"... Ever since your goal found out that you were traveling toward it, it has been running to meet you." Paulo Coelho
What has this ‘sport’ done for me that should cause me to put everything down and focus on it first….
Besides leave me broke and disrespected, depleted and hopeless, standing alone in piles of shame and guilt, there stands no reason to continue in such one-sided relationship.
Why, then, do you continue down this path of destruction and despair?
This isn’t about my life with track, but the perceptible idea of Love and Will. We deeply hope to believe that what we give is equal to what we receive, but when it comes to the issue of Love, those who love with expectations to be loved in return are wasting their time. Love is an expression of faith, not an exchange.
“I try to make sense of things. Which is why, I guess, I believe in destiny. There must be a reason that I am as I am. There must be.” Robin Williams
In this idea that “Imperfection is Human”, I wanted to share stories of individuals being human. The ideas or actions that we may believe to be mistakes are ironically the things that make us most incredible. It may be an act of mistake that you feel ashamed of, or an event that just happened to you that can make you feel less worthy.
