In September a friend and I had completed a 5k but I felt I could do better. I felt I hadn't pushed myself to complete as hard as I could have and so I signed up for another 5k just to see. Well, I not only completed the 5k in the amount of time I had set for myself, I shaved ten whole minutes off my last time! It was by far my best time yet and I finished the race five minutes faster than I had even hoped.
I'm so grateful for meeting and exceeding my goal. I'm grateful for the pride I feel in this accomplishment. I'm grateful that even though my friend could not make it this time I was able to motivate myself and push to do my best. I'm grateful for my best race time yet! I'm grateful for my amazing family who walked the race in support and celebrated my success with me.
What goals have you met or exceeded this year? How did you celebrate a goal well met?
May today remind us to celebrate our successes. May we push ourselves to meet the goals that are truly important to us. Have a beautiful day!
