Here’s to another week of life, to the good that has come and the people blessed by it!
I’ve had my fair share of decent days this past week. Granted, the ebbs and flows had high’s and low’s, but every week from now until glory will be that way. It’s how life is this side of things. And that’s not bad. I think folks my age were trained to believe that challenges, discomforts, and hardships are always negative and to be avoided at all costs. As someone who used to work out 6 days a week with a solid regimen, I know that’s not the case. Some challenges yield great rewards; some discomforts force us to develop, and some hardship can be the catalyst that brings new strength. So, yeah, some things are difficult, but that’s not always bad. At least it doesn’t have to be.
Well, How am I Doing?
As I said in my debrief on Saturday, we are now halfway through the year 2018. I’m doing this post because I felt that a half-year’s reflection was warranted. So, here is where I stand.
I’m not going to go back and rehash my weekend debriefs and recall how I felt on each given Saturday. I just want to take a look at where I am now versus where I was in January. The reason I’m using this approach rather than an analysis of the week by week debriefs is pretty simple: I am looking at the long-term benefit of the things that I’m doing even if the week-over-week results were not always what I desired or intended.
