Today I was nearly blown over. No really, blown over. The winds were so strong (30-40mp) gusts that my afternoon trail run turned into a game of human pinball.
I felt so out of control and really had to fight against those winds in order to just keep still and upright. Fight to keep still? Does that all sound familiar? It does to me. All week I fight to keep my stillness, my structure, my routine. Yet when the winds of life take full force, I go head first into those gusts which leave me windblown and worn-out.
How do we protect ourselves from this? How do we dodge those winds? How do we build up stamina to hold strong against it? Am I being too “rhetorical” here? haha.
Let’s reflect on that….
Last Friday I talked about taking some time to rest, recover, and regain strength. But what it all boiled down to (for me personally) was stillness.
