My own path (2014 - Blog #58)

"Unless it's your path, it's pointless to follow. But if it is your path, then, alas, it's pointless to follow any other." Harvey Arden
When I once considered doing an event like a 5k, I think my biggest worry besides how I would use a restroom along the way, was not finishing and looking like a fool. Neither of these concerns have since stopped me. I learned on my very first shamrock run..my first 5k ever, that the path I was on was simply said -my own-. I do not think anyone pays much attention to who is running, who is slowing, who is finishing... Each person on a race seems to be in his or her own bubble focused on his or her own path.
You know, what is so amazing about realizing you are meant to be on your own path is the fact that relief and comfort accompany you along that path. You arrive to yourself and allow yourself to fit into the footprints you have left for yourself.
Today, when I go out for an event, I am grateful that I really do enjoy the whole experience. I revel in the preparation. I take time to soak in the sights along the way. I am thankful for all the volunteers who make the events possible. I look at other participants and wonder about their path but I do not wish to be them anymore. I am only me and I think I have found my path.
Is your own path becoming clearer?
