An incredible surprise and some encouragement for everyone.

Monday, October 15, 2012

One of those surprises that take your breath away...figuratively and in this case litterely....went out for my walk turned right out of the driveway have only been that way once...encounter a hill keep walking...then the road kind of levels out...I'm just enjoying the beautiful day and the scenary but a few times I notice I'm breathing heavily I just think wow girl you really have to get back to
working out. So I come to the end of the road and turn around to walk back the way I came and that was when it happened. When I turned around I was just stunned by the incredible view...I was so high up it was as though I could see the whole valley...the mountains everything. Other than the first hill the climb had been so gradual I didn't realize I was climbing until I looked back and saw how far id come. Isn't that often the case with life we set a goal and we just keeping trudging along and we don't see any real progress till one day we are just blown away to discover all those miniscule often uncomfortable little steps added up and we are so delighted with the view from there. Anyway I probably looked a little looney on the walk back...wearing this insane just bubbling out of me and singing at the top of my lungs.....good thing I live in the country not too many people to Anyway was a reminder to me to keep on taking those little steps and to expect wonderful surprises on the journey.

    What a great view thanks for taking me with you. I agree totally with the small steps as well. It is really a surprise to see them. My daughter takes pics of me and I can't believe I've changed so much. emoticon
