Slow down. Curves ahead. Life, life roads and trails, often has curves. Some curves are so sharp if we don’t slow down, we veer off the road into a ditch.
It is important to watch the signs and look ahead to where we are going.
Today I saw the signs that I has missed.
I took off for a run only thinking that I would go about 2-3 miles as I had not run in months and my last run was crap. But as I moved forward and put one foot in front of the other, I realized that I was doing ok. I was running again. Do not get me wrong, it was not an easy run by any means, but it felt good.
i kept moving forward feeling stronger with each step and as I ran, I realized that I was coming back to myself.
The last few months have been hard. Harder than any marathon or race I have ever run, and while I know that race is not yet over, I can see the finish line. I can see that light at the end of the tunnel. I have had the support of a lot of good people and I know that they see and feel my pain. For years, I have been the cheerleader…the motivator… Suddenly that changed and I could barely breathe without crying. It was not a place or feeling I was familiar with. I felt like a fake….going though the motions and smiling through the pain. But my friends took over. People I knew took over. People I barely knew and some I didn’t know I touched took over. They supported me in words and actions that helped me feel supported and loved. I have never been one to take things or ask for help….it is not a space in which I am comfortable. I did not need to ask….People just showed up. People sent me messages. People prayed.
Today during my run, I was caught in such a place of deep gratitude for every one of those people. They may never know how much their support has meant to me and changed my life but today I gave thanks for each one.
 I am so blessed to have a support team that helps me see the light….
