Now years later looking back; joy, relationships, experiences, lessons learned have come into my life from surrendering to my life which includes Retinitis Pigmentosa. And yes, there are still days when I miss hopping in that car.
Right now I am experiencing a different surrendering. I love to run. I have some amazing friends that through the use of a tether are my guides. I have run a marathon, many half-marathons and 10Ks. One of my dreams has been to run the Boston Marathon. I missed the qualification by 12 minutes at our last marathon. Last year while training for a Marathon to qualify, I broke my foot. This year we are six weeks out from a marathon. I am experiencing IT band issues. Is it time to surrender into serenity? Not ready to surrender on this one ... searching to make sure I'm doing all I can in the process while trying to be still and listen to what is best. Surrendering. Searching. Serenity. I'm in the space of sadness on this one. I'll be there for a bit and then will be ready to surrender if that is what is needed. My head knows there are many new dreams I can create if this one isn't a possibility.
What has been your experience with surrendering into serenity?
