i) Today was sunny and not a cloud. You know what I did? I stayed in my basement. I need to be disciplined in job hunting. I don't want myself to have an excuse that I can train more b/c I am unemploy. It is all about time management and getting things done.
Between sending off resume left and right, I am preparing for interviews and following up. I just find a way to drop off tons of resumes at a time...let the cluster bombing begins :)
It is a bit ironic. When we are working, we all want Friday to come. But I feel I don't have enough time to get everything done. I wish Friday never comes ;).
ii) I can tell my legs are tired from the weekend training. Yesterday, I took an epson salt bath and went to the hot tub to do some leg stretches. Today I did some hill repeats on my bike. No sharp/injury pain. But they are definitely have that deep soreness that I haven't felt for a long time. I look forward to next week as it is my recovery week.
iii) As a Christian..can I be more encouraging and more caring? I still think about this quote:
Excellence can be attained if you care more than others think is wise, risk more than others think safe, dream more than others think is practical, and expect more than others think is possible. " - Author UnknownJesus taught us to turn the other cheek on the Sermon on the Mount.
"You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.' But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you." (Matthew 5:38-42, NIV)
Boy is it hard sometimes. To just forgive and even care when it is logical to not care. Especially those who irritate you or you just don't click. Or other actions where you feel it is totally sinful.
For me, I approach the same way as I do with training. Can I share the love of Christ even if my sinful nature is brewing inside? Can I take it to the next level? Can I care more when others think is wise??
