I had a long workout today. I thought I could do a circuit. Started on a recumbent stepper, then walked on the treadmill, finally went for a cool-down on the track. I realized my ankle isn't healed enough for that. The uneven floor got to me quickly. I did three laps, and then decided to go back to the recumbent stepper, which was what my PT recommended. Oh, well, at least I had a great workout today! Plus, I can still rack on the miles outside, just not on the track at the YMCA.

Just Believe!

I am glad that you were able to work through that, and I bet your family is too. I went through a period of discovery in the 80's and another short one in the 90's. I have been pretty focused since then. I know that by summer I will be where I need to be physically. Hopefully everything else will fall into place too.

So true. I had to take a pause in my life many years ago. I realized there was no point of involving other people in my life. I had to learn who I was, I didn't know. I followed every whim and tossed with every wind.
It was when I decided what I liked and understood why, even if it was just my taste or style. Everything from food and drink, music, dress and whatever. This took about 8 years for me. Then I began to let other people in my life liking and loving them.

Ponder the path of thy feet
And
Let all thy ways
Be established. Proverbs 4.26

I think sometimes we have to set ourselves aside so that we can learn who we truly are.

I will have to listen to that song a little closer. I love Mercy Me, they have beautiful, rich voices. It will be worth focusing my attention to their sweet music. Thanks for your thoughts. I can only hope.

Wonderful movie and a great thought either way. I've thought about the statement before when hearing it in the movie. It's true. The train being the metaphorical next step we face. But I never thought of it as a dream before, interesting.

What dream do I have that is waiting for me to get on board?

Funny how we hear something that was not said, but remain so true. The Mercy Me song "So Long Self" came from the same happening. The statement was so long Jeff. Look were that went.

Ponder the path of thy feet
And
Let all thy ways
Be established. Proverbs 4.26

I made a metaphorical mistake tonight. I was working and listening on the side to "Polar Express". At the end of the movie I heard, "The thing about dreams... it doesn't matter where they're going. What matters is deciding to get on." Of course, I realized the conductor actually said trains, but as I did I realized that either way it doesn't matter where they're going. I still have to decide to "get on".

and he will make straight your paths.

There are two types of commitment, either you're in or you're out. There is no in between.


Not sure who said this (if I find out I will post it).
