So here I am again; writing. I have contemplated sharing a blog for some time now. I wanted to make it a place where you (my readers) obtained something of value, where I could be expressive and maintain consistency. (The later being the hardest part). The desire to write has tugged long enough, so here I go.
Yes, I have titled my blog after a musical group. Not intentionally, it just turned out that way. However, when I realized "Chasing the Sun" was a title to a song by The Wanted, I had to look the song up (to make sure it deserved a place on my page, of course). The band quoted that the meaning of this song is, "...about following your dreams." That's exactly what I had in mind when I picked this title. I wanted a title that incorporated, a) movement toward wellness, b) my love for running, c) adventure, d) dream chasing, and e) moving in a forward direction to something grand and bright (and hopefully encouraging others to do the same.)
My hope is that you find joy, encouragement and inspiration in these words, obtain something new and maybe pass it on to someone who may also need to hear these words. I will do my very best to be raw, authentic and honest.
My goal is to keep this a place of integrity, while fostering wellness. Sometimes social media sites can be a place of highlight reels. While it is most likely that I will share some highlights, I think it is very important to share the 'lowlights' too. I want this to be a place of REALness. I want people to know they are not alone and we are all on this journey together; just in different boats.
