I was in Istanbul this week. The Bosporous dividing the city but also the continents of Asia and Europe.
Old with new and beautiful contrast everywhere you go.
The legendary Runner Herb Elliott had a coach called Percy Cerutty that believed in training in beautiful surroundings. Beaches, dunes, and dawn breaking runs provided the soundtrack to cell shattering training regimes.
I love contrast as it gives you perspective, makes you thankful and opens up your thinking as well as your ambitions.
I guess in our daily life we can find opposites all the time to give us balance – to give us equilibrium.
In your sometimes hectic lives find time to give compliments. As the day gets ahead of you – stop and take a breath from the breathless lives we sometimes lead.
