"Even if you fall on your face, you're still moving forward."
I woke up this morning at 5:45 to the sound of rain. As I lay there slowly coming to life, I thought, "well its raining and you think you are a runner. So are you going to get out of bed and run in the rain, or roll over and try to snooze some more?" I got up and ran.
Not only ran but loved jogging in the rain. I'm going to be soaking wet after my 3 miles anyway, but with rain it is so much cooler. My wife thinks I'm nuts but she will think that anyway(with some justification-just not as much as she thinks-ha).
Saw some friends and acquaintenances today and one told me that I looked like I felt good and was is a good mood. I said "you're right I do feel good, I'm in a great mood, and I love it". Since turning over the "It's NEVER too late" leaf, my mental state has vastly improved. I still have problems to deal with but it really seems to be easier.
Call it a positive attitude, a product of physical activity, or psychological mumbo jumbo; I am handling life better and enjoying it more.
