I firmly believe everything is an ebb and flow…much like the waves in the ocean. Good things wash ashore and give the beach the sacrifices of the ocean. I often wonder when I see a shell how far it traveled to get to shore. Miles? Yards? Feets?
So when you think of an ebb and flow, you must honor the fact there is good and bad. Positive and Negative.
I think I have been ebbing for quite sone time. Feeling pretty good about myself. Somewhat invincible.
Today was the flow. Helen.
I feel defeated. Shaken. Disappointed in my body.
But instead of focusing on the negative, I will focus on the positive.
Today reaffirmed my choice in gyms.
Thank you Jenna for running the end with me. Thank you for helping me find my breathe. And thank you for not talking, so I didn’t cry.
Thank you Dan for running with me too until the end.
Thank you Tim for meeting me at the landing of the stairs.
And thank you to the whole class that stayed with me and counted with me and cheered me on.
Even though I came in dead last.
I found my breath. I finished.
Always finish what you started…
