The Battle Wages...
Tuesday, July 03, 2012
Yesterday I had terrific day and cruised into the evening with confidence that all would end well. Then at 9:30 I ate M&Ms with whipping cream. Whaaaat? Crazy! Lost that skirmish!
I didn't sleep well last night as DH is enroute to Rwanda so this morning when it was time to get up to run I had SUCH a BATTLE of the mind! In the end I got up 15 minutes later to prep to run, even though I was all by myself and could do whatever I wanted to. After downing my oatmeal I again had the battle in my mind...could I just "not" today? Could I somehow make up for it later today? The excuses and self pity flew fast and furiously. It's amazing how many alternative activities I can conjure up when in avoidance mode. :)
Then, I sensed the Push...so out the door I went and...what JOY to be met with unexpected cool air and pretty streaking clouds. This skirmish was WON. Will tonight's battle be won? I pray it is. In the end, The Battle is already won. May I walk in its victory.
May you and I have victory in this battle...one skirmish at a time.
