Feeling blessed and refreshed. It’s funny how my mind tightens when I’m getting my body in shape. With all of the technology that has us “checking in” and “sharing”, my workout is the one time when I can focus on my goals and the way to get them done. I thought about Buttacup as I ran today. She was always a ray of sunshine, smiling and happy. I thought about how she loved to ride and represent. I thought about how lucky we are to live, when so many of our friends and family didn’t wake up this morning. Life is too short to harbor grudges and have issues with family and friends. You never know when you will be called. And, I would never want some nonsense stand in the way of years of friendship.
I thought about my club, Steel Horses MC, and how proud I am of how far we’ve come. Any relationship worth maintaining will have challenges. We are by no means perfect, but we are strong as STEEL.
I thought about my Sorors of Sigma Gamma Rho and how great it was to reconnect with them this weekend. I thought about all of the excuses I’d given for not being an active member. I’d forgotten the standard of excellence that was expected of me. This weekend, my beacon was re-ignited and I am determined to come back to do my part.
I thought about my fitness, and how I’ve been slacking. It’s time to tighten up the plan and recommit to consistency. By the grace of God, I’ve been maintaining my weight loss. But, I need to step it up to get the loss I’ve been longing for.
I thought about my love, and how lucky I am to have her as a part of my life. She is wonderful. She’s excellent and pushes me to greatness. God has truly blessed me with a life partner. She is complete in all facets of what I wanted. I resolve to always love her the best way I can.
Life is made up of many moving parts. It’s hard to keep this machine working sometimes, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
