Choose your battles wisely

Choose your battles wisely. After all, life isn't measured by how many times you stood up to fight. It's not winning battles that makes you happy, but it's how many times you turned away and chose to look into a better direction. Life is too short to spend it on warring. Fight only the most, most, most important ones, let the rest go.

There I sat on Saturday evening with my race kit packed and just jotting down the route for the drive to Bishop Stortford to the Stort 30 race on Sunday morning. I quietly asked the Delightful Mrs S if the SatNav was still in the car when she went into a blind fury about my running adventures, being at work all the time and why I "had" to go on this particular race. I had no answer, I was just too tired and mentally worn out to argue....

I chose my battle wisely.

Yes, I am disappointed as I wanted to meet up with a few of the faces on the circuit and enjoy the morning out but I have to be sensible, I am tired, I am not as fit as I should be and it has been a long week after quite a bad infection.

I chose my battle wisely.

  1. You chose well. I have to do that from time to time as well and in the long run it is always for the best. There will be many more battles to fight.
