Mijn persoonlijke uitdaging van dit jaar was om de marathon volledig uit te lopen binnen voor mezelf acceptabele tijd. Ik keek er tegen de monsterlijke afstand op. Een dag voor de marathon kreeg ik een mailtje van een vriendin met onderstaande tekst. Het gaf me meer motivatie. Tijdens de marathon besefte ik dat het lopen op zich net zo genieten is als het bereiken van de finish. Mijn wens is vervuld. Op naar New York!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We convince ourselves that life will be better after we get married, have a baby...... then another.__ Then we are frustrated that the kids aren't old_enough and we'll be more_content when they are. After that, we're frustrated that we have teenagers to deal with. We will certainly be happy when they are out of that stage.

We tell ourselves that our life will be complete when our spouse gets his or her act together, when we get a nicer car, are able to go on a nice_vacation, when we retire.

The truth is, there's no better time to be happy_than right now. If not now, when? Your life will always be filled with challenges. It is best, to admit this to yourself and decide to be happy anyway._

One of my favorite quotes comes from Alfred D Souza. He said, "For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin - real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, or a debt to be paid. Then life would begin._ At last it dawned on me that this was my life."

This perspective has helped me to see that there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way._ So, treasure every moment that you have and treasure it more because you shared it with someone special,_special enough to spend_your time...and remember that time waits for no_one.

So, stop waiting! until you finish school, until you go back to school, until you lose ten pounds, until you gain ten pounds, until you have kids, until your kids leave the house, until you start work, until you retire, until you get married, until you get divorced, until Friday night, until Sunday morning, until you get a new car or home, until your car or home is paid off, until spring, until summer, until fall, until winter, until_ you_ are off welfare, until the first or fifteenth, until your song comes on, until you've had a drink, until you've sobered up, until you die, until you are born again to decide that there is no better time than right_ now to be happy.

Happiness is a journey, not a destination!

Dag mag ik vragen hoe de marathon is geweest? Ik ben van plan om volgend jaar zelf ook te gaan.
