put a smile on your face, make the world a better place

You know what? It's been a straight up shitty week. I'm stressed, exhausted, and I've cried way too much. I've also had a headache since, oh.. Sunday night. BUT! Instead of focusing on the negatives (aka what I normally do), I'm going to share some with you some accomplishments and things that have made me smile recently
  • This past Saturday I rode 20 miles on the bike. By myself! That may not be much of an accomplishment for anyone else, but it's the longest I've been on the bike without someone else to entertain me. I was le tired by the end, but very proud of myself.
    i was all over the place!
    • In addition to biking 20 miles, I went finally grew a pair and biked over the Mass Ave bridge. For those of you who don't live in Boston, this bridge is a little over 1/3 of a mile long and there is ALWAYS a ton of traffic. It was scary but I conquered it! Now I don't have to restrict myself to riding on this side of the river.

    the bridge in question
    •  My lovely, wonderful physical therapist told me that I can.. are you ready for this? Maybe you should sit down.. I CAN START RUNNING AGAIN. Today we did a lot of strength work and as I was leaving she said "So, why don't you try running for 5 minutes at a time and see how that goes? It will probably feel weird, but give it a go and let me know how it is." I could barely contain my excitement. 
    So tell me, what has made YOU smile lately? I want to hear it!
