Running Up Hill
As I was approaching my big hill this morning, I spotted a cell phone tower technician on the tower. He wasn’t in the bucket but standing on the rim of the bucket. I could not bear to see him come tumbling down to his death. The scene was similar to the car accident that you can’t help but look at or the really bad reality television (Jersey Shore, anyone?) that you can’t help watch.
My hill was upon me, I looked down at the road, pumped my arms and ran as fast as I could past the tower never looking up or back. Running forces me to focus, concentrate, block out negative thoughts, emotions, people and situations.
Running up hill is like any other life challenge you experience. You have to face it head on and get your entire being working toward the top. The rewards are great.
How do you run your hill?
