This week I had one of those moments. One of those moments when you feel like you might actually be understanding what the world/universe or in my case my higher power (I call mine God) is trying to teach you. This is how it happened….
Daily I post a motivational type quote on my facebook page. I have been doing this now for about 2 years or more and usually it is because the quotes are something I need to be reminded of or need to think about for the day. On Wednesday I posted this quote:
This was to remind me as I embarked on my 12 hour + day of meetings to just take it slowly and you will make it through or at least I thought that was why I posted it.
Then while in my first of four long meetings a colleague gave a presentation and at the end of the presentation she had this same quote. That was when I felt like it was much more than a perseverance quote I posted on facebook because what are the odds. I had never even heard this quote before I posted it on Wednesday morning.
I really began to think how does this quote apply to more in my life? Over the past couple of days I have been thinking about it and trying to figure that out.
In my job which can be very overwhelming right now because I am basically learning how to run a million dollar business while running a million dollar business, I need to learn to take things slowly. Set up the right procedures and policies and not just try to put a temporary fix on the problems because that will not work. Also I need to not be so hard on myself. In reality, I have only been the Director for 2 months and the facility has only been open for a little over 3 months.
In my running, especially my marathon training, there is so much to learn. Yes I have completed 5 marathons, 10 half marathons and numerous other races, but I am nowhere close to where I want to be as far as how fast I want to be. I hope to get there but I know that it might happen in time or it might not. I need to enjoy the pace. It might be happening slowly but as long as I don’t stop at least I am making progress.
Ever have one of these (as Oprah calls it) Aha Moments?
