That’s what I asked myself last night when John Paul received his belt in a brief ceremony at the end of his regular karate class. I was struck by his determination, skill, independence, and character needed to reach this goal. His example set fire anew in my belly to stop pity-partying about my teeny tiny advances in running and blogging. Oh poor me I don’t think so.
Like him, I need to be persistent and trust that hard work will pay off. And, I need new goals with deadlines. Running a 5K sounds good. Writing and scheduling blog posts to cover inevitable calendar crunches sounds good, too.
Rewards sound very good. In place of a yellow belt, how about a race medal, posts published, and chocolate? Dark chocolate. Gourmet dark chocolate. Gourmet dark chocolate with nuts. Now, I’m getting somewhere.
So I’ll ask you. What have you earned recently? What are you hoping to earn soon? What stands in your way? I’m rooting for you!
Have a wonderful weekend ❤ ~~~~~~~~ Angie Mc
