Tim Smith, a fellow writer and friend, once told me on a nice summer run that all runners are running toward something or away from it.
I’ve been trying to use 2017 to make some self improvements, and with that has come a lot of reflection on myself, my actions, and my choices throughout my 20s. (My 30s loom near)
Toward the end of 2016 I took a leap and moved away from my home area to a job that doesn’t pay much, but I enjoy. I found the job and moved in less than a week.
I questioned then if I was running toward my career or away from my home world. I think the answer then was running away. Now, I believe I am finally running toward. I don’t have enough time to feel sorry for myself because my time is focused on doing the best job I can at work, working out every day, writing at least a 1000 words a day, and overall just taking care of me.
It feels nice to be running toward.
