|I AM WORTH IT|
Admit it. There are times when you feel blue. Even the happiest of people aren’t happy all the time. Some days we need a little pick me up. For some of us that’s enjoying a cup of coffee from Starbucks, for others it’s burying ourselves in a good book and escaping to another world and for others of us it means being in the company of friends who will lift our spirits.
Sometimes I email myself.
Dorothy ~ You ARE worth it.
A couple of weeks back I talked about Molly Huddle and how a hat she had signed for me inspired me to push myself. [I have not raced a race since Columbus where I wasn’t wearing something she signed]
I received one of the nicest emails after the post. It instantly went into my When You Are Feeling Down folder.
I just read your Molly Huddle post and I am sitting here at work getting all choked up, trying not to cry! It may sound kind of silly but I find so many of your posts so inspirational, just part of the reason I love love reading your blog, and very moving. I especially liked this one because of your wonderful relationship with your mom and also because you were MY “Molly Huddle” yesterday. I did my first attempt at a tempo run and every time I felt like “this is too hard” I thought of you, your goals, and how you’ve succeeded in reaching your goals (and continuing to tackle new ones). Not by giving up, but by pushing through. I pushed myself through and felt so proud afterward. So, thank you for being my inspiration – and I’m sure the inspiration of hundreds of other women out there.
You never know when your words may touch someone. Use them wisely.
So go, right now. Create a When You Are Feeling Down Folder. Email yourself – I am worth it, because you are.
