Happy MONDAY! TGIM!
QUOTE OF THE DAY: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” ~ AFRICAN PROVERB
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: My two good friends and I just completed our own self- organized, self-paced and self-run triathlon. It was the second year we all did this together and it was so much fun. But I also felt a deep satisfaction in my soul after we all completed. This was not an organized race where we paid people money and all that. It was free. We just did it for fun.
We all took off Friday, June 15th from work and tackled this event together. We swam 800 meters in a City pool, biked 14 miles and then ran 3 miles.
It was glorious! It was so rich and satisfying. I value this experience highly because it is rare to find friends who want to do this together. After the event, we went to Rudy’s BBQ to celebrate and eat and talk about this and other things in life. Times like that make me thankful for my friends.
If you want to join us next year, please let me know.
If you have friends that you are thankful to have in your life, definitely tell them this week that you appreciate them.
AFFIRMATIONS OF THE DAY:

2) Life is better with friends.
3) A good friend is someone who loves you when you forget to love yourself.
