One thing I have realized through my journey is that it and I are unique. I may share experiences with others but only I have been through that combination of experiences. I also try to remember that what works for someone else may not work for me-whether it is changing my diet (I have to avoid bread and other carbs and soda because I have a difficult time stopping at one serving) or buying clothes (a-line tops do not work) or even doing a job (I am an excellent trainer but heaven forbid if you want me to do math in my head).

So why do I sometimes try to fit myself into a mold that is not me? Why do others try to do that to themselves and people around them? I know that I will never be the life of the party but if you need a ride home from the party I will be there. Yet I sometimes wish I was the life of the party.

I know that what works for you or my friend or my neighbor may not be the best fit for me. I have no problems with trying it (or deciding not to if it is to similar to something I have already done). Yet sometimes I feel frustrated because it didn't work for me. Some times I am happy for the experience (and done with it). Other times I have found something that works for me. I just need to remember this.

    I decided to run a marathon, it's what I want to do. Friends and Family think I'm nuts, but it's what's right for me right now and I'm going to see it through. Find what's right for you and see it through. Chase YOUR dreams, no matter how crazy other people think they are.
