As I think more about this it really changes my perspective. PERFECT=The American dream, 2.5 kids, a BIG house, fancy cars, and lavish vacations. Hmmmm....I had a PERFECT childhood. We travelled around the county in a Motorhome that often broke down. We played in piles of dirt searching for treasure. We ate off brand foods and wore clothes from the clearance rack. To you this may not be PERFECT, but looking back it really really was. We were HAPPY.
- Hmmmm Running Blog Tall Mom, how does this apply?
We will miss training days because our kids are sick, life got in the way, our legs are sore, our mind is tired or we just need a DAY OFF! We will run in the rain, the mud, the snow, the dark, the fog.. We will have stomach issues, low blood sugar and want to quit. We will fall short, have tough days and feel defeated. Our shoes will get worn down, t-shirts will reek like sweat and favorite socks lost or ruined with holes. We get blisters, black toe nails, and chaffing. BUT... we keep going, we lace up, we make it work, we find our own version of PERFECT though all the imperfections.
You chose what to focus on day to day. You decide to let the little imperfections ruin your mood. You can be HAPPY through the journey, look back and realize that the ride was pretty darn "FANTASTIC."
