Welcome to My Garden

We may walk on different paths, but we follow the same footprints.

This year I'm focusing on improving my running and overall health by taking the 2017 Mile Challenge and seeing where the journey takes me. I'm also revisiting the Monthly Challenge started by Nephew Jason in 2009.

I'll try to post something every day. It may be a short inspirational quote or a longer narrative. Please join me......

2017 miles Day 81

From:  Wanna Know a Truth by Tony Garcia, pg 100

There are beautiful things in the world and there are sad things and when they come together they make a star.  The light is far away and the strangest part is that the light is inside you.
~Victor Lodato

Perhaps strength is not something you must acquire.

Maybe it simply exists within you and waits for a time you must be strong.

Perhaps courage is not something you must acquire.

Maybe it sits quietly within you and waits for a time when you must be brave.

Perhaps faith is not something you must acquire.

Maybe it breathes softly within you and waits for a time when you must believe

Perhaps worthiness is not something you must acquire.

Maybe it waits patiently within you until a time when you recognize your true value.

Perhaps you would view yourself differently if you no longer believe you are deficient.

Maybe the time has come for you to recognize that you have always been enough.

For what you seek has always been with.


I believe this to be true.  I believe that deep within our subconscious there is a well that contains our strength, courage, faith, and self worth, and all the other attributes, good and bad, that make us human.

How many times have you faced an "insurmountable" task and found that there was no prefix attached to the word and the only thing left was a "surmountable task".  What did it take ... to remove that prefix ...  You found a way to pull strength, courage, and faith out of your well of humanness and found a way.  You did it!  You removed the prefix.  It's not something someone else did for You, it is something You did for You.

This poses a bit of a conundrum.  What is the process, method, spark - that enables us to tap into that "well" .....  that collective soul of strength, courage, faith, self worth, ................

I believe that I hold within my self the Spirit of my Creator.  The Spirit, being of the Creator - and the Creator of all ... not two separate, but one.  (confusing, and yet - not).  When you think about it, we are all connected in some way through that well of subconscious humanness.  I believe it is the Spirit that dwells within all of us that taps into the well and draws out from the depths of the soul and being, the strength, courage, faith that are needed to remove the negative prefixes - turning the insurmountable into surmountable.

We are not deficient.  We do hold the power in the well of our being.  We are not on this journey alone.  We have the Spirit within us tapping into that well.
Sometimes we just have to ask ... it's called prayer.

Now .... GET OUT THERE!!!  You have work to do!!!
