AYD - June 13, 2013 - I see the Road before me ...

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

I often revisit Mr. Emerson's words.  Sometimes for the reminder, and sometimes for the simplicity of truth.

I feel good today. 

My legs hurt.  My cardio is lacking badly.  I can feel the few pounds I have put on.  All of this before my inaugural  run this morning.

But I feel good.  Because within me was a want to get my butt in gear on my fitness goal, with consistancy.  So my Sandra helped with writing our schedule and this morning I honored that to her and I both and I got up at 4 to go for my first of many runs that will be part of my plan.

I did not do great, but I did better than I expected.  I did not call a cab to come get me half way thru.  I hurt but I was careful.  I was tired but I asked myself if I really was,  or could I press on to one more light pole before I walked for a bit.  I pressed on.

I feel good because I did it.  I started.  And to compliment the schedule, I planned ahead for my morning. I had my lunch prepared, my clothes laid out, and I did not feel rushed or pressured to haste thru my commitment.  I did not whine nor did I find myself mentally wandering off to an excuse to not do this.  I was actually in the moment.  Staying between the lines.  Thinking about my goals and how I might measure my gains.  I have identified my starting point, and it will be all Go from here.

I started my day off with a few steps toward a goal.  I was prepared and eased right into a comfortable transtion to work.  I put on new clean clothes for my special Father's Day time at my son's Preschool.  I have my tasks for work ready and feel no anxiety.  I have a fitness class tonite, right after Jaxon and Sandra tell me about their day and we play a little lego. I am enjoying the idea of it all.  It works.

I feel good.  With all my " I used to be able to..." , and my " I'm going to be able to..." tiny matters...entwined comfortably with my Here and Now comfort moments . 
What lies within me is calm....and it is speaking very clearly.

Good morning, great day.
A greater you, brings a brighter environment to all those around you.
