You cant run a race when you’re weighed down, so I did some housecleaning. Emotions are real, but they are meant to be experienced and let go, not forever saved for posterity. And I have a race to run.
The new race begins Monday, and I will need as large a cloud of witnesses as possible. 🙂
I’ve got my shoes on, my supply of fresh water, and eye on the big yellow tape at the end. Figuratively, of course. So I am shedding the written reminders of past, temporary pain and preparing to run with endurance. Besides, I am planning to be selfish. I need every possible person I admire in the cheering section. This is an act of good faith that when I look up into the crowd, I’ll see all the faces I hope to see.
And I’m blessed with faces. Family, friends, and that one Face of the One who never fails. Who is With Me.
And as part of my pre-race, preparation, I’m celebrating with this:
That’s right people…I’m going red! And then I’ll be ready to run.
