To everything there is a season.
I have entered a season where my heart hangs heavy and my soul aches for friends who face serious health issues.
In an exchange with one friend, I received the advice, or the challenge, “You better stay healthy.”
I appreciate the sentiment but the reality, as my friend knows, is that I need to get healthy.
For almost two days now, I have tried. I ate well yesterday. I walked on the treadmill last night. I installed a number of health apps to measure food intake, exercise, weight, and other bodily functions, I ate well today.
As I type, I recognize the privileges that I carry: access to good food, access to a gym, access to a smart phone and a computer, financial resources to pay for them, freedom to make use of them, safety to practice them, time to devote to them, and more.
Humbled at having so much, I renew my commitment and head to the gym for a second night.
See you along the Trail.
