Today is Friday. This is the most profound thing I will say this post.
The weather was yucky again so I decided to hit the treadmill at the gym. Not my favorite, but desperate times and all…
I have a confession about the treadmill though. Secretly, I love it. I love setting the speed and knowing exactly how fast I’m going, how many calories burned, how many miles gone. I love the fan in my face. I love not having to watch where I am going. And my favorite… sticking the buds in my ears, cranking up the music, and zoning OUT!
In my head, I am grooving, singing, jamming out. On the outside, I am a respectable adult human.
I don’t think deep thoughts. I don’t worry. I don’t even plan my next move. I just breathe, sing at the top of brain, and smile. Sometimes–zoning out, taking a break, setting a pause–is the best thing you can do. Sometimes–thinking it through, feeling it deeply, talking it out–is not an option. And sometimes, you just need to have a liberating dance or cry or whatever sets you free… today I danced on a treadmill.
It’s a good day my fellow travelers..
