Reflections after the Run

I realized that it is when I am running that I am most creative, reflective and ambitious. Over the years, I managed to write some of my reflections down and I would like to share them with you.

When you've been through a lot in life, you will learn how to let go of those who make you feel worthless and those who hurt you, and hold on to those who may think you are stupid and would be hard on you but only because you know they love you and want the best for you. If you are at this point in your life, then you are on your way to happier and lighter days!
You can only reach out so much. When a person keeps pushing you away, stop, take a deep breath, hold your head high and move on. Don't waste your time and energy on someone who doesn't appreciate your effort. As long as you know that you have good and real intentions and not pretending to like the person even if you really don't, you're definitely not the one to lose a good night's sleep. Remember, there will always be people out there who are more than willing to have you in their lives and who will genuinely enjoy your company. Stay away from anyone who only wants to have you at their own convenience.
I may not have all the material things to boast, but I feel richer knowing that I inspire other people for being what and who I am and for doing what I do for the people I care about.
Never be fooled by people who can feed you to the full, dress you to perfection and who can take you to a place full of beautiful people. These people can easily show you what it seem like a genuine act of kindness, but they can also be the same people who will crucify you behind your back. Worst of all, they will brag about what they have done and what they have given to you. So beware, it's better to be hungry and ugly than to be surrounded by fake people.
There will be a point in your life when you need to prioritize your friends. When that time comes, it shouldn't even be about whom you have known the longest. Just remember that friend who have always treated you RIGHT. The friend who NEVER made you their option. The friend who NEVER made you feel less of a friend and the friend who has NEVER given you a reason to doubt your friendship. That, and it shouldn't be difficult.

 This is why I am grateful everyday for the beautiful people in my life - "We'll always have that bags and shoes lovers in us. But we also love to write about anything under the sun, express how we feel, enjoy substance in conversations, take genuine interest in other people...
That's what matters after all... Just do what you got to do in your personal pursuit! Your happiness is a choice and your personal responsibility." - Julia Sof

You know you've lived a life when you've gone out of your comfort zone and realized that that's one of the best things you've ever done in your life. When you have helped people in need. When you've given more than what you are able to give. When you've gone out of your way to make other people happy. When people praise you for keeping your feet on the ground and for looking back to where you've come from. When people say that you're an inspiration to them not because of what you have achieved in life, but of who and what you are as a person. When you can turn the simplest things into the best experiences you had in your life....Living a life is not all about possessions, it's about making a difference in your life and in other people's lives.
If trying to be good and trying hard to make things right mean breaking apart what once was a strong bond, I would rather be bad and pay for the price. It's heartbreaking to realize that after you've given your everything to the point of sacrificing your own happiness, it still ends up to nothing. Life is nothing but unfair, and all that's left is emptiness. 
It should not all be about giving. It should also be about understanding the person if they are not able to give. Sharing your blessings means doing it when you can, and not forcing it just to please other people.
 Life indeed is too short. Make the most out of it. Show your family how much you love them. Spend time with people who matter the most. Take time to say hi to a friend even if you don't need anything. Loosen up. Break the rules (sometimes). It's okay to be silly. Take risks and face the consequences. Let go and move on. Forgive but never forget. Do your share of good act everyday. Make someone smile. Learn to give more. Help those who are in need. See beyond material things. Appreciate what you have. It's okay to dream. In fact, dream big and make it happen. Travel and see the world. Speak to strangers, who knows they might change your life forever. Make your family proud. Be an inspiration to other people. Make a difference. Believe in God. Believe in angels. Always be the bigger person. Be yourself. ---- There are a lot of things you can do to have a meaningful life. Just. Do. It.

Today, it's not about how I fell, it's all about how I picked myself up, held my head high and moved on.

There you go.
