Sadly, it doesn’t.
I haven’t participated in a Mamavation Monday roundup in quite some time. Since the beginning of December actually.
Holidays are hard for me. I tend to spend them thinking about what could have been and wishing I could go back in time and change some things. This leads me quite quickly into a funk, some may call it a depression.
You would think that after 3 years I’d be able to brace myself for the inevitable, but alas I can’t.
One thing is for sure. I realized that the biggest thing that really helped me out of this originally was running. Something I, again, haven’t done since December.
Running was that one thing that allowed me to clear my head.
It’s while running that I all I have to focus on is feeling better. I don’t have to be a mom or a wife. I’m just me, running down the road or on the treadmill. It’s a release.
So, I’m done sitting here living and dwelling in this thoughts and emotions. Starting tomorrow, Monday, I’ll be back at the gym.
Even thought I’m busy with my busy I NEED to make the time to do this. It’s not only beneficial to me but ultimately my family as well since it will allow me to be better for them.
How about you? Is exercise an emotional release for you too?
