A new passion

I just ran 2 miles. Ok, I didn't run the whole time, but almost. It was the most exhilarating and fulfilling thing I have done in such a long time. Somewhere along the road of marriage and mommy-hood, I lost myself. Latissa became wife. Mother. Student. Massage Therapist. Cook. Dog walker. Maid. Daughter. Friend. Teacher. All these hats. So many hats to wear. To get lost in. But the Latissa hat never was worn. It became dusty in the corner. I thought it just wasn't as important as all the other hats. Not a priority, when the other hats are all demanding to be worn. But the Latissa hat is key. It gives me strength and motivation to be my best, to give my best, to love myself, because if I love myself, I have the capacity and want and will to love others, and to take care of them the best way I can. I don't know why I forgot this, but I'm putting the Latissa hat back on, at least an hour each day.

Here are my Latissa activities I am discovering again:
1.Run, run run. Includes training for at least a 5K, hopefully a 10K, but dreaming for a marathon.
2.Yoga on the days I don't run
3.Write poetry again
5.Get massages at least every other week.

Hopefully I will also be able to play the violin again, but I have to put some money into it before I can do that.

I'm proud of you and your outlook on things. Take care of yourself and you will do well in life!

I'm happy for you.

Good for you. It is very very easy to lose your original "hat"...I totally understand. That is just part of being a nurturing woman in this time of life. But I am so happy you have found things to work on again. I have recently had the same experience (not with running however! I am NOT a runner!) :) haha

Good luck with it all! You can do it!

Awesome goals! Especially the massage one...yes please! I don't know if this is the best way to write you back...but if you want to come to the boot class every now and then you can just pay when you come. It's 12.50 per class. Email me at megolina21 @ and I'll give you my phone #, then you can just text me that day and tell me when you're coming so I can plan on you! We'd LOVE to have you!! :)
