"Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening when you'd preferred to talk". ~Doug Larson
“Watch your thoughts; they become words.Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.” - Frank OutlawI think the only thing I would've added to the second one is: Watch your friends, they become your future. (I know I've heard that somewhere, too, but not sure where.)
Second, a running update. Isaac and I are just finishing up week two of our From Couch to 5K program and
I have to remind myself often that I don't have to run as fast as my light footed 12 year old (or as far as my Mighty Marine.) I just need to do better than I did before - at my own pace.
I was a little discouraged after our first run when I realized
that at that rate it would take me 66 minutes to run a race
that the average person runs in 25. *sigh* But I have been tracking my progress and I have already cut that time
down to 53.5802446 minutes (not that I'm being particular
or anything). Seeing that much of an improvement in such
a short time really gets me excited and I am almost
convinced I can do this.
I won't be re-naming myself "Runs-Like-the-Wind" anytime soon but, eh, I'll get over it...
Have a great weekend!
