I went to bed with these words on my heart.
“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory or defeat.”
I heard them for the first time my junior year of high school in math class of all places. Why we were pondering the words of a President instead of trigonometry probably goes a long way in explaining why I am so terrible at math.
But anyway, they tend to resurface when they are needed.
I woke up having dreamt about having run a marathon.
Which is only strange because I rarely dream and I don’t know that I’ve ever dreamt about running.
I am happiest in many places. I am happiest when I am running long. To me, running long is the place where everything comes together.
2011 was a year of change. 2012 was a year of settling into normal.
2013 is the year where everything comes together.
You have to create the world you want to live in.
