Take some time to clear your mind today. We all need a refresher once in a while. For me, I try to take a moment to slow down, recuperate, and sigh everyday. Try and sit outside, in the shade for 10 minutes and find your stillness. This summer, I got the chance to go to Cancun and spent a lot of time just watching the waters.

I wasn’t chosen for a scholarship offered by my medical school for which I thought I was a good fit (okay, I wasn’t even one of the 3 finalists…). Get this: the group was looking for a med student who loves running and would keep in contact through blogging (…and who lives out the virtues of the physician the award was named after…yes, this part is more vague and maybe doesn’t have Geraldine written all over it…). I was let down for a while remember all those 10+ mile runs when I was motivated by knowing that there are people at my school who support my running and think it’s an important part of life. All those thoughts and daydreams burst away and I was left like a blob on the couch. Then I wanted to get out of this hole as fast as I could: thought about the weaknesses of my application, and started looking for more opportunities. I’m trying again. 
Didn’t eat that healthy today? Skimped on a workout? The disappointment only subsides if you DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. Get up, go out, and change one aspect of your day for the better. This is why I love eating healthy and maintaining and active lifestyle: it’s a challenge everyday. And there’s a purpose to everyday.

Hiking Panoramic Trail to Glacier Point and make to Yosemite Valley. 11 miles round trip, including a grueling and steep 4 miles down hill, peak elevation of 7214 ft. It was an amazing experience with waterfalls, rivers, and some of the best views in the world. But views don’t come easy!
