In case you have not noticed, I am a talker. I enjoy talking because it helps me to process what I am thinking and feeling.
The truth is that I have always been a talker. Even as a child I would bring home report cards that told my parents about how I talked too much! However, my Mom was never worried about it. Mom said that if talking too much was the worst thing that they had to say about me than I was going to be alright.
Recently, God has been teaching me about my lack of follow through. You see I am happy to talk about an idea and dream about the future, but I rarely take action to make my dreams a reality.
Would you like an example?
Ever since I reached my goal weight in 2009, I have talked about how much I want to run a marathon! I am so jealous of those around me who get to participate in marathons. However, the truth is that I have not been running in over a year! How am I ever going to run in a marathon if I do not do something about it?
That is just one of many examples that I could share with you.
I want to be a doer, not just a talker. I want to be the kind of woman who pursues her passions and dreams! I don’t want to spend the rest of my life dreaming about how good it could be. I want to be able to make those dreams a reality right now!
So, you want to know I did yesterday? I went running! I went on a run for the first time in over a year! It hurt and my muscles sore, but they are just a reminder to me that I did it! I laced up my running shoes and suddenly I wasn’t just a talker, but I was finally making my dreams a reality!
Yesterday, I became a runner again! I cannot wait to see how else God is going to work in my life as I put my words into action!
