Strength

26 08 2012

Sometimes you don’t realize just how strong you are until you’ve been tested to the limit.We don’t give ourselves enough credit for how much strength we have inside of us.
I am completely surprised by  the amount of strength I’ve been able
to exhibit,after a few unfortunate events.
It always works out in the end.No matter how bleak,dark or uncertain situations may seem,I know that there is a little store in my being that contains this strength.
May the Lord grant me strength and grace to deal with life’s challenges.





I feel like a gazelle…

That’s exactly how I feel when I run.

I’ve been making  excuses(it’s too hot,I’m busy,I just don’t have the time etc) for not running.Today I decided to change that and I felt pretty good about going out for  a run.It’s  a very refreshing feeling,very freeing and empowering in a sense.

The boyfriend has been encouraging me to run and I always come up with a quick excuse not to.I’m glad he was persistent about it because I finally got around to doing it.

I used to run in primary and  high school.I was one of the best runners in the 100 meters,relay and 200 meters categories.Even though this was primarily for competition,I still loved the emotions I experienced after running.As I ran down the road today,some of those emotions came back and they took me to another place and time.They reminded me of  why I started running in the first place.

I love the way my feet pound the pavement,the way the  wind blows in my face and the way the sun teasingly burns my skin.I hope I can keep this up and build on my endurance and strength.
