I quit about 3 times this morning and started walking. Each time my body began whispering the sweet whispers we know too well, "You've already done enough. Nobody's even watching." My body was absolutely correct on the second part. I couldn't agree more. Being on earth has shown me that some the most valuable accomplishments require soul searching. The mental anguish that comes with running is good practice for having the deep convo ersations that life will force us to have with the person in the mirror.
Pain is avoidable. Disappointment avoidable. Failure is avoidable. How are all 3 avoidable? Easy. I quit on my goals. Neglect the ugly conversations I need to have with myself. But, the pain, disappointment and failure from not pushing forward is much worse than if I sincerely tried. So I'm trying and quitting over and over again until something cracks the sky. Until then, I'm going appreciate this process of growing as a person. I only get one chance at it.
