“People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous… Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they’re wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain.” – Jim Morrison
Jim Morrison died before I was born but his words are always so relevant that I feel like he just wrote them. This week I lost a few ounces shy of 2 pounds. This brings my net weight loss to 10 pounds. It hasn’t been easy – at all. I have friends that put in minimal effort – like starting a walking regimen or stop drinking soda – and lose weight. However, that has never been the case for me. And that’s okay.
This week I was reminded how I need to focus on consistency and endurance – not random Olympics. After a steep increase in walking and running in high temperatures at the beginning of the week, I ended up sick and sore. While in pain, I realized how alive I felt. I have been starting to unravel some spiritual mysteries about myself. Although I have been feeling physically weak, it has been a long time since I have felt this spiritually or emotionally strong. I am sure the physical will be back soon!
