Unexpected Joy - Day 2

October 2, 2016

"Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are"

Write 31 days: Unexpected Joy/Day two

Enlightened by friendship

Sometimes when last minute plans come together they become the most rewarding by filling the space you had not noticed was empty. Today when a group of friends gathered for a morning run we discovered strength together in both mind and body as we allowed the confusion gathering in our hearts the space to unravel.

The thick gray clouds angrily assembled around us adding to the crisp air of fall which combined the perfect course for a run. Walking towards the path as we began our warm up we shared stories of laughter uplifting the influence of friendship while maintaining a momentum in both pace and breath to continue our conversation.

The flutter of discussion allowed the gravity of life to dissipate as harmony reinforced my stride. The trails became a safe place where we could share the stories that hold space in our hearts and sift through the lessons of our lives, a simple  motion that provided surrender to the discomfort and created an awakening to a softer place.

By the end of the run I felt stronger, uplifted by friendship that continues to grow as we rumble through the ups and downs of life, abandoning the barriers we once hid beneath while building authenticity and connection amongst us. And just as the run had absolved my thoughts providing the enlightenment I was seeking, the clouds had abandoned the sky and the sunshine warmed the day creating the best example of unexpected joy I could hope for.
