Sober Strides requires emotional balance, without this we become susceptible to tipping. To achieve balance I utilise, reflection to remain conscious of pain and visualisation to remain hopeful of joy. We already have enough pain in our lives to reflect on, so please don't keep searching for more, however do look for every opportunity to find hope.
This short film will aid in both reflection and vision. For me the emotion that it draws out and the overwhelming amount of passion for life it gives me is priceless. I am not going to spoil the watch for you, however here are a few of my favourite thoughts from Trail Dog.
Happiness is so much simpler than you might think, its about our relationships with the earth, nature and each other.
Jump for joy when you are happy and surround yourself with the people you love.
Live in the moment and Listen more than you talk, but when you do talk, speak from the heart.
Look for the best in everyone and be loyal.
Love unconditionally and shine with all of your light, all of the time.
Always go for a run even if it is raining.
It is a weekly watch for me now and I send much love to Gaëtan, Pèpite and JolynI. Thank you Salomon running TV for making available such motivating, touching and inspirational short films. Check them out and if one consumes you, then please share by contacting me.
