I have been reading quite a few 1 year aniversary blogs this week. It made me realise a few things :
I have had some impact on other people's lives. Colleen, Chris, Ken have been with me since the begining and are still around. Apparently I have helped them as much as they have helped me! Wow! Never realised that! Some newer friendships have helped also. Deb, Ennaid, Running-life and quite a few others. It just proves that we all need eachother to complete our personnal quests.
Some have dissapeared and it is sad... Karen where are you? You were such a great friend to have here. Hopefully you life is going as you want it.
After a year I can say I have learned so much about myself it is almost scary to see how disconected from me I was. I haven't lost that much and it doesn't matter. I never have felt that good physically since I was a young adult and was still playing Volleyball. I have learned I love running! You would have told me that a year ago and I would have told you "NO WAY IN ...!!!" . I have learned I need to push myself. I need to commit to myself. I have learned so many other things, but the greatest lesson of the year was that I don't have to do this alone, it is ok to ask for help and to need support from others. That was a tough one for me.
Now that I have registered for the Warrior Dash in Rawdon Qc, and apparently I will get to meet some of my sparkfriends there. It will be such a pleasure to meet with the people who have been there for me since the begining!
To me and my team!
