Monday Motivation-Don't Quit on Yourself
Yesterday was my birthday. I had 15 miles on tap and it was less than 15* outside! Most would look at those three things and say....boy this bed is looking great I think I'll stay! Nope....this running momma thought...What a better way to celebrate!
The breakthrough came for me as the miles ticked by and I started to mentally grow tired. I started repeating Isaiah 40:31 to myself and "Do NOT quit on yourself!" Over and over for the last 3 miles reminding myself that I AM strong enough and I AM worth finishing what I start! I did not quit on myself and finished my 15th mile at a 8:56 pace!
There is so much that happens to us that is out of our control. The part that we can control is what we do after it happens. We ARE strong enough and we ARE worth finishing what we start! If you are on that brink of throwing that resolution aside or are facing something that you doubt you are strong enough to finish.....BELIEVE in YOURSELF and please DON'T QUIT!!!
