I’m seeing things differently today. Today, I have an entirely different outlook on what lies ahead. Partially, I think, is due to the fact that I experienced not only what I am capable of achieving, but how quickly it can all be taken away as well. Moreover, I have learned, the hard way, the consequences of not staying focused on my goals.
While sitting at my desk, my mind continually wanders to what my future may hold as I start my journey again. Before, I had goals of running races, competing in triathlons, and long bike rides with my friends. And even though I accomplished these goals, I never really took the time experienced them. I was so focused on adding these accomplishments to my list and bragging to everyone about them, I never too the time to appreciate what what I was doing and how it felt. This time, I’m going to pay attention to what I’m doing and try to write about the experience rather than the accomplishment.
Believe it or not, I’m excited about starting over and getting it right this time.
Thank you Del and Mare for this picture. A day hasn’t gone by where I missed looking at it and said: “Your damn right!!!”
