Tonight I once again learned what real freedom means. I had a pretty long day at work and felt somewhat caught up in things. Things have been going really well, yet somehow I felt like I was losing control over life. Wandering around without any particular direction.

Then I came home and went on a long run. That was all I needed. I think that’s all anyone will ever need to gain perspective. Running clears your mind, gets the right hormones flowing in your body and allows you to gather your thoughts again. And it makes you feel good about yourself. Running rocks. Go do it. Or go on a long walk. Ride your bike. Work out in the gym. Climb a wall or go on a swim. Sometimes we all feel bad about things. Exercising will turn things around. Wherever you want. And whenever you want. That’s freedom.
