I’ve Got Something…

I have this interesting thing I do when I am done exercising.  But, I only do it when I am just in need of a little push, and today was one of those days.  I woke up, walked to a nearby set of stairs, and just ran up and down, well, more like walked briskly and the number of stairs I will not disclose in order to keep some dignity.  Jaja.  But just when my legs felt as though they couldn’t hold me up any longer, I didn’t sit down nor did I walk home.  Instead, I quickly made my way down a somewhat steep hill.  I turned around, faced it, and sprinted as fast as I could up to the top of the road.  I caught my breath and then walked home.  

You see, just when I think I am done, when I’ve spent all of me and have nothing more, no strength, no energy, and sometimes no hope to keep going, something inside kicks in.  And I need these reminders.  Whether it be physical, emotional, or even mental, that little bit that I can still dig out of me when I think there is nothing left… that little bit keeps me going.

This simple reminder that I do might sound small and insignificant.  But for me, it changes my perspective, it keeps my confidence in knowing that what HE has placed in me is more than enough.  I’m not going to be discouraged, I’m not going to lose hope, and I’m not going to be stopped.  And if I have to keep reminding myself of that by simply sprinting up a steep hill when I’m totally and utterly exhausted, than I will…

So, what in your life is trying to hold you down, what in your life is trying to stop you, but most importantly…what are you allowing to stop you from being you, doing what you know you were created to do,  just moving forward?

And if for some reason, you can’t seem to find that little bit within you, I’ve got some to give…Take mine…
