You know, I got to thinking about yesterday. It is so easy for me to go into something with gusto and then crap out in the end. I did something yesterday that makes me so very proud of myself. I actually followed through with my plan of running this 5K that I am sure alot of you are sick of hearing about.
I registered for the race, I trained...sorta...for the race, I showed up at the race and I did it! I didn't talk myself out of it with some lame excuse. My son and I found ourselves about the only ones left downtown talking to folks we hadn't talked to in a long time. You see, we moved away from my hometown a year ago and Matt had not been to a Founder's day weekend inyears since being in the Air Force.
It just goes to show you that if you actually do something that you fear and dread, you are a better individual for it for doing it and you grow from it. I did it and I am proud.
ETA: I thought of this on my way to get groceries. I OWE A HUGE THANK YOU TO MY SPARK FRIENDS WHO STICK WITH ME ALWAYS! I LOVE YOU ALL!!!
