My Movie Moment....

I had a total grateful moment today..after much insecurity that has been lingering in my head about me....after yes and no moments about me. After what I would call a my brain is a little confused about what the heck is happening with my life right now..I had a full on movie moment...OK so I am just going to be honest I have more really good days than I do sad ones. I don't really like sad days but I guess they come with the territory.(life)...Ok well I told myself this morning Gloria what are you going to do this month ....That will really make a difference in your life..30 days..30 days to change something for the better......I am going to give up fast food this month...wow..If you knew how much I love fast food you would understand....I love it...but I also am coming to the understanding that I am eating so much of it because I have kinda lost control of what I knew to be my life..You know good or bad my life was a certain way and its all changed..so since I'm all out of sorts right now I tend to do whats easy..and that's not always good..OK I know I am not over weight I am really fine with my body but here the thing..I think that the food choices I have been making it harder for me to feel just plain old healthy...I just don't feel healthy..I feel like this for example...my car is a total mess and it drives fine but when I get in it its just not a smooth ride..its bumpy and I don't feel good in it...Does that make sense..It does right?ok so this leads us to my movie moment because on my road to being healthier this came up.....
OK back to my movie moment...I have not wanted to run ..I do because its good for me and its what I feel I need to be happy...but I have needed to find away to motivate myself..so I found out that near my house a group meets to do an evening run and I asked my dad to please do it with me the first time because I am shy..(really shy)....He said sure Princess...so of we go to Moving Shoes to run with a new group of people and its a 5 mile run but the trick is it was night time...It was really dark..and well I'm 37 and I don't wear glasses and I can hear perfectly but my dad ...well not so much..Here we go behind this really fast group of runners..The kind that are really really fast....him and I..in the dark telling each other lift your feet so you don't fall..look out for the man on a bicycle that has no headlight ...we laughed and I think we were both kinda out of running sorts in the dark..So after 2 miles he stops ...I stop , he looks at his watch and tells me I'm tired Princess and I ask do you want to walk and he says to me ..no lets just go you run first I will fallow you because this makes you happy and that's why I'm here...In that moment my heart was full..I felt loved ...I had a movie moment..A complete memory created in my head that I will remember forever..I cant even begin to tell you how lucky I felt...
Here we are my dad and me...( He is not my biological dad) but he is my heart dad and he has been everything I ever imagined a dad would be..He has loved me like his own little girl since I was 7..OK so there you go my story for today....( oh we burned 580 calories pretty good for a late night run hu...)
