What is it about life that causes us to change? Sometimes we move through life wondering what we could have done differently or what needs to change. My thoughts move towards the notions that certain aspects of our lives remain uncomplicated by life itself.
For me, the careful thought of knowing that it was time to change the way I viewed myself. The desire to change was perhaps the greatest driver in my life. I knew that at some point in my life I would wake up with the realization that “Fat Dave” needed to be put to bed, but I was unprepared for the battle to get back to who I saw myself as. I know that I have halted my diet (and that is a struggle to get back), but I crave to get back to the exercise.
As I stood outside my home away from home for the week, I looked to the mountains and in the hills I could see the cutout of a trail – a trail I believed I had run before. I realized that the trail which joins Thousand Oaks and Newbury Park can be seen from where I stood and I loved the idea of running along it during this break. Unfortunately, due to a cold I don't think that will happen.
As the dawn of a new year begins, change is inevitable. For me, I want to reshape my job role – reposition myself to learn more, acquire new skills and experience, and contribute more. At church, I want to bring more creativity to what we are doing – things that will challenge and cause people to wonder. And I want to lose another 50 pounds in the coming new year.
So. . .as the sun sets on another year, much has been accomplished, much is still left to be completed and new dreams will surface to take us into the coming year with vigor.
Is there anything you want to change?
