MMM: Find the Joy in the Work

Mid-Week Mental Moment

I had a theater director and mentor growing up who taught me something I’ve held near and dear to my heart over the years. When rehearsals would get tough. When we didn’t want to memorize lines or run the scene one more time she would say:

“Find the joy in the work.”

When our beds feel just too warm and another day seems just too daunting remind yourself to find something joyful in what you do. You are serving a bigger purpose. You need to find it and believe it.

I overcame an eating disorder, anxiety, and depression with the help of this wonderfully amazing thing called running. And that's why I'm here - to share my story and to help those who are going through what I've already gone through. On this blog you'll find running tips, mental health tips, and lots of joy. Join me as we piece life together one run at a time.
