Capacity for More

When flipping through my daily Timehop today, I saw this post.

The tweet was posted after I took a few days away from home to attend a conference for work. I had to laugh when I saw this because, literally, just a few days ago I tweeted this:

 

This was tweeted after I returned home from this year’s edition of the same conference. And while the sentiment is basically the same, my stress level this year is definitely far higher than last year was. I’ve got more on my mind and more to worry about now.

When I thought I was at my max last year, I’ve learned that I can still feel more stressed. So potentially I can feel even more stressed out than my current extremely stressed out state, but the flip side of that is that I always seem to have the potential for more.

I’ve heard that in many capacities… you are capable of so much more than you give yourself credit. So whether that is how much stress can be piled upon you, how much you can do in terms of fitness, or anything else you may be confronted with… I guess we have to give ourselves credit. Human beings are amazingly resilient creatures and we can bear a lot.

Now to just figure out how to translate that knowledge into my running and my meditation goals and my self-care habits.
