I may be making running sound more glamorous than it really is. But as I run I like to make it a thought provoking time. I like to be my own therapist (when I run alone) and counsel myself in my current events.
Today I learned something as I ran.
It was a rather muggy day, and pretty hot too. If any of you run than you know after a distance you will start to drift a little to the right or a little to the left on the trail. This particular trail runs along a river and as I thought about how nice it would be to fall into the river "accidentally", without me noticing I would find myself close enough to actually fall in. I thought about how powerful the mind is and how much our thoughts can help us or drown us.
This lesson helped me want to keep my thoughts cleaner because I don't think i realize how many thoughts I might entertain subconsciously and how they are bringing me closer to the edge "with out me noticing it."
I am going to be better. For my family, the Lord, and Me.
