I don’t know about you, but I’m totally engulfed in the Olympics this year. I have truly enjoyed watching the games, rooting for the USA team and when Great Britain is doing well – rooting for them as well.
The sites of London and all of the United Kingdom have been spectacular. They’ve brought back a lot of heart warming memories and its exactly what I’ve needed.
I’m ready for the start of a new season – FALL! I’m ready to begin a new journey and to have a fresh perspective. This past weekend I did a lot of soul searching. This hip injury brought back a lot of old painful memories with in addition of not feeling worth it. Worth anything. That’s a hard feeling to hear, take, swallow, and push aside. I debated whether to admit this out loud and on this blog but it is the truth. I speak the truth.
I don’t know how I got to this point BUT it will not stay because I’m sick of feeling worthless. I’m sick that I allowed myself to get this far. Lately I’ve been more sensitive than I care to admit and lately have wanted to cry at the drop of a pin. But today I’m stepping forward.
I am forever grateful for my anchor, my support, and my best friend Mr. P. Its nice to have someone by your side who sees you at your worst and only thinks of you at your best.
One of my favorite friends said to me many years ago: “Continue to chase your dreams. It’s not always easy, sometimes lonely, but definitely worth the risk.”
RISK of admitting this.
RISK of showing my feelings but a RISK to feel better.
A RISK to be me.
I need have to be the best version of me – 100% of the time. I want to thank all of the Olympians showing this new perspective to me because they give it 100% of the time. I don’t know when this disease will attack full force again. I don’t know when I’ll stop walking, running, jumping, or have enough energy to take a shower, but I’m not going to let that be today. I’m definitely not going to sit around and wait for it. No more excuses. I have to give it my all.
Today’s video is a true testament to that motto – I have to give it my all. The snails gave it their all – regardless at how slow.
Did you see the bird that fainted? And the other bird giving him some air. HA HA HA HA HA!
I hope you had a marvelous weekend. Remember, be the best version of yourself. Give it your all! What do you have to lose? What RISK have you taken?
