Interesting that I composed this blog first in my head during a run and then put it to paper over the last week and then my sister, who has gone through hell to find the heaven she is currently experiencing, posted this link: What About the Happy Now? She always says that the biggest lesson she's learned from Gary's death is that we have to stop putting off living our lives now right at the place we are. While the article refers to happiness, there are universal lessons in there.
Is any of this irony, or coincidence? I think not. I think karma knew I needed that. A huge reminder to not forget to celebrate where I've come from and not be so focused on the end that I miss the victories along the way. A great reminder indeed.
