Welcome to 2016!
It’s been a while since I posted…
including some introspection (that can always be dangerous… haha!)
I started the year, asleep!
Yep, we made it to midnight on the East Coast and watched the ball drop,
then we headed to bed – the kids were done, the dog was done, we were done!
And, you know what, the new year came in even though we weren’t there to welcome it!
January started with some goals…
and some introspection…
and with one word!
I have done one little word,
for a few years,
but this year, I really let God talk to me…
and He clearly laid a word on my heart…
and, boy, has it already been quite the growth to embrace this word!
So, you may be wondering what my word is…
Well, it’s ENOUGH!
I have enough,
I do enough,
I AM ENOUGH!
This is huge for me as I am a person who struggles with perfection…
so much so that sometimes I am paralyzed by my fear of something not being perfect!
I struggle because I have always felt I wasn’t good enough,
that I needed to do more, create more to be ‘enough’…
but God is challenging me to see myself as HE sees me…
That being said,
I took a big step today towards embracing this…
Last year, I started a running log…
I knew what it was going to look like,
I had great plans for it,
But my own vision of perfection got in the way…
and I fell behind!
And then I quit – not running, just documenting!
But the other part of my ‘enough’…
I have enough!
So, 2016 rolls around,
and I am training for my second marathon,
and setting new PR’s,
and having a blast!
And, I wanted to document it… more than just online with Garmin…
but in my creative way!
But, I have enough – I have this beautiful pink journal with the fun washi taped edges…
and I was having a hard time justifying spending any money to pick up a new book.
But, I am embracing my word,
and starting over – in the same book!
And, you know what?
I LOVE IT!
This page just makes me smile…
it’s not perfect,
but it’s ‘my journey’
My Journey to a marathon,
and to ENOUGH!
