Some days...

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Some days are challenging ones. I got myself two of them back-to-back this week.

Fear and worry: they are what we make of it. It is easy to tell others that it will all be okay, but even harder to tell that to yourself. I know life is a journey and that which doesn't kill us makes us stronger and all of that, but there are times when life just doesn't seem fair. But the thing with fear and worry is, neither if them breathes or has a heartbeat. They are inanimate and are only fueled by our own thoughts and emotions.

I'd be lying if I said I go through life with no fear. Sure, I may appear "fearless" and am quite daring in many regards. However, truth be told, I have a lot of deeply rooted fears and have to face some of them tomorrow.

All athletes and individuals in life go through this-- when their body just seems to fail you. It's frustrating, it sucks, and it is scary; but it's a reality. I'm grateful for those who care and express support, I'm not one who thrives on sympathy, but if you get a change to send some positive vibes my way, or say an extra prayer, send a smile or a hug if you happen to see me, that would be appreciated. Here's to hoping for some answers tomorrow!

"...do your best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious - the best, not the worse; beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. ...God, who makes everything work together will work you into his excellent harmonies." - Excerpt from Philippians sent from a friend earlier today
