A few years ago when I did a 10km fun run, I saw a sign held high by someones supporters. It said.....
That sign made for someone else got me through the run. You see I hadn't done much training for running and although I was 'fit' I wasn't running fit. And it hurt. I got chaffing and was tired. I knew I could do it, but I could feel the pain becoming more real than the want to do it.
And then this sign came up and it made me realise that in less than 30 mins I'd be finished and my pride in doing something I hadn't done in a while would be far greater than the pain I was feeling right then (and it was!).
And the funny thing is that this sign has stood by me alot longer than that run. I often think about those words when things get tough. When the pain is greater than the want to keep going. And it helps me realise that it is possible.
Don't worry though! All is good. I'm feeling fit after my walk this morning. Healthy after the food choices I made yesterday and my soul feels full after spending time with my friends and family over a very fun and busy weekend. Life is good.
But this morning as I was trawling through Pinterest and saw some other 'words of wisdom', I really wanted to share something of me with you guys. Hoping that perhaps these words might help you, like they've helped me.
Have a GREAT day!!!
