WHEN YOU THINK YOU CAN DO NO MORE ~ GO THE EXTRA MILE!

Leap of Joy

WHEN YOU THINK YOU CAN DO NO MORE ~ GO THE EXTRA MILE!  I am sure that most all of you would agree that life is very tough at times.  Now more than ever we are all being stretched and tested in some very interesting and difficult times.

May I share what I hope to be a bit motivating for you?  Please understand that I share this NOT as a way to boast but to simply share that when things do get hard ~ you CAN do more and you CAN go the extra mile.

Over the past few months many of you have followed my posts concerning the large lung tumor that was discovered this past Spring.  You encouraged me and gave me the courage to keep going even when things were uncertain and very scary!

I would like to share that through all of the uncertainty, I never gave up and I kept looking forward.  Now, just two months post op and missing some of my lung, I am getting up and going the extra mile.

No, it is NOT easy and it is mentally and physically hard.  I challenge you all that no matter how bleak your future might look - you CAN go the extra mile!  You CAN beat the odds!  You CAN get up again.

This silly picture is me last Sunday at the final mile of my first race after my surgery.  I didn't even know if I would ever run again so when I saw the photographer I just leapt for joy!

NEVER GIVE UP!  GO THE EXTRA MILE!

That is very encouraging Paula.  In many cases the picture is never as bleak as it seems. And if you of all people can remain optimistic (before, during and after surgery) then who are we to complain.

Wow Paula, you are amazing!  I have recently starting jogging and at the end of my runs I don't have the energy to jump like that......yet.  I'm working on it! :o)
