This is how I'm feeling today.
Saturday night I went out with this pretty lady. It was a much needed girls night out! We went shopping and to dinner at Saul Good, in Lexington. Staying out until 2 a.m. with her was worth every minute of sleep I lost!
Want to know how many miles I ran last week? 0. Yes, you read that right. I did not run ONE time last week. I haven't done that in months!! That's not so impressive for someone who will be running 100 miles in less than 2 months.
I've been going through a lot in my personal life for several months, and last week had something else happen that just felt like a punch in the stomach. Honestly, it knocked me off my feet. Made me start questioning myself and my dreams.
I love running. There's not much else that makes me as happy. So when I realized I hadn't ran even 1 mile all week, I had to give myself a pep talk. (Am I the only crazy one who does this?)
Yes, I fell. That's ok, and that's to be expected. It happens to all of us. It's what you do afterwards that matters. Are you going to stay down and be defeated and crushed or will you dust yourself off, stand back up and keep going, even stronger than before. That's what I'm going to do!
Nothing will stop me from being who I am, and going for what I want.
I've often heard the saying "Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God". That seems kind of cheesy, until it applies to your life. I don't know what is in my future. But I have to trust that God knows. I have to believe that He has plans to give me hope and a future. When you don't know how to face another day, know that His mercies are new every morning. He says come to Him, all who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and He will give you rest.
Sorry that this is deep, raw and real. It's just where I am right now.
Onward and upward!! Now I'm going for a run!
