A huge step

Sunday, July 25, 2010

I took a huge step...at least it was for me. I really wanted to do the Otters "Start inside the Ballpark" 5k. One as a way to close out year 52 and usher in 53. I've never participated in a race that I didn't have someone going with me or that I knew would be there. Today that changed. I participated in and finished the race.

I feel that I've accomplished a major milestone. At least it was one for me. I don't go places or do things by myself. I don't even go shopping by myself. There has to be someone with me or going to be there that I know. Not sure why. I just is.

Today I put an end to that. I can do things without other people being there I know. I can go places with someone being there that I know. I proved it to myself. Today I was the only one that matter. I did this for me and me alone. I proved to myself that I can and I'm able.

Now I'm off to take a shower. I'll post the official time when there posted online. I finished somewhere around 52 minutes. emoticon

    Oh!! Your blog reminded me of someone I know real well ...myself.
    I was the very same needing someone with me in order to do things.On the day that changed I had never felt so confident or empowered in my life .And guess what? That feeling has stayed with me still and has opened a lot more doors than I ever thought possible.
    So to you I say well done !! Keep looking forward.. for now you won't ever want to go back to who you were and I know those doors are opening for you!!
