I haven't written in forever. Summer has been crazy! I will post more about that at another time. What I wanted to include today is a link to this blog post because it kept me motivated for today. I love the first few paragraphs of this post. As I've been training for my upcoming 3 Day walk in Atlanta, I've gone through many ups and downs with my emotions about the event. Most of it is excited anticipation, but sometimes I get a nagging doubt about "can I really do this?" Well, I have come to learn that it really doesn't matter if I actually finish those 60 miles or not, but about why I'm there in the first place. I have placed a huge amount of pressure on myself to complete the 60 miles, and I know some of my family and friends really want me to finish it as well. But I'm honored just to be going at all! I've now reached my minimum amount needed to participate ($2300) AND I've also reached and surpassed my goal of $2500! I'm so very blessed. I read as a status on Facebook today: "Walk strong. Walk happy." I love that! I've been needing a mantra to keep me going, and that just might be it.
More updates to come...go be a blessing!
