Dreams Keep Us Alive...
I have long been a fan of the dream board. It has my favorite sayings, places, images, bodies, activities, whatever it is that strikes my fancy, or that I dream to accomplish.
It is in the place where I get ready for work every day, and I look at it each morning as I get dressed. Sometimes I focus on one thing more than the other. (I have several images of wedding rings, and I seem to keep skipping over these, even though it is my ultimate goal...)
Despite that, I am happy to say my dream board is ever changing. Once I accomplish a dream., I replace it with another.
I have accomplished so much on my dream board, but most recently, the two "13.1" images have been removed, because I have finally accomplished the half marathon that I only thought I could do because it was on my board.
If you don't have a dream board, what are you waiting for? I was skeptical about it several years ago too, but that's before I decided it was at first, just a fun project, and since then it has turned into so much more!
This weekend, I finally hung up my race medals, and bibs above my dream board.
No, it does not represent ALL of the races I have done, because they don't all give out medals or bibs.
It is, however, a reminder that among all my other dreams I have, my body has done more for me than I ever imagined it could do. From barely walking for 20 minutes on a 0 incline on the treadmill...to a half marathon!!
I run a bare minimum of 20 miles a week, and I never in a billlion years thought I would be "that girl".
But here I am..smiling all the way!!
