It does not matter how slowly you go, as long as you do not stop. Isn’t that a great lesson? I found this quote online and it totally hit home today.
I walked a lot on my run this morning. There were steep inclines I hadn’t gone up in a while. My left arm still aches from the tetanus booster I had this week. My right shoulder and arm are still weak from my fall and I’m nervous about what today’s MRI will reveal. But! My legs are still strong and they still carried me four miles. Granted, those four miles went by a lot more slowly than usual, but the important thing is I did not stop. I kept moving forward. .
Life is hard. Maybe you’re not where you want to be. Maybe you’re struggling with finances or weight management or mental health issues or faith crises or teenagers or any other number of things. You may feel like you will never get to where you want to be. But are you still going? Slow, fast, it does not matter. Just keep moving forward. You can do it. You are strong and you will overcome any challenge. Oh, And don’t forget to enjoy the view along the way (I saw five deer this morning! Sorry the pic is so fuzzy) 😁
