The track of life

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

I am sure people have heard of life being referred to as a track with hurdles that get in the way and may trip you up and make you fall down. Well. I think that is quite accurate as far as a description. Because you may be going good then something will come out of no where and you either stop or you try to get around or over it to stumble and fall. Well, you just have to keep going. Find a way around those hurdles. Just jump over those things that get in your way! If you can not do it the first time...keep trying! I have them! Everyone does! Even those fit thin people do!
Each morning I wake, the first thing I turn my brain to is motivating myself. God let me wake today. I will not take it for granted. I will fill my lungs with air, I will work my muscles and use my brain He gave me. I will show I am thankful to be alive. I will show my kids how to appreciate living.
The baby soft sands, blue waters, breezy, warm beautiful dream of where my husband and I want to go one day is Hawaii. Neither of us has been there. We have always dreamed of going. I have many fears to over come before I can fully enjoy everything Hawaii has to offer. I have much work to do on myself...and he does too...before hiking the beautiful terrain. I don't want to miss anything when I go there. That's right WHEN I go there. I am making this one of my ultimate goals. It might take quite a while...years... but I know it can be reached! I would say wearing a bikini would be awesome while I am there...but all these stretch marks and one wants to see that lol. I am actually proud of everything I have on my body. Stretch marks, veins, scars, and tattoos...are all a map of my life. I know it is not finished there is so much I want to add! What can be ugly to some is beautiful to me. Flaws and all because I know what I went through to get those things. And I am so much stronger and smarter for having been through them.
I appreciate the peaks and valleys of my life. It has given me so much, so many tools. Now is the time of my life I will learn to use those tools and master what they can do for me.

    This is a really good blog! I feel the exact same way! We all need to take pleasure and pride in the everyday things! Love our bodies as it is b/c it's the only one we have! So many people are striving for the "perfect star body" when not even their bodies look that way! I'm not the size I want to be but I'm proud of the body I have to help get me there! emoticon blog!

    I love it that you are looking at the grand scheme of your life! So many people approach health, wellness, fitness, and weight control as something they do one time, or that they learn once and then nothing ever changes. Not so. We need to learn something new every day!
