Lately, I have been feeling amazing!!! I have started the C25K program in earnest, I even got up at 4:45am this morning to do it because it will be too hot this afternoon. I have exercised every day this week, even going for a walk last night, not intending to do much, but ending up going for 35-minutes. I have never felt better.

I know that there will be ups and downs, but right now, I am on an Up, and I am loving it! I really have so much more energy. I am competing with myself, and I know I am equal to the challenge and can do it. I actually woke up a few minutes before my alarm went off, so I was ready to get up and go. It was dark, and the stars were still out, but starting my day in the quiet was pretty amazing. I would like to bottle this feeling of joy I have inside and give it to others.

It's amazing how a shift in perspective can completely change the direction you are going in. Starting believe in cans, not can'ts...that will never get you anywhere. I am going to leave you with my favorite quote- "our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. as we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
