Thursday Thoughts from Sunrises to Weight Lifting

It's Thursday, and I've had some random thoughts, so we'll go with the theme of Thursday Thoughts - also known as "What's on My Mind."

It's funny how many random, fleeting thoughts you have flitting around your brain constantly. Sometimes you remember them, most of the time you don't. And it's funny that it's usually the lesser important thoughts that somehow stick around.



During my morning run on Wednesday, I took a route that put me close to the river for this spectacular sunrise. It made me question why more people don't get up early to enjoy this beauty. We only have so many sunrises to see in a lifetime.

Speaking of, even though I was looking forward to "sleeping in" this morning, I felt like I had really missed out by not getting up earlier to run again.

I often wonder why people are just so ugly to each other or feel the need to say something ugly for no reason. I saw a post shared on Facebook with the kids of Goonies grown up. Most everyone had fond memories, but one commenter felt the need to lambaste the movie. Why? Just don't comment.

Also, why can't women hit the toilet? And if they don't, then why not wipe off the seat? I mean, some women spend 5 minutes wiping down the bathroom counters, so why not the seat?

Lastly, I feel like a fraud lately. I do enjoy lifting weights. I love the results. I love feeling stronger. I always preach it to others. But lately, I've been lacking in motivation when it comes to me actually lifting weights. I'm doing it, but I feel like it's going through the motions more than anything so then of course I'm displeased with results.

So, there you have it. What are some of your thoughts this week?
