Training to succeed

Training to succeed

I’m in training right now.

Training my body to go long distances…to persevere even though my mind says stop. After the 20 mile mark my head starts to say enough…the 30 mile marker mind says keep going…the 50 mile mark and it’s slamming on the brakes in my head. Once I get to 66 miles my mind is playing all kinds of tricks on me, the adrenaline is lessening and the tears kick in. Who knows what happens at 100 miles!

Every ride I push a little harder and every day I succeed. It’s amazing what you can accomplish if you put your mind to it. The brain is a muscle just like my legs and the only way to make my goal is to try.

So how can I use this strength in my day to day struggles with Adoption and coming to grips with never having a biological child? Easy enough, just train. Day by day I’ll tell myself it’s ok, Don’t let go of the loss but let the loss make me stronger, use what I have gone thru to know tomorrow is another day, each day brings me closer and closer to the Daugher or Son I will love. It’s all in the mind, let it teach the heart to love someone not of your blood… and the healing will come.
