How true is that? So true. Last spring I was struggling through the couch to 5k program, yet I was running religiously 3-4 times a week. I called myself a runner. I was a runner. I was doing it and my mind accepted the aches and pains that were associated with being that runner. I accepted the cold weather runs (although nothing like the cold snap we are currently suffering through). I accepted it all. I believed it. I made the affirmation and I did it. After my foot issues I stopped running regularly and stopped calling myself a runner. All of a sudden the aches and pains associated with running seemed insurmountable. The discipline that I needed to complete my runs was mysteriously missing. I got out there on occasion...but I wasn't the same. You see, I had stopped calling myself a runner...and I had stopped believing it.
(How ironic, as I'm sitting here in my warm toasty house writing this I see a runner out in the brutal cold running...hmmmm)
This affirmation stuff carries over into everything. Affirm that I am...and BE!
I'm working to keep my picture a day rolling......
