I've been struggling with my goals, with staying motivated, with getting out the door and on with things I know I should be doing for the last couple of weeks. And today, on a grey Saturday when I could have very well stayed curled up in bed when I first woke up, I jumped out from under the covers and hit the ground running!
In the shower I was singing. I haven't sang in the shower for a LONG time! And I suddenly realized I *was* singing and then truly just grinned about it. Something inside of me has changed back to how it was last year. I'm all excited about life again... I'm making right decisions, crossing off To Do items... energized. I'm doing things for me that I know I should be doing and I feel GREAT and excited about this journey I'm on. :)
I participated in a virtual 6K walk with other bloggers today for the Napa River Rock & Stroll to raise awareness for the Cope Family Center and prevention of child abuse. Last night, a Twitter friend, Meg Leever (check out her great card designs @LoveMegCards) told me about 8 year old Kerra Wilson who was killed by her stepfather in Nebraska this past week, so I walked in little Kerra's memory today and felt more empowered than I have in a very long time!
I will forever be grateful to my ex-trainer, Parker Robinson, who - when I was first meeting with him - told me that we would rediscover the athlete within me on this journey.
That athlete is here again. She raised her hand and waved at me today. I kind of recognize her!
Life is good!
Dream. Believe. Achieve.
