I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...

"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

No pain no gain

No pain no gain.

That thought just kept running through my mind as I started physical therapy tonight. The deep tissue massage on my right leg - holy cow, ouch! But the PT said it usually gets results, so I bit my lip and resisted the urge to ask her to stop (or the urge to scream).

No pain no gain.

I can't just want something and not be ready to work for it, especially when it comes to healing. I need to put in the work on the exercises she gave me. And I have to show up to my sessions. I have faith that hard work will pay off. She (and my doctor) seemed hopeful that I could start running again soon and even start training for a marathon.

So, my goals are in front of me, and I'm going to work for them. Let's do this.
