A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance. – Ecclesiastes 3:4
FINALLY ran 6.5 miles without my brace today and it felt great! Although my shoulder hurt because I fell down our icy stairs the other day. (Clumsiness is a real thing in my life, people.)
If I am forced to run inside due to asthma and ice, at least I can watch the Winter Olympics while I’m a treadmill warrior! It’s so inspiring to watch the athletes realize their dreams.
If you know anything about me, you know that I am high-strung and freak out about every little thing in my life. So when the women’s luge came on the treadmill tv, I tried to imagine what was going on in the racers’ minds. Were they worrying? Scared? Stressed? I know I would be.
But then NBC showed this video.
Kate Hansen is getting ready for the biggest race of her life and…she dances. Boldly. Without caring who sees. I was instantly jealous of her carefree happiness and freedom…then I realized, what is stopping me? I need to care less about what others think and focus on letting God’s bold spirit shine through me.
