The Small Picture.

Many changes have been happening lately in the world of Chelsea. Like previously mentioned it is related to things I do (and then do not) discuss on this here blog. But life on the personal front has actually been peachy.

In the last 6 months I’ve managed to move, buy myself a new car, and have really found a balance in ALL AREAS OF MY LIFE. Financial, social, personal.

Although at the moment I’m not a racing maniac (who in the past has ignored most adult responsibilities at times in lieu of training for a race – just me?) through it all this year I’ve managed to still train for and complete 2 ultramarathons (one of them on trails) Yeah, trail running and I actually kind of need to reconvene. I’m missing being out on that dirt path more.

I’ve been more introspective lately about life in general. It has been actually really great for my body mind and spirit. Also thank you, essential oils for making me stop and breathe amidst work chaos. Deep breaths during times of a crazy schedule working 2 demanding jobs equals a happy Chelsea.

For those of you who are the praying kind and can relate, God has blessed me with a side hustle that I love without a doubt. I’m teaching more classes at the gym than ever before and this has been extremely rewarding to be able to use my gifts and talents effectively. I’ve taken on more at my career/tv job and it is staying float thanks to my great editor and people that help make THAT world go ‘round.

I recently read a post on Reddit running and it definitely helped to put some things in perspective about runners, running and our self worth in general.

Sometimes it just helps to not only get a different perspective on things – but just to know that there are others out there, a community of sorts. A community that is still trying to figure it all out. It not only helps to get with community but to also tap into YOU…figure out what makes it happen through however YOU need to. And if you need to breathe, stretch, shake, let it go. Just know that distance running or whatever passion you are eternally after…will always be there. With open arms. Ready to embrace you for the beautiful human being that you truly are.

Focus on the small picture – be kind – you are worthy.

What are some things that keep you calm in the midst of a chaotic world?
Lately…tons of HOT YOGA…morning miles…evening views…and amazing friends and family in my life who just get me.
