Run, Ariana! Run!

Hello, welcome to my blog.

I am a 16 year old girl in California who apparently finds joy in running (crazy, I know right?), and I actually joined cross country because I hated it. Little did I know I would fall in love with it. Although I am injured at the moment, I plan to come back better than ever! I could go on, but I don't want my bio to be a billion pages long (and it could be... so you're welcome).

To be honest, I don't have the slightest clue as to what I am doing, but hey,I try (isn't that how life goes?). This blog is a compilation of things I find funny and inspiring, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Thanks & Have a nice day

It takes a lot to start over again … But you owe it to yourself.

I want to get more comfortable being uncomfortable. I want to get more confident being uncertain. I don’t want to shrink back just because something isn’t easy. I want to push back, and make more room in the area between I can’t and I can.

When you find yourself drowning in self-hate, you have to remind yourself that you weren’t born feeling this way. That at some point in your journey, some person or experience sent you the message that there was something wrong with who you are, and you internalized those messages and took them on as your truth. But that hate isn’t yours to carry, and those judgments aren’t about you. And in the same way that you learned to think badly of yourself, you can learn to think new, self-loving and accepting thoughts. You can learn to challenge those beliefs, take away their power, and reclaim your own. It won’t be easy, and it won’t happen over night. But it is possible. And it starts when you decide that there has to be more to life than this pain you feel. It starts when you decide that you deserve to discover it.
