Some days are like this. They start out slow with changes in plans. Then there is a turn and it all comes together. A moment of clarity brings everything back into focus. And, suddenly I remember. I remember how incredibly blessed I am. Today, that moment of clarity arrived, as it often does, in the middle of a run. The sun was shining so the planned tempo turned into LSD.
My smile grew as I felt my body find it's rhythm. Every worry, every concern drifted away. Each step reminded me of how much I have. Blessings flew through my mind as I reveled in the warm sun. The love of my husband and family surround me. A business that I love and can help others reach their potential. The ability to be able to head out for a run when the sun shines.
Every aspect of my life is blessed by God. He allows me to enjoy the life he has given me. Sometimes I become overwhelmed and the day to day struggles seem larger than the blessings. I begin to focus on those struggles and lose sight of what is true and right. Today I had 10 miles to remind me how truly blessed I am. I am refocused on those blessings. It is time to remeber the positive and leave the rest behind.
