For many reasons I am thinking about my first flight. It was just this past Fall. we flew to florida to get on our cruise ship to go on our very first cruise. I had vowed that I would never get on a an airplane and then it happened ....... we won a cruise. My hubby really wanted to go so unless I let him take someone else I had no other choice. So I did it . I got on that plane. I was so very scared and I cried from the time I got to the airport until this is what I saw outside of my window. ( So glad what I saw wasn't from an episode from that show...STINK!! I can't remeber the name of it....old show that was weird and creepy..... that I snuck and watched when I was a kid) Actually, I was taken by surprise of how beautiful it was. At that moment I felt such peace and so in awe of my God!!! It was almost that same feeling I get when I stand next to the Ocean. ** Sigh** That feeling is like no other.I am deep in thoughts in many ways about this moment . That feeling reminds me of those moments in our lives when we give it all to God and let go and just trust Him. Does anything feel as peaceful?? I do not believe so . Personally , there are some times taking fiirst place in my mind right now and I can do nothing but smile as I think of them. It does feel like you are floating or soaring. Sorry if this is too warm and fuzzy but it is true. I had this feeling to an extent last night. I must say that I have not been real excited these days about this whole excercise thing and to be very honest w/ out this committment to blogland to excercise every day I would be sitting on the couch watching TV. I was able to get new running shoes this past weekend and so Day 24 I decided to up the level on my treadmill. I ran 30+ minutes and then had to get off to go to a Basketball Game. Yesterday Day 25 I did 50 minutes on the raised level w/ blisters to prove it. Last night I went to my Biggest Loser Club. I missed Monday so I had to go and weigh in. It was snowing so hard and I was so tempted to stay home. I did not and even stayed and let Jillian Michaels kick my butt with blisters and all. It was a rough workout for me but I did it. I felt such peace afterwards knowing that I chose to move instead of not and that I did not let the snow,my fear of driving in the snow,or my blisters stop me. I know that that feeling was so much better than the feeling I would have felt if I had stayed home,sat on the couch and watched TV.
