Each one of us has his or her share of challenges and predicaments in life. Whether these challenges present themselves in our personal, family, friends, work or health arenas the question is how we choose to view and handle these situations. ATTITUDE is really the key to this labyrinth of thoughts! As retired football coach, Lou Holtz once said: ‘Ability is what you’re capable of doing, motivation determines what you do, attitude determines how well you do it.’ Having been joggling with too many thoughts, concerns, challenges and fears these last few months, attitude, positive thinking, as well as envisioning optimistic outcomes have acted as determining factors for my sanity and contentment. After all, when you are blessed with health, everything else is truly manageable. And when the going gets tough, I thank the Lord for my running as a vigorous run always helps me see life with a different eye- amongst many other benefits. Yesterday was just one of those days when my body, mind and soul were desperately seeking solace in a run. As I put on my running gear, my mind was saturated with just TOO many thoughts and worries. Yet, the minute a friend of heart shared with me a health challenge, everything else just dissolved and went into pause. I had to run and bring into light my best of energies for my friend. And so I did… I began to run through the breathtaking setting of Athalassa park (which by the way is celebrating Spring in all its glory just a wee bit early). It was just me and lovely nature, breathing in the fresh air, relishing time alone, feeling refreshed, focused and rejuvenated. And just right there when I began to chase that gorgeous sunset, I immersed myself in that magical splendor and let go of every thought, every concern and every fear. The words POWER and FAITH echoed in my heart and I knew right there that everything would be fine. I dedicated this run and its splendid energies to my friend of heart… The photos are of Athalassa park- a magical place which never ceases to amaze and rejuvenate me.
