Waiting and Doing

Posted by Patricia on Friday, July 22, 2011

For the past month or so I have been waiting for something to happen during my training; something cool or interesting, or just unique so that I would have something exciting to write about.  I’m a pretty stubborn person so as I have been “patiently” waiting these past 3 weeks I kept doing my runs and stretching, I went on a week-long family visiting tour around the Southeast of the US, and am taking (most of) the month off from work.

And what do I have to show for my “patience?”  Well, I hope you’re not disappointed but all that happened was I got more in shape, I have some fun pictures of my daughter and family to put up on facebook (if I ever get around to it), and feel more rested and am getting a healthy dose of what it feels like to be a stay at home mom (I think I like it J).

I’m sorry that it took me so long to realize that I don’t need something super fantastic or amazing to write and let you know things are going well.  I hope you learn from my experience that even if life seems a little mundane and you are working hard to achieve your goal (or several goals at a time), you are still going somewhere and getting closer to having what you desire.  And you are learning and experiencing life in a new way than when you were'nt sure what you wanted and you wished someone would tell you what to do with yourself. 

The way I see it is that as passion turns into goal setting, then applied and set forth in our lives on a weekly basis, this turns into an abundant life that is contagious.  The journey that we are on is happening whether we pursue our passions or not – my desire for me and you is this: that we set our hearts to live intentionally.
