Running Through My Thoughts is a collection of personal essays exploring the connection between running and writing. These two seemingly unrelated activities weave together as I learn self-discipline, tenacity, and trust. These skills learned while pounding the pavement will translate into a life tapping the keyboard. Join me on the journey and discover one of your own.
“People often talk about how difficult it is to say no to others, but it is equally difficult to say yes to something for yourself. Something that either doesn’t fit into the societal mold or something that takes time away from other things you “should” be doing. In essence, by saying yes to yourself, you have to say no to someone else. It is a double whammy of hard.” ~ Jerri Miller, Running Through My Thoughts

Imagine creating goals that allow us to expand rather than achieve (though those two terms are not mutually exclusive). We can design goals with compassion, which allows us the space to work toward them without beating ourselves us with every misstep. We can learn new routines and habits that serve us in working toward our goals and talk to ourselves nicer along the way and be our own cheerleader in the process.
Goals, but Different contains journal prompts and other exercises to help you determine the best path for you. You will have the opportunity to design specific goals and be the architect of how you will achieve them.
It’s like a self-paced course in the form of an ebook.

You know that moment? The one where a single leaf glides, sliding this way and that, until it touches the ground. Watching it makes everything else blur for a minute. It’s just you and the one, single, solitary leaf.
Or that time when walking on a path in the woods, an entire rainstorm of leaves flit around you, falling at various speeds until they swirl on the path.
These moments that seem so ordinary hold magic in that they can allow everything else to fall away, even if just for seconds.
We often strive for extraordinary. We shun mediocre. But what if the ordinary is where the most power lives?
This is what Poems from the Everyday explores and more.
