Do you ever have times when things don’t turn out quite as expected? You thought it would be one way, but it turned out to be another way all together? I’ve had one of those experiences today.
I’m not as tired as I expected to be. It’s been a busy two weeks. Along with my 100 Day Strong goals, I have been a part of a large Christmas production at my church. We have had rehearsals almost every day for two weeks. We then had 8 shows over 5 days.
It was a wonderful success, but after all of the hard work, I expected to be exhausted. I am tired, but in a very content way. In some ways I am surprised. How did I get here and not be worn out?
I have made it through this time successfully for two reasons that I would like to share:
1. The work I have done over the last 91 days has given me more energy and more endurance and I have had many years. I can go longer and further than before. I can’t even begin to describe how thankful I am for this.
2. Being a part of some thing larger than yourself is an awesome experience. There is a certain high that comes after you finish the job that is very rewarding. I’ve had this feeling after running a half marathon, and also after performing and shows. I prefer performing in shows. My shins don’t hurt as bad.
There is also reflection that comes after participating in the show like that. You get the opportunity to be around amazing people, and to share one-of-a-kind experiences. I am thankful that I got to be a part of it all.
So, here at the end of the day, I am finishing up the last few things I need to do. I am tired. I am happy. The goals keep moving forward. The finish line is in sight. #finishstrong #keepmovingforward
