I haven’t always been a runner, but I have started running lately since I really haven’t felt like joining a gym and I live in a place with beautiful weather.
I am not really an outgoing person and some of my favorite days and nights are just sitting home with my family playing, working on my projects, listening to some music, or watching a good movie. However I do need people and I have noticed that when I run if someone waves at me or smiles I get a jolt for a few min and forget that I was tired or out of breath and run with renewed strength.
After noticing this I have started waving at everyone I run by (drivers, runners, walkers) and for the runners and walkers I take the extra step of taking off my headphones to say good morning as I run by. This morning one of the walkers I said good morning to, waved back and said, “Good morning my friend!”. He is living Our Best Life even if he doesn’t call it this and I was overjoyed to meet him if only for a moment!
Jesus thank you for my new friend! Please help me be a friend to everyone I encounter just as you are a friend to all of us!
My friends, It is Our Best life… someday we will all be friends!
