Un-Becoming

I have recaps to write but first I have gotten sidetracked by a motivational post shared by the awesome Fellow Flowers.

It goes a little something like this.

It resonated with me.  I realized that this whole running experience has truly been my un-becoming.  The more I run, the more I challenge myself, the more I un-become.  The limits I've placed on myself are falling away, any preconceived notions I had of myself are proving to be not necessarily true.  

At this point in my life I am probably the most comfortable in my skin than I have ever been.  The journey is about me becoming me and not so much what I think everyone wants me to be. 

I've shed expectations, shed mistakes and failures and I'm learning to accept myself as I am.

It's very liberating to see what I've let go of to become the unfiltered Suzanne.  So while last year was the year of me being happy, this year may just be my year of un-becoming.

Are you un-becoming too?
