I want to be able to do things with them instead of sitting in the comfort of my apartment while someone else experiences new adventures with them because I'm too tired or too chickenshit.
And then there was this:
I watched it and I cried. Then, I did a search online for something that I had read before about starting from couch potato and training to eventually run a 5K. And then there were the voices:
"JOGGING?!!? I'm not even sure that's physically possible"
"You're just going to fail... AGAIN"
"Come on, a 5K?"
I watched the video again (and cried again). And I tried to replace the mean voices with a single mantra: "if you want to do it, all you have to do is do it". I don't know if it will work this time. I don't know if I'll quit again. I don't know if I'll disappoint everyone who is rooting for me. However, this moment in time is the only time I can affect. I can't go back and change yesterday nor can I know what tomorrow holds. But this, I know: RIGHT NOW, in this moment, I want very much to win this war.
