Life is full of transitions and changes. And life as a mom sometimes overflows with it!
If nothing else, there are the many transitions your child goes through, from newborn baby to fully grown adult.
And these transitions of your child mean yóú have to move on too! Even if you are perfectly happy, just where you are. You have to come along, even if you feel like kicking and screaming: 'I'm not ready yet!'
Sometimes you didn't see the transtion coming and you have to run to catch up. Those are the times when you find yourself shouting: 'Wait for me! I'm coming!' Like when my nine year old had a little bump on her chest and I took her to the doctor to check it out, and he told me 'her breasts were waking up!' I mean: Huh?! When did that happen? Last time I looked she was just a little baby!
Through all these wonderful, sometimes painful transitions, luckily there is one constant in life, and that's running.
Running is always there. When I'm all flustered because I just put the little baby crib away for the very last time, going out for a run helps me make one more transition: from inner turmoil to inner calm!
