Portrait of an Old Lady
See this old lady? I don't know how old she is, alot older than me and I'm 57. She is in a 10 day race and got 157 miles in the first 3 days. Awesome!
I hope to be like that in a decade or two.
In the mean time, I am entered in 3 multi-day marathons this year. And in two weeks, I'm going to try a 50 mile race. Strangely, all that has held me back from going to a multi-day marathon has fallen away. It seems like my blister prone toes won't be an issue.
I have been feeling unreasonably fantastic for about 2 weeks. I think it is because I learned a way to do daily "energy hygiene." That is, if the world is just energy, then I can keep my energy pattern free of negative accumulation. And keeping my pattern refreshed is my responsibility.
I feel better about publicly stepping a little outside the lines and feeling good about it; not guilty or shamed. I've my entire life lived outwardly inside the lines but inside been outraged by the lines. Now, I'm a tiny bit more daring. Like being more myself at work, displaying my natural personality. No more egg shells.
Like, this is not the world's most meaningful blog post. But I am posting it anyway. Maybe some day I'll be wise, but don't hold your breath.
