From Hate To Love

Just a self-reflection today…


Important to me. 


It’s about who I thought I was and…


Who I became. 


Truly, I went full circle from a child’s hate to an adult’s love relationship with:


– Reading


– Writing


– Swimming


– Hebrew


As a kid, I tried to avoid these like the plague, and as an adult I like to practice these every single day of my life. 


I wonder to myself is it that I strove to become good (or decent) at what I have previously been bad at or was somehow afraid of. 


Yet now, they are integral to my life, learning, and growth. 


Like the hands of a clock that circle and tick the hours and minutes. 


My life takes me full circle and brings me home to who I am and what I really love spending time at. 😉

You Can Overcome It!

I like this runner’s shirt a lot. 


It says:

Courage is endurance for one moment more.


Just when you feel that you cannot go on for another moment.


Just when you are at your very limit.


Just when you’ve reached your total breaking point. 


Then…


You take that deep breath and focus your mind intently. 


You disassociate yourself from the pain and struggle. 


You see the challenge in front of you for what it really is and you raise yourself above and beyond it.


Your inner spirit is so much greater than its power over you. 


You have the inner faith and can endure whatever it is. 


You can overcome it! 😉
