Pages turn, chapters end and those endings NEVER come out how you would’ve thought or expected. True colors can be the greatest or the worst experience in your life, people you thought you knew; you discover they’re somebody completely different. Time changes everyone, some for better and others for worse. Lessons get learned whether you’re ready to be taught or not.
We all start as strangers, there is no doubt about that.
The choices that we make in terms of love are usually ones that seem to be inevitable anyway.
We will find people irrationally compelling. We will find souls made of the same stuff ours are. We will find classmates and partners and neighbors and family friends and cousins and sisters in our lives and we intersect in a way that makes them feel like they couldn’t have ever been separate. And this, this is lovely.
But the ease and access isn’t what we crave.
It isn’t what I’m writing about right now.
It isn’t what we revolve around and worry about after it’s gone.
We are all just waiting for another universe to collide with ours, to change what we can’t change ourselves. To fill us, to make us feel whole.
It’s interesting how afterwards, we realize that the storms always return to calm, but the stars will always be changed and we don’t choose whose collisions will change us.
We all start as strangers, but we often tend to forget that we also choose who ends up as a stranger too.
I’m not the best runner but I continue to run. Running is the alone time that allows my brain to untangle the webs that have built up in my mind over the past day or two.
Despite the pain, because it heals my emotional pain.
Despite the self-doubt, because when I’m done – I’ve conquered myself.
Despite the chaos in my life, running allows me to find peace within myself.
When I’m feeling stressed, sad, happy or I just need to clear my head – I run.
The running path is a great listener and it’s free therapy.
My favorite little saying is: Turn your headphones on and turn the world off.
These headphones are my absolute favorite, they are Bluetooth and sound cancelling. Amazon has a few color options and they ship straight to you! Check them out by clicking on them below!
The goal–a world free of MS.
I’ve signed up for my second Bike MS–a fundraising ride that is changing the lives of people affected by MS and helping fuel progress toward a world free of MS. I’d love your support as I prepare for this incredible experience. Last year I was taken back and humbled by the ride in every aspect and the people behind it and involved!
Please support me today.
Pedaling a bike could be the answer to a world free of MS. Mile by mile, dollar by dollar, Bike MS provides much needed funding not only to research, but to ensuring people affected by MS can live their best lives. I just signed up for this year’s ride and I’d really appreciate your support in my fundraising efforts.
I’ve set an ambitious goal because I know that with support from people like you we can get there. The money raised will help fund amazing progress in MS research, as well as services that ensure people affected by MS can live their best lives. This cause is really important to me, so I hope you will help me end MS forever.
Your tax-deductible contribution will help the National MS Society fund groundbreaking research and life-changing services for people living with MS. And ultimately, end MS forever.
