Realizing how blessed you are...

Friday, January 04, 2013

Just look around for a moment, or open your ears and you will find out how insignificant your whining is...

I was concerned about my race time not being what I want it to be... and today I did a WIC recertification for a young woman who is 2 months postpartum who had a stroke when she had her child in October. She is walking with a cane and her one arm is completely flaccid... and she is just learning to speak again.

I will run, but I will be grateful that I can run at all...

    Practicing the attitude of gratitude puts a spring in our step -- or sprint, as the occasion calls for.
Thanks for the reminder to be appreciative! emoticon

    And after reading that I will stop my internal whining and enjoy my run at 2pm. "Luxury Problems" as they say...
