For some odd reason I’m going through a total lack of focus and determination the last two weeks. From writing to running it seems that I have exhausted my tanks and am literally running on empty. I can tell you when it comes to writing, I’ve been here before. Writers block is a hazard one must encounter and deal with from time to time when weaving words together. When this happens I try not to sweat it and venture out and experience life. The experiences then just fuels the imagination, it’s just how it works for me anyway. All creative types have a different method.
I can also tell you that in terms of running this too shall pass. It could be a brief spell of depression again. I know it did come into my life several weeks ago and prevented me from completing a 15 mile run. To be honest it was unnerving at how it deterred me from my goal. That’s the strange thing with this thing I call ‘depression’ or sometimes just having a ‘bad run of days’. From experience, I can tell you that it too shall pass. Being overwhelmed or overtaken by the feelings is no means something I enjoy, rather a challenge we all must meet. I have my running schedule mapped out for the next couple of months and I’m going to be using the voice in my head that says stopping is unacceptable and not an option. Much like in life I must keep going.
