I am a girl who loves mountains, changing seasons, running, true backpacking, strong coffee, and knitting with high quality yarn.
When something bad happens, you have three choices: let it define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you.
The purpose of life is to discover and develop your gift. The meaning of life comes from sharing your gift with others. - David Viscott

Dealing with issues.
I tried to push my limits with races. I had never been a fast runner, nor will I ever be. I am a solid runner, and most importantly, fun runner. I wasn’t picked for the team because of my “amazing” running accomplishments, but because I am friendly and fun. Am I trying to hide behind improving performance my feelings? These are wrong reasons, and they are momentary.
Well, I'll just keep thinking of Johnny Lyon's expression: I don’t believe life is a journey, I believe it’s an experience. If you are always looking to an end, it will be difficult to see the beauty all around you everyday. I will keep my eyes open. I will try and see the beauty.
p.p.s. the post has been edited due to realizing how crazy it was to throw my personal depressed feelings on people around. It was a moment of weakness. It shall pass, thank you very much for your comments.
