“A long time ago, I realized that I was running a sprint, trying to “rush” to take care of all my son’s medical appointment, therapies, etc, hoping to reach the finish line sooner. After many years, I realized that I was not running in a sprint! This was no 100 yard dash, but sadly, a marathon. This was an endurance and stamina test that I would not pass if I did not do things differently!This analogy helped me realize I had to change my strategy if I was going to survive. I was going to have to come up with a plan whereby I could last for the long haul, and that meant slowing the pace down.”
