.

This time, I need endorphins. So I don my usual workout attire – a loose shirt, leggings and rubber shoes, and set out to run.

I walk down the Street as the cold November air envelopes me. My silence is disturbed by the beeping of car horns and the bickering of angry drivers. From afar I see the sky tinted by the setting sun. I walk faster.

Choose happiness

Look towards the sun,
Feel its warm glow on your face;
Let happiness flow.

Love Myself

Today is the day that I decide to love myself. I enjoy good food that people on diets will only eat on cheat days. I enjoy new experiences, and love to try new things. How sad would it be to go to a new town or city, visit a recommended restaurant and eat none of their specials because your restricted healthy lifestyle won’t allow it? I want to enjoy my life. The experience of having a bite of hot gooey chocolate chip cookie and a teaspoonful of cold vanilla ice cream together in your mouth, with a wash down of thick milk, is heavenly. I definitely would not trade that for the world!

Ever since I started medical school, I have found it harder to be grateful. The constant struggle to adjust to the toxicity somehow prevented me from seeing the beauty in my circumstances.  I’ve always looked at what I lack instead of what I have. However, this 2016, I want that to change. I realized that life's too short to spend it being miserable. So, I'm going to quit wallowing in my frustrations, and I will stand up and walk through the rest of my life. This time, with a better outlook.

One way that has helped me stay positive is to  count my blessings. Doing so made me realize that God has given more than what I give Him credit for.  To show you, I will share how God made my February colorful.
