One Step at a Time

I'm about to go running with my best friend. I wouldn't have believed when I started this five months ago, that I would ever be at this point. I can run. I don't smoke. I'm going back to school. I have a job, working part time for an organization that I believe deeply in. My writing is going very well and I hope to have good news soon.

And it all started with a single step. Then another. And another.

Did losing weight and working out change my life? I could say yes, but I believe that it goes deeper than that. I believe that for all human beings it starts by making a decision to be proactive. Then continuing to make that choice each and every day.

And then confidence begins to enter the picture... if I can do this, what else can I do? The possibilities are endless.

There's a passage in the Bible that talks about renewing your mind and I think that is key. Hope comes from change, changes comes from risk, risk comes from faith and faith gives you the hope to risk again. I believe humans were made for change, women, with their ability to adapt and multitask, were especially made for change. The opposite of change is stagnation. I don't want my body, my mind, my writing or my relationships to ever stagnant!

SO I am off to run with my friend. What a change that is!
