Impossible

“This is impossible…only if you believe it is.”

“I have sometimes believed six impossible things all before breakfast.”

“This is good.”

Have you ever really pushed yourself…to see how far you can go?

I think I push myself a lot (and probably those around me as well)…

I suppose I fall down…I don’t seem to recall that part as much as I probably should.

I notice a lot of pushing lately….HARD.

It is as if I am daring myself to fall down…or to see exactly what it is that perpetuates a fall…

Nothing yet…surprisingly enough.

My friend and I ran a half marathon on Saturday morning.

the whole thing

in the rain

and hail

the whole thing!

for two hours and forty nine minutes

I didn’t know I could do this.

Now, my legs were pretty shaky, so I COULD have fallen down, but I didn’t.

So, I did it.

Now what?

Maybe

Running long and hard is the easy part…

I fear…

 sitting still,

 and quiet…

might be the hard part.

Perhaps that…

 is the real jabberwocky I must slay.
