TGIF! Today is fabulous Friday! This week has felt incredibly long despite being a short week due to the hurricane. Irmageddon put a lot of strain on all of us with the planning and preparing we had to do for our families and for work. Perhaps this is why we all felt so utterly exhausted today.
I’ve been quite productive this week even though it has been a short an painful week. Each and every day we have a choice how we respond to our circumstances.. I choose to say F*#C you to those who seek to marginalize others. As beaten up as I felt physically, the choice has become clear. Leaders have an obligation, through good and especially through bad, to find the light at the end of the tunnel. Leaders have the obligation to be both the beacon of hope and the agent of change. Bound together by a common passion and drive to be the best we can, the group of leaders I have surrounded myself with is amazing. We will change the world for the better, so you best be ready.
The downside in all of this productivity is that I completely missed lunch. A complete and total travesty since I had actually remembered to pack my yummy, vegan protein shake. No, its not an oxymoron. Its actually quite flavorful, low calorie and does not contain soy or other allergens. I love my Zumba Shake Shake Shake (Lorbach10 is my affiliate code if you’re interested.) By the time I realized I had missed lunch, it was 5:00 pm. I headed home and grabbed some provolone cheese to fuel my run.
Piggie and I ran 3 miles, which felt fantastic. Nothing clears your head better than a nice run with your bestie. The sky was amazing tonight with nary a cloud in the sky and a big, full setting sun. Florida’s skies are thing of beauty. Its been a rough week getting back into running outdoors. The heat makes it tough to run, but it feels remarkable to be back on the trail outside. There’s nothing better than running with my puppys’, to remove the stress of the work day. Since I had such an amazing lunch, I’m treating myself to some Sushi Yama tonight. Talk about flavorful!
