That is a message I would have benefited from had I received it this morning at work when my computer wasn't working and I felt like chicken little thinking the sky was falling... but nonetheless I have received this message loud and clear. And now tonight after a crane pose, hand stand, heron pose and more sun salutations than I can count, my head is clear and I am trusting my abilities.
I was thinking on my drive home that I wish I could keep these words with me during a race or really tough part of a run. Maybe for my next race I'll write those words or some inspiring mantra on my forearm where people write their mile pacing breakdowns.
I overcame something else tonight... trusting all of those crazy people who drink green smoothies. Yes everyone - I am a green smoothie virgin... until tonight! I know I added spinach to my smoothies, but I always added tons of blueberries or raspberries to hide the green.
Tonight I made a smoothie, but didn't add any blueberries, just mangos and grapes and it came out green. It is delicious! Even my six year old drank it saying 'Hey - it tastes like fruit!' Wow. SO a big thank you to everyone out there sharing your green smoothie recipes... I believe this is an inspiring site - http://greenmonstermovement.com/ I am not afraid anymore! Perhaps kale is just around the corner!
