I dare you…

April 6, 2011

Years ago after a really bad break up I had, a really good friend of mine and I stayed up late one night talking about life. My friend gave me some really wise advice that I have never forgotten. He told me I needed to marry someone who would take me by the hand and run with me in life. Not someone that would just go through the motions of life with me and do the bare minimum but someone who wanted to take life for all that it is, grab my hand, and run together, pushing each other to be our best.

Maybe this advice doesn’t hit home as much for you as it did and does for me. But for me I apply this not only in marriage but in all things. I run after life. I run after my dreams. I run after progression and growth. I like using the word “run” because it implies not just simply doing something here and there but rather going after something with all that you are and want to be, even if it requires physical exertion.

I see so many people not going after what they want simply because they don’t know where to start. Speaking from my experience with starting Taylor Morgan, take it one day at a time. Accomplish something every day, no matter how big or small that thing is. It’s overwhelming if you think of everything you have to do all at once. So just take it a day at a time.

Whatever it is that you have been thinking of doing, changing, starting, I say to you it’s time to lift yourself up and go after it! Run after it with all you are. If you put your whole self into it, it will show. So what happens next? I dare you to run!

    Brilliantly said. A wise friend encourages me to move towards my goal daily as well, with a 15 minute rule. 15 minutes a day is 15 min closer than brushing it off and not doing anything at all. And 15 min is do-able. Who could make excuses with that rule in place?!?

    The theory really does work!

    You have found someone who RUNS BESIDE YOU. I am so happy that you are both on that path together. I need to find someone who wants to run on the SAME path as me now 😉 Any friends who are fabulous singles?? 😉

    Those were some wise words your friend spoke. And so true. I have learned as well that you need someone who will always push you to be the best version of yourself – someone who will support your dreams and goals. And sometimes we fashion girls have dreams made for princesses…

    I think running is the only thing we can do towards our goals. I do wish you the best of luck dear in your new venture with FIT! So happy for you!

    Love this post! I’m home sick today, and instead of doing my homework, I decided to start reading your blog from the beginning. At least something good is coming from being sick. 🙂
