60 Seconds for Motivate Your Monday: Take the First Steps to Wide Open Road
by Diane Wyzga | November 1, 2021 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you, Erlinda, listening in San Clemente, California!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds for Motivate Your Monday.
Long ago in one of the worst times of my life – no marriage, no mother, no job – I was assigned a Prayer Protector. This was a first for me, and I was a first for Erlinda.
In the beginning we shared coffee and conversation; but soon she decided we needed to run. I hate running. And so we ran.
I didn’t know that Erlinda was an avid runner and part mountain goat. When she took off on a hill I couldn’t catch her; but that wasn’t the point. The running was all about getting me to put one foot in front of the other, and keep moving; something I didn’t feel like doing. In time, that first mile became a half marathon. In time, I found a way back to myself.
Practical tip: Oftentimes the move we need to make looks scary, daunting, painful. What I learned is this: take those first steps anyway. The ones in front of you. Get them over with. Now you have open road. Follow that!
