Ah life is often trying to teach you sometime to make you into a better person and bring you closer to your divine nature/true potential. God/Universe/life is always using trials & obstacles to move you in the right direction not to stop you so the sooner you understand that fact the sooner you can get to the learning of the lesson.
I feel this so much from the trials of this fall. After getting my hypothryriodism diagnoise, I spent a lot of time reflecting and thinking about how I will move forward with diagnose and what it will take to get through this bump.
The biggest issue is now out of the way - we have a clear and definite answer which up until now it was still a bit murky as the iron supplementation had not done what it was suppose to do which was to bring me out of the fog of sluggishness and under-performance. I am hopeful with a visit to a sport med dr and getting on the right meds and dosage, I will be on my merry way to awesomeness this spring.
In a back and forth conversation with my coach about this issue, I came to a realize that this next stage in my training will take much patience. And maybe that is the BIG lesson that I am suppose to be learning in all of this was patience. As I was writing to my coach, I heard the words I was writing, they were calm, optimistic and patient which was very unlike me this past year. I wanted everything yesterday and was becoming dissatifited with slow progress and maybe life said "HOLD UP SISTER - YOU NEED TO BE MORE PATIENCE AND LOVE WHAT IS NOW!"
I know this past 6-8 months was not meant to break me but build me up stronger as both a runner and person but in a spiritual growth that only true adversity can change someone's heart and mind.
Thank you God for these trials and what you are working to do in my heart and life. I will work everyday to have mindful patience and rejoice in all the gifts and miracles that I received daily.
May you all look at your obstacles/struggles as gifts to learn from and glim some deep meaning from!
Much love and light to you all as we celebrate the Holiday Season of LOVE, COMPASSION & RENEWAL.
