As I was driving past Memorial Park on the way to a client meeting in the Texas Medical Center, I saw a woman dressed in scrubs running hard and fast. I wondered what she was running away from, toward or for. She was so focused. I imagined it was for all three reasons. She was running away from a stressful situation, running toward recapturing her joy, running FOR her life. I considered her choice regarding where she chose to run this day – into the woods, away from the concrete and metal, to let nature surround her, hold her in its loving hands to heal, re-energize, and connect with her Higher Self and guiding spirits. What a perfect choice.
Then, as I turned the corner, I saw another woman sitting on a curb, crying her eyes out. My hope was that she, too, would get up and run.
