Fitness Fridays: Working Out Emotions

The past two weeks have weighed on me heavily.  I have not found the words yet to articulate my thoughts and feelings.  The hate and lack of compassion I see on Facebook has triggered my anxiety.  When my anxiety and irritation rises to the boiling point, I sweat it out in a workout.  I needed to get out all these emotions that cloud my words.  My long run was five miles.  I ran without my phone.  I listened to my breath and heard the rhythm of my feet pounding the pavement.  My mind is starting to clear.  I can rise above the swirling emotions and focus.  I am ready to raise my voice and own my truth.

Juggling parenthood, housework and working outside the home in the corporate world with my wonderful husband. Mom to 2 beautiful girls. PPD and PPA survivor. The title of my blog is after a phrase that was repeated to me in Spain during my semester abroad in college. It roughly translates to relax and calm down. Trying to tame my inner perfectionist and just be a good enough mom.
