This past week was a busy one, full of sharing love with the family, spending time with friends, and working towards a new goal.
I have just started training for the mini-marathon that will take place at the beginning of May. It is something I've always wanted to do, but have never had the courage to try before. This year, I decided it was time. Because of my heart condition, I will be walking rather than running, but I am excited to add it to the list of accomplishments and have really enjoyed pushing myself the last couple of days.
The quote above really spoke to me when I came across it. Truth is, so many times I have felt a task, situation, or problem was impossible to solve. I wasn't confident, was afraid of what others would think of me, thought I might make a mistake and feel embarrassed. Because of this, I never put myself out there, didn't take risks, didn't believe that my dreams were possible to attain, and my goals possible to accomplish. I didn't trust or believe in myself.
I'm now realizing that anything is possible with the right attitude, persistence, faith, and hope. I pray A LOT, I take deep breaths A LOT, I talk to myself A LOT. But now, more than any other time in my life, I believe that "I'm possible"! And because of that, things are happening for me. I'm learning to have more patience, to live in the moment, and to believe that God has a great plan for my future...
