A few weeks ago, maybe even a month now, I posted an entry on Facebook that had something to do with going for a run and feeling kick ass about it. That wasn’t it, but the point is that in the string of comments it turned into a big roar. Young friends, older friends, close friends, distant friends and I think even some of those “accept as friend”s but-you-don’t-really-know-who-the-hell-they-are, friends.
It got me to thinking that maybe we need a little more roar, or, more specifically a little more license to roar. On the last day of this month I’ll turn 36, which isn’t a huge deal, but…
I’m increasingly aware of the you’ll-look-back-and-wish-you’d-been-kinder-to yourself tsk-tsking. Or worse the realization that like the asshole who dumped you in your twenties, you never really knew how good you had it. How great you were, roar-worthy, if you will.
So, without further adieu, I give you a roar for myself that came via a couple of photos taken by my mother-in-law.
Go ahead, give yourself a roar, I promise you deserve it.
Christine, why don’t you start?
And, just to populate the dance floor enough to entice the rest of you, how about you?
oh, damn it. I just cried. Not exactly a roar. Maybe I need to go on my balcony to roar…
Look how high you can jump!!! Awesome. And your arms are incredible.
Speaking of arms, I have been working hard on mine. My dad took a picture of me in golf stance, ready to swing and I could see the results of that work. Rawr.
Look at you! Totally roar-worthy! Love this post 🙂
Rawr! You're awesome, lady.
You've got some height, girl. Thirty six and jumpin' higher than ever.
Lord, girl, look at your PIPES.
How the hell did you do that??
AND, why the hell do you look so absolutely amazing??
You are rocking that bathing suit woman. Rawr.
Those photos are awesome.
Hahah…I remember the fb status! I think I had commented in response that I was about to go out for a run in the rain…even though I was dreading it. ROOAAARR!!! 🙂
I will, as soon as I get my mojo back. I promise.
SO WISH I WAS AT BLOGHER WITH YOU!
R-f-ing-oar! I just ran (okay jogged) with my kids in tow, felt awesome, Luke cheered me on. I'm coming back to me. Thank you for this!
I always pictured you flying like that. I just thought it was the ocean in the background making that noise.
love the admiration on Sean's (is that Sean?) face. He's like… "woah! Dude!" 😉
RIGHT ON GIRL!!!!
