Words of Wisdom
You may remember a post I did recently called “The Zig Zag Way of Life”, so I thought I would directly apply my own words of wisdom, which I did yesterday.
As I have previously shared on this blog, I am training for the Loch Ness Marathon in September this year and I am following a strict marathon training programme where yesterday I had to run 7 miles. I had a specific running route pre-planned in my head, however whilst thinking about my zig-zag post, I decided to go on a zig-zag route rather than the usual straighter route. So there I went zig-zagging my way across the local town, when I suddenly realised I was approaching the Cemetery where my Dad is buried. I decided right there and then I would run into the Cemetery and visit my Dad’s gravestone.
It Also Felt Right
It was a strange kind of feeling at first running into the Cemetery, but it also felt right. I run up to my Dad’s gravestone, kissed it and said “Thank You Dad” and I tearfully ran off again to finish my run. When I run away from my Dad’s gravestone I immediately choked up with tears, I honestly couldn’t breathe for the heavy sadness I felt. I love my Dad and I miss him dearly and I was, for just a short few seconds, overwhelmed with the deepest emotion – 10 seconds later I was absolutely fine.
I felt so good the rest of the day and I will tell you why. I am learning a lot about the power of saying “thank you” in a meaningful way and I don’t think I ever properly said it to my Dad when he was alive, I am sure I always felt it, but I never said it to him and for me yesterday, I just had this deep urge to tell him “Thank You”, so I did.
So my decision to change the route led me to zig-zagging my way to saying thank you to my Dad, I know his happy spirit heard my loving whispers.
Who do you want to say “thank you” to today? Who do you want to thank for being in your life? I do hope this post encourages you to do just that.
Thank you, thank you, thank YOU for reading this post, it really does mean a lot to me.
Much love to you today, Clarabelle,
