Hiding behind words #TheRunningWriter

It’s easier said than done.

That phrase drives me bonkers. It’s funny, though, because it may drive me crazy, but I still hide behind it. Use it as an excuse.

How ’bout you?

I use it to hide behind eating poorly. That’s the biggest one for me. I’m an athlete, running those long hard miles week in and week out demands healthy eating to fuel my body. To protect it from injury and to keep it energized and working efficiently.

But if I have to even think about cooking a good meal–eating Mac-n-cheese is just way easier.

It’s pasta right? Runners need pasta!

Oh who am I kidding?

We all hide behind a phrase or excuse sometimes. Things like, “it’s not fair” or “it’s not my fault” or whatever. We hide behind them.

The issue isn’t the phrase or the words, it’s the fact that we’re looking for something to blame or hide behind, instead of owning our behavior and taking responsibility for actions.

Life is difficult. And, yeah, lots of things are easier said than done. But you still have to do them. You have to take responsibility for your day and your life.

But remember, you’re not alone in life. You CAN do it. You ARE strong.
