This was on top of one of my favorite mountain trails. There is a bench atop the lookout and I decided to put my feet up and close my eyes for a moment to reflect. I was going to hit gym and the trail today, but I am still feeling pretty funky and depleted from not being able to eat much the last couple of days. So I am taking another day off to rest and recharge. Anyhow, back to the tootsies. I remember the first time I made it to the lookout after my heart stuff, I thought I was going to collapse. I felt amazing because I had actually made it. But a little anxious too, everything hurt and my legs didn’t feel like they wanted to hold me up anymore and I still had to get back down. Thoughts of having to be airlifted out of there (there is no other access for rescue) did cross my mind. Now after countless setbacks I can run up to the top like a boss! And I am ever so grateful. Don’t you see? You can do anything you want to do. So set a goal and just keep putting one foot in front of the other, keep moving forward. It may, or may not take a while, but I promise you, you will reach that goal.
Until next time, always be true to yourself and think like a boss!
