It's so easy to loose faith in something that you have never experienced, to lose a dream because of doubt. Walking (or running) out of your comfort zone will not be easy and I am learning that now, there will be fear of the unknown, but I must keep pressing on. I must fight this fear and practice faith!! God promises are real and I must remember all that He has done in my life. I don't ever doubt God because His presence in my life is very evident, its believing in my ability and believing that I am worthy enough to accomplish a goal. I have time and time again felt like a failure growing up, so even now as an adult, the feeling of failure comes and goes. My husband has been very encouraging in this time and I have some friends that have been very encouraging to me, thank you to everyone who has encouraged me, I am very thankful to have such great friends!! So starting tomorrow, I am ready to attack this training plan!! This week is an easy week, I am running a 5k for Back on my Feet Atlanta on Saturday: http://atlanta.backonmyfeet.org/bomf-meaningful-miles-5k.html
I am really excited about this race!!
What are your dreams? What are some passions that never seem to fade, waking you in the middle of the night? Whatever they may be, they are there for a reason!! Go after them!! Don't lose the passion!!
