Sometimes we need a reminder to keep our heads held high
Physically, keep your head up
Cycling, running, walking, everything...
so you can see what's coming,
be aware of your surroundings,
be safe and be prepared for what could happen.
Side effect: keeping your head up you get to see all the amazing things around you.
If your looking forward, you will move forward.
On my run yesterday afternoon, I tried to focus on keeping my head up.
Watching the things around me, not staring at my feet or the ground around them.
I ended up having a fabulous run, I started looking up and forward and my body followed suit.

Mentally, keep your head up
As I begin training for another "goal race", I think about things I want to focus on.
One of the biggest things is keeping my head up[physically & emotionally]-
"where the mind goes, the body will follow"
We can't dwell on whats behind us: the past is the past.
Time to focus on what's right in front of us.
There are so many things to be happy about right now,
I feel beyond grateful for all of the amazing things I have.
Life is to short to stress about things that don't deserve to be an issue in my life in the first place.
Time to focus on continuing to study and learn and grow with my job.
Time to focus on marathon training and going after my big goals.
Time to focus on planning John & I's wedding- We're ready for the next chapter in our lives.
Time to focus on being grateful for the friends and family that are by my side.
Can you tell I'm a little sappy today? :):)
Where are you looking right now--the past or the future?
How do you "focus" when starting something new?
Pay attention on your next run/walk/ride...where do you find yourself looking most?
