I started this blog almost a year ago. I called it Monday Morning with Mona with hopes that I would publish something every Monday. It would be proof to myself that I’m capable of being consistent at something other than running.
For almost 2 decades now I have been a consistent runner, and I make that statement with pride. However, as I was looking onto my life, there was a little else that I showed any semblance of consistency. I’ve had more jobs than I can count on two hands. I’ve had so many beautiful friendships go to the wayside. I have picked up and dropped more hobbies than I can even remember. I have been an active member of many churches, and I have skipped going to church for years at a time. It was this self reflection that made me realize that I wasn’t showing consistency in all facets of my life, and I needed to start working on finding consistency somewhere else.
It’s now Monday morning, and I need to create content. I need to write. I need to publish something to my blog. I need to be consistent.
This past Saturday I ran 70 miles on the island of Okinawa. It was one of the more memorable experiences of my life. There’s so many things that I could write about it, and I’m not prepared to write about any of it today. I still have mixed feelings, and it may take me another week before I can put my thoughts on paper…or to type them into a keyboard.
The content for today’s blog was supposed to be about the run, but I’m just not ready. I hope you come back next week, because I’m sure I’ll have something more insightful or interesting to write about, but this week, all I can come up with is:
My heart is full.
I know I am loved.
So many people showed me so much love.
I am part of an amazing community.
I live on a safe and beautiful island.
God is good.
I am consistent.
May you have a good week, and subscribe to the blog if you want a notification for next week’s run recap. Thanks for reading. If you’re consistent at something you’re proud of, let me know.
