Have a Great Day
Once again, I find myself behind and completely without focus. I thought I would just go with it, though, and ramble a bit today.
I have been working on getting ready for our rummage sale, as well as wasting a lot of time on the internet. From conversations I hear among others, most people watch TV in their free time. I always say that I don’t have time for that, yet I easily spend three or four hours a night on my laptop, not accomplishing much except for sending and answering emails, checking the weather and the news, and scrolling through other people’s posts on Facebook. And getting upset with them because they don’t have a life. Yet what am I doing with my spare time? I know. Not much.
I’ve been running a mile three or four times a week, but really need to start upping that if I am going to run a 5K in less than two months. I don’t know what I was thinking. Well, actually, I was thinking that my heel would stop hurting by now or that I would find the time to ask one of the doctors I work with what I should do about it. The new heel orthotics I just put in my running shoes have not done too much. Maybe I am just too old for this.
Watching the Kentucky Derby this weekend was inspiring as always. It makes me think that I can do anything I put my mind to. I just have to push myself. Of course, I also was not purchased for one million dollars, my trainer is not paid a lot of money (or any, or exists), and my blood line doesn’t have a lot to show for itself except cancer, heart disease and dementia. That paints a pretty picture, doesn’t it?
But I still believe that anyone can do anything they put their mind to. It’s just a matter of getting up every time you fall. And listening only to those who would inspire and not to those who would run you down.
Now I am starting to sound like a country-western song, so I guess it is time to end this thing and save other ramblings for another time.
Have a great day.
