Decorate: make something look more attractive by adding extra items or images to it
I am sure that at least one blogger is going to write something about decorating for the holidays, or decorating a van for Ragnar, maybe? As usual, I’m going to march to the beat of my own drum or take the path not taken (maybe, we’ll see).
I don’t decorate for the holidays. My mom always did, but I just didn’t inherit that gene. I’m too busy storing clothes to store decorations.
Your body is your temple, it’s your home, and you must decorate it.
I have said, almost from the beginning, if I can’t be a good runner, I can look like a good runner. It’s the old “if you feel good about yourself, you do better”. I firmly believe that. Or fake it til you make it — your choice.
Ever notice the runners who run with their eyes glued to the road? I think it’s often because they have low self esteem. And I totally get that, it’s still something I struggle with: I’m not good enough, thin enough, patient enough, and on and on and on.
I only run watching the pavement when it’s icy or covered in something that could turn an ankle. I may be slow, but I’m a runner. And if decorating my body in pretty running outfits helps me feel like a “real” runner? Nothing wrong with looking good.
It might just give you that little push you need to do your best.
Tell me in the comments:
Do you care at all about your clothes when running or working out?
Is your home decorated for the holidays?
Do you think looking good makes you feel better about yourself?
