March Madness - Day 28


Believe in yourself! You are enough!

Tenacity.

Determination.
Commitment.
Passion.

Many of us set goals for ourselves. We start off strong. We're excited. We say we're ready. We make a plan to achieve the goal. We set benchmarks.

But then something happens.

The plan doesn't go the way we thought it was supposed to. We miss the benchmark.

What happens then?

Many of us second guess ourselves. We begin to question whether we set the right goal. We start to wonder if we're enough. We start to wonder if we have what it takes.

For some of us, our confidence is so shaken that we give up. We throw in the towel. We abort the mission.

But why?

I venture to say we forget who we are. We forget whose we are.

Truth is, nothing should shake our confidence. After all, Psalm 139:14 tells us that we "are fearfully and wonderfully made."

We were created for success. We were destined for greatness. We were born to soar.

No matter what comes up against you, stand firm. Be like a tree planted by a river. Be immovable. Bend but don't break.

Revisit your goal.

When you are tired, push.
When you are weak, push.
When doubt sets in, push.
When you are let down, push.
When frustration takes over, push.

Push past fear. Push past pain. Push past disappointment. Push past ridicule.

When you fight the good fight, you remind yourself of all that you're capable of. You remind yourself that your battle is not yours to fight alone. You remind yourself that you are enough.

          YES, YOU ARE ENOUGH!

Believe that for yourself. Others will be have no choice but to fall in line.

Happy New Year! I can hardly believe that we are at the top of 2019. That means we made it to another year. One of the things that I do at the end of every calendar year, or at the very, very, very beginning of a brand new calendar year, is take some time to reflect. As I spent some time reflecting on 2018, I specifically took time to reflect on my running journey.

It was such an amazing year. The highlights can be found on my running blog. In a nutshell, there were ups and downs. There were achievements and setbacks. But through it all, there was so many life-transforming moments. One specific date of reflection was October 30. It was a day of wounding, both physically and figuratively.

I had an evening event at work so I decided to start the day with a run. You know, I wanted to get my blood pumping early. The problem was that I waited late in the morning to start, so I decided to do a quick out and back 2-mile run. As I was nearing my finish, I was running at a pretty decent spe…
