Blessed Beyond Measure?

To complain is to fail

Dear runner with lofty dreams, very sorry to hear about the recent injury (still undiagnosed) that has prevented you from maximizing your training in the final month leading up to the 2015 Masters Track & Field National Championships.

Here’s God’s advice:

Get over it.

To complain is to fail.

Count your blessings.

There are many.

By the time you finish thinking about all of them, your injury will be healed and there will be another race to run.

You’re welcome.

I am sorry you weren’t able to meet this one, but know that there can be more in the future!

In my prayers,

Thanks Bob. This is how i talk to myself and it is much clearer in this post that i’m talking to me.

In every post, this is the essence, even if it feels like i have things all figured out.

i do not have it all figured out. But the daily writing sure celebrates the platform of self-reflection.

Writing publically may be the best medicine ever invented.
