"It's simple: Picture in your mind the object of your desire (whether it's a situation, an event, or an image of yourself) as vividly as possible. Spend time concentrating on the image, truly believing in it as if it were already real. Be detailed and comprehensive in creating the image, and be sure to include your emotional well-being in this vision as well."
NOW, I'm not the best artist in the world, but I am fortunate to have a BFF who snaps pictures on her Blackberry while we are in stores. Better yet, one who captures photos that end up have a much deeper meaning than just a funny pose to be tagged in via facebook. (Not to mention, it gives all of YOU a better visual of the picture painted in my mind :)
Anyways, we were at Gary Gribbles Running Shoes a few weeks ago because it was time for some new workout shoes. If you've never been...GO...they fit you for what shoe is right for YOU! The girl I had the privilege of dealing with was around my age and height - she was fit, active and fun. Turns out she's ran a couple marathons and running is something she LOVES to do. I was super impressed with her marathon accomplishments and she was equally commenting on my weight loss. We talked about my new adventures with jogging and my goal to run some 5k's this summer and next year complete the Disney Princess Half. Somewhere in this time frame, Ali happened to snap a camera phone shot of us talking. When I got in the car and took a peek at this "candid" picture, I couldn't help but notice we were both wearing black exercise shorts, red T-Shirt, hair pulled back and well the obvious...we're both black. lol. This girl was a "picture" of what is only a "vision" or dream for me right now but she gave me an image of what body I'd like to strive towards (only add a few pounds :).
"I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus."
