While wasting time on facebook the other night I came across a post from Josh Cox. As soon as I read it I knew the fact that I was up so late, was for a reason.
I have big dreams – HUGE – for running and for my life. I do not typically share them. Why?
I have always been a person who cared what others thought. Why?
I never want to share my dreams because I do not want to hear anyone, not even one person, tell me they are impossible. I do not want someone to tell me I can achieve it and then go behind my back and say I am crazy. I keep my dreams to myself.
How then if I care about what others think can I teach my daughter and sons to be themselves, unapologetically themselves, and not care what others think? Am I not one of the biggest examples in their lives of how they should live their lives?
I am 29 years old – why on earth do I care what people do or do not think about my dreams?
They are mine and mine alone.
From this day forward – I no longer allow myself to care what others think of my dreams. I will ACHIEVE them. How do I know this? God’s plan for my life is bigger and greater than mine.
Here’s to putting it out there and not caring.
I WILL go under 3:10 in the marathon one day. It may not be this year, or the next or even the next…..but it WILL happen.
Put yourself out there….What’s your secret dream?
