Embracing The Changes In Life

Someone recently asked me about my running and how I currently feel about it. True, I'm not running 5 days per week as I have in the past. I'm not even running my usual 3. I think my new norm for awhile (maybe forever) might be 2 days a week.

How do I feel about it? I feel liberated. I feel like stepping outside of the model of runner to something bigger. Because I've said it before, and I will say it again, I am more than just a runner.
As I grow older with my family, I realize that life is constantly changing. I am constantly changing. And learning to embrace the change definitely makes for an easier transition. For probably the first time in my life, I am

Lift Your Eyes

It's no secret that I've struggled lately emotionally (Is It Me?) and physically with this entire hamstring thing. (You can throw self confidence and body image in there also.)

So when I had the opportunity to review Sky Spills Over by Michael W. Smith back in May, it couldn't have come at a more appropriate time.At first, my son and I loved the catchy tune, but the more I listened to they lyrics, the more I fell in love with this song.

There's a rose in the desert
Blooming red in the drought
There's a quenching rain
In the wings of the gathering clouds

Lift your eyes
Look to the horizon now
There's still a hope for us
Reach up from the dust
And call it down

That's when I had my aha moment -
with my injury, with my struggles of loneliness, feeling inadequate, and the list goes on and on. The words "Lift your eyes, look to the horizon now" really struck a chord with me.


As long as I was looking at my situation, that was all that I could see. But once I lifted my eyes, looked to the horizon, my focus shifted. I was no longer focused on my negatives. I was no longer concentrating on my issues and looking down. My shift in focus gave me the chance to see others.

So whatever your struggle (whether emotional or physical or both), I want to encourage you to Lift Your Eyes and look up.




There is hope...
