A Time to Rest and a Time to RUN - Bring it ON!
"There are two ways to face the future. One way is with apprehension. The other is with anticipation" Jim Rohn
Riding the wave....choosing the low to anticipate the high is such a good feeling! My month of December of rest is coming to an end, and it feels so good to have had some "zen" runs as some of us call it (Karen!) , or a WoaNellie(Ann!)- to let go of the watch, time, when I run, if I run, how I feel when I run, on and on....a month of if or if not doesn't matter. Getting in to thoughts of where I am and where I want to be. Looking in can now be activated to the OUT....and time to get OUT! Time to set goals and have a plan.
So, January is the common time for looking at the past and planning for the future. It is a continous of a nonstop journey of growing and learning, of falling and getting up, of moving forward and stepping back, pausing and pursuing. Looking back at your goals of 2011 - how many were achieved? How about goals that were never thought of accomplishing were pushed beyond to bigger goals? How about goals that were put on the backburner? You are your best experiment and your best teacher.
What amazes me is all that can be accomplished in a years time. All that can change. So now we are almost at the beginning of 2012. What do you see for this next year? As in races, I like to have the 1,2,3 method or the A, B, C (backwards from grading!) A- achievable B -beyond imagined and then there is C- courage-super strength.
"You are never to old to set another goal or to dream a new dream" C. S. Lewis
One thing we have absolutely no control of is TIME - and it ticks away...if you want to do something, start now - if you don't start your "journey" you will never see all the side trails that may come out from the main roads. And side trail, single tracks...are my favorite.
"Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts" Winston Churchill
What goals are awaiting you?
