So the other day I was doing something and ended up injuring my shoulder. I am not sure what did it exactly. But I am finding out that some of the workout activities I participate in should be labeled as “Things that were Appropriate before Age 40”, otherwise known as, “Things that should Never be Tried Again”.
Anyway, I tweaked my shoulder and impinged a nerve. After a few days in sling, we are on the way to mending. I could not type during that time, so if I have not commented on some of your awesome blogs for a bit, that is why.
During this downtime, I had some interesting opportunities presented to me- one of them being a new position at work.
Injuries and illness are wonderful times for self-reflection. I am not even being sarcastic as I write that. THere is something about the slowing down that injuries/illness impose upon us that cause us to see things for a different perspective.
Decisions had to be made during this time and I made them. I turned my back on one path for now, and chose another. And it made me think of the picture on top.
We all walk our own paths and sometimes we have big dreams we want to fulfill. I see this picture and I think to myself, “If you want to walk a big path, well then, you are going to need big shoes.”
None of us ever know how our decisions will turn out. But I think in each of us, there is a place that longs to grow and dream and achieve.
We many not fill out our big shoes yet, but we need to trust, we will grow into them.
