Let me preface this by stating that although the following is of a serious nature, I am not usually this stern.
My GOAL is to COMPLETE a marathon via any means necessary, whether it be walking, shuffling, jogging, or crawling. It is my HOPE that by partaking in this journey I will in turn positively change my life.
Someone once told me that I have an "artist's" personality, meaning that I'm either black or white, one extreme or the other. I would pretty much agree with this. When I start something I am 100% manic about whatever it is. Then, once the novelty wanes, I stop. For example: I eat really healthy for a few weeks and then I eat very poorly. I eat nothing or I eat a ton. I run for a few weeks and then I sit on the couch. "Everything in moderation" holds no meaning to me.
That is why I set this LONG-TERM goal for myself. One cannot train and complete a marathon in a few weeks, it takes months. My belief is that if I can finish this I can do anything! One huge change I want to make is with regard to my job. I desperately need a job that I actually enjoy and can contribute positively to society. I am just not sure what it is. In reality, I'm probably just too lazy to find it. Therefore, on my daily shuffles and walks I want to contemplate my life, where I am and what I want to do. Maybe God will give me an idea or point me in the right direction sometime in these coming months of training.
So, there it is. I hope you will share in this journey with me.
