Just a thought or two today on Perspective. I was at Long Hunter Lake walking and started thinking about the many different looks this trail has had in the last 15 years sense I started walking here. This is the trail head.

Here is a picture of the lake today

Hear is a picture of it a few days ago
Both were taken at almost the same place but looked so totally different. Who looking at that body of water would think about walking around it for exercise. Just looking at it you would think it was way to far to walk but yet the trail is only 2miles. I wonder how many times I missed out on the something wonderful God had in mind for me just because of my perspective. I have walked 2 half marathons which amounts to 5times around this lake yet I would never have thought about walking this trail 5 times in one day. I wonder what else I could do if I just did it without thinking it to death.
Its time to start thinking about my weight loss in the same way. I need to quit thinking about how far I have to go and just START where I am at this time and keep it all in the right perspective.

    Yes it is part of Percy priest lake. I know of at least 3 trails there. I have walked 2 of them. The 3rd one is 4miles one way and very rough. Have thought about doing it some weekend just haven't gotten to it

    It looks like the water level went way down. We live near Old Hickory and it is so apparent when they let water out of the dam. Is Long Hunter connected to Percy Priest? We have never walked at Long Hunter. I heard it has a bunch of trails.
