Action 441 - Be In Love.

Fifteen years ago today, I was recovering from a painful, toxic relationship. My only intention on May 7, 1997, was to enjoy a planning breakfast with friends and then search out a new apartment in which I was going to rebuild my life. That was my plan, anyway.

What I got, instead, was an unexpected breakfast companion, a wonderful day of fun, and an adventure that has lasted for fifteen years and just  keeps getting better.

Action 441 - Be In Love. And I am. Truly, madly and deeply in love.

How does this connect to this project? Simple. Being in love, and being loved, gives me the confidence to try new things, to step outside my comfort zone, and to reach for goals that may once have seemed beyond me.
"To love someone deeply gives you strength. Being loved by someone deeply gives you courage." Lao-Tzu

I know that my husband will support me no matter what crazy idea I decide to pursue. Run a marathon? Go for it. Run another? Sure. Fly across the country to run a relay race? You should do it!

Thank you, Ric Sanchez, for changing everything about my life just by loving me. You believe in me, sometimes even more than I do, and I never want to know what life without you would be like.

Here's to the last fifteen years.



And now, on to the next adventures!
