"Promise me you will not spend so much time treading water and trying to keep your head above the waves that you forget, truly forget, how much you have always loved to swim" - Tyler Knott Gregson.
This is me, running without a care in the world, in a beautiful field in Devon over three years ago. It was empty except for my sisters and I. We spent the sunset dancing around, getting damp shoes from treading in dewy greens, spinning in circles and practising yoga poses. Most of it was caught on camera and it gives me great joy to look back on the pictures my sisters and I took, laughing giggles of love and togetherness. It's those moments which I'll remember forever which often inspire me to refocus when faced with battles.
The quotation is one I noticed on Pinterest recently. I think it is the perfect depiction of the danger of getting caught up in the difficulties or supposed mundaneness of a task, whatever that may be, that you forget what you like about it, the reason you're able to do it and the motivation for doing it in the first place. Equally, when something is getting you down, it is very easy to become consumed by it but this is a nice little nudge to remember that you are alive.
Make time for what you love, act with passion and aim to do the best in whatever it is you're doing. Easier said than done, I know, but if you aspire for 100%, the results will be pride-worthy nonetheless.
This is my first post in the 2014 Blogger Challenge, hosted here. There will hopefully be a new post every fortnight based on a different task set. I hope you enjoy it. If you're also taking part, please let me know as I would love to see your take on each challenge.
