I stole this from Neoprene Wedgie's blog.
It does not matter how slow you go as long as you do not stop
For this week, I have done no exercise. None. My right butt is still healing and my chest is a bit sore (from Tremblant). The chest sore feels like a bone bruise than an actual muscle sore. Tomorrow, going to see the doc just in case.
I miss running. I miss the emptiness. I miss the quiet time I can have with myself and with God. The butt is getting better so by this weekend, I will be out and about.
Since this week I am being normal, I spent a lot of time on socializing. Meeting up with old friends and acquintaneces. Bonding and forging new friendships.
A glimpse of who I will become and reminisce of who I one was.
I read a blog I posted a year ago. A year ago I was looking for a job and I am still looking now. A year ago, I was working on my swim technique and I still working on it now.
A year came and gone and things haven't change. Or has it?
The pace is just a little slow right now. This doesn't mean there is no progress. So I haven't change my job but I have been making progress in my resume, my cover letter, my interview skills. I have made strides in to help the company grow.
Last year, I would congraulate myself for swimming 1,000 m. Now, I won't be satisfy if I don't get 2,000 m everytime I hit the pool. (hmm...2,000 m....that's 40 laps....drools).
There were times when I was intimidated by the chlorine. Now I crave it. Give me an hour of free lane and I am happy.
So there might be slow down in my life. I have to learn to distinguish the difference between slow down and no progress. It is easy to mix these two together. I am now making slow progress. One drip at a time. To fill a bucket. It will take days, weeks, months.
I have time. I have to match it with courage and dedication. More importantly, I have to have paitence and faith that things will work out and the bucket will be fill by July 22, 2007.
As I move towards July 22, there will be moments when I feel like I hit the ceiling. No progress. Nil. I just have to remember that it is just another slow down. And just like any traffic jam. Sooner or later it will clear up.
I want to give a thank you for your comments and reading my progress throughout the year. Life is a roller coaster :-). As much as I at times don't enjoy saying it, that's what makes life interesting. The ups and downs....
Have a great holiday everyone.
