It is all about your perspective of things.
Lots of things are this way, and you can look at them any way you choose. That is one thing we still all have control over ~ our thoughts and feelings.
Tonight as I was jogging, in my slow jogging style, I passed some walkers on the path. As I passed, I overheard them say "Someday we will be able to run like that."
Well, that is about the first time that my slow jogging has been categorized as running, but it was all in their perspective! I am glad that they are positive about their fitness goals, and YES, they can do it! Someday they will be running if they stick to it, and work at it every day.
I am a Putnamaniac that is a glass half full person and no one is taking that away from me!
