NO PHOTOSET HAS MADE ME HAPPIER.

MY FAVORITE PHOTOSET IS BACK

I WILL NEVER NOT LOVE THIS PHOTSET

Not a bad Saturday. #specialized #tarmac  #canmore

One day after the ultra, it still hasn’t quite set in that I ran 50k straight. Oh except the lack of ability to walk or go up/down stairs. That has set in quite prominently

I’ve been everything.

I’ve been the person who shuts the door, alone in their room, crying at 2 AM instead of sleeping; faking a smile, barely containing myself during the day; dragging on and on and on.

I’ve been the psychologist; I’ve listened to friends cry on the phone, I know that she cuts, that he hates himself, that she lost her mother when she was 3. I see the people’s pain, but I can’t fix it.

I’ve been a success; the person who works their ass off to reach goals, the person who has a drive.

I’ve been known as the person who loves life; who laughs louder than anyone else, who laughs at their own jokes for 20 minutes, who can put a smile on someone’s face.

I have made mistakes, I’ve done things I will always regret. I’ve hurt others.

I have been forgiven and I have forgiven. I have let go of the hardest events in my life; I have moved on and felt free.

I have loved others, been loved; I see the beauty in each person. I see the sparkle in each persons’ beautiful eyes. I’ve watched passion in others, learned to be passionate.

I have hated myself.
But I have also loved myself.

And at the end of the day, I’ve learned. I’ve learned that I’m a failure, I’m a success, I’m sad, I’m incredibly happy, I’m a gift, I have flaws, I am beautiful, I have ugliness inside.
But you know what? That’s called life.

And I couldn’t ask for anything better.
