Salvere Blog: What If We Thought of …

May 8, 2019
life is like a book
… Our lives like we do books. Think about it – While reading a book, each page brings an opportunity to learn something new, the possibility for an adventure, to meet someone different, to see more of the world. Each page builds on the story, adds something to the details. Pages sometimes focus on smaller details and sometimes bring something bigger. When I read a book, I love to feel the excitement of what’s next and look forward to the journey.
Working with people on their very personal fitness journey for many years, it seems, with certain things (especially moving our bodies) we forget about the excitement of learning something new and instead avoid it or become frustrated.
We forget about the benefits of practice and instead feel like we need to be an immediate expert.
We forget that when things seem to be going askew, go to the basics and spend some time focusing on those instead feel like we failed because we “went backwards”.
We forget to find ways to enjoy the journey, instead we rush to the finish line.
How can we find that excitement in learning something new, that joy in building through step by step progress and appreciate the importance of the basics?

Running and Life??

October 7, 2010

This year has been a year of more running for me then any other time in my life. As someone that looked for every reason to get out of running any distance longer then a short sprint as a young athlete, it’s become a quite enjoyable part of my adult life, especially over the past year… While out on a training run a few weeks ago, I got to thinking about how running can simulate life… And here’s what came of that experience.

Running… Sometimes it’s great, sometimes it sucks… Sometimes it’s slow and uphill, sometimes you coast downhill and other times it flat and steady. Regardless, you can only take one step at a time and put one foot in front of the other to get to your destination…

If you look too far ahead, it can be overwhelming. If you focus on what is right in front of your, things feel more achievable. Occasionally glance up to see your progress… When the finish line is near, it’s exciting!!
