As a Working/Running/Blogging Mom my plate is nearly always FULL. Being busy is my life and I have accepted that. I TRY to keep a positive attitude and in general I am successful. How you ask?
My Best Friend Charity introduced me to the idea of my PIE. There are times in life when you feel depleted like something is missing...your PIE is not full. After having a Girls Night with me she would leave and say "Thank you my Pie is Full now."
It is the easiest thing in the world to just be sad. To let all the things that make you stressed and depressed take over. Granted there are times when life does not make sense and you must depart from the world to mourn, take that time. More often than not, the things we let get us down is all a matter of how we think about LIFE.
Mind, Body, and Soul= Your PIE
Things that Fill my PIE:
-Muscle Man and his doting and loving words.
-RUNNING...Good days and bad days, I love to be out in Nature by the power of my size 10's.
-Hugs and Kisses from my Little Studs.
-Girls Night and phone calls from my Friends.
-My Mom calling to ask what I need from Trader Joes.
-Hosting "High Five Friday" and reading all of the Race Reports after the weekend.
-Vendors who believe in me and are willing to let me TEST products...Fun Tall Mom Test Lab Reviews coming soon..
-Amazing and unexpected Bloggy love from friends I have never met
*Jillian HERE host of "Props Wednesday" I was floored to see that I was getting props. Her words brought tears to my eyes.. Total Pie Filler.
*TMB HERE dedicated mile 13 of her Marathon this weekend to ME. WHAT??? I was, and still am, amazed and totally honored.
*Believe HERE has "Feel Good Friday" last Friday she called me "Inspiring" ...again tears. If I was feeling tired and done with the week this Filled my PIE for sure.
-Fun events at local Running Stores... Diva night at Fleet Feet tonight!! Can't wait to meet Zoe and possibly Kerrie.
-Running Dates. No matter the pace running with someone is such a TREAT.
-Trees, yes Trees fill my pie. I am not a Tree Hugger, but being in the woods makes me feel complete.
