as i was out walking this morning i was having my morning quiet time and thinking about my journey. so far i have come, yet so far i have to go. i've been down, up, and all in between but i've never really given up. i have wanted to more than once, but i just couldn't bring myself to give in totally. i guess that goes without saying. i have become addicted to my morning walks. i have now actually started running along with it. i run, walk, run, walk. works for me and i'm up to a half mile run. not much to some, but miles for others including me a couch potato for many years.
i have even challenged myself with jogging to certain spots before i stop and i enjoy that. for me this journey has been about getting to know me. not only have i lost a few pounds but i've come to know a new side of myself that i really like. i see things differently than i used to and i enjoy life now. i don't sit and wait for it to come to me. i get up and get it myself.
i have learned new things about my religous self, my physical self, and my mental self. where i once was always stressed and cross with people, i'm now more calm and i smile and am more pateint with my family, friends, and such. i can move mountains if i put my mind to it and someday i plan on it. maybe not in this lifetime but in the next. there is no stopping us once we find ourselves.
so as not to waste any of my precious time i will be closing now. i have a new life to get on with. so till next time i'm going to get there from here and if i don't i'd like to think i'm right where i'm meant to be. blessings to all.
