sore muscles. aching core. pure catharsis. absolute freedom.
there is so much release, joy, and freedom in pushing your body to its limits. in discovering your limits - and then pushing them further. there is so much perspective in overcoming challenges you never thought you could conquer - it puts you in your place and humbles you. it makes you realise that so much is possible, and good god, what other possibilities could be there just waiting to be encountered?
everything else fades away to calm. clarity. perspective. there's nothing to vent or complain about. all frustrations and pent-up emotions disappear and i'm left with a stupid smile of pure satisfaction. there is so much truth in knowing where you stand and what your strengths and weaknesses are. there is no way to fake it. there's nobody i need to validate me. my improvements validate themselves. and i feel weak... yet strong in knowing what my weaknesses are - because i know exactly what i need to target next.
life is beautiful and pure again. because my soul, the window through which i look at life, is free. pure. cleansed.
