Happy Friday!I thought I would share an email I sent to my Working Mom Workouts list last year! It still applies today one year later as my daughter out of nowhere the other day asked to watch the movie again. You will see what I am talking about. Enjoy the last day of Summer!
I just love the Fall! I know I have said that before
but there is just something about opening the door and feeling that
cool crisp air hit you in the face!
Shoot, this past Summer for us it was like 85 degrees at 6 am, so
when I walk outside and it is 60 degrees I am a little giddy! And
since I am feeling a little kiddy today I wanted to write about
something I have been thinking about for a few months now!
A few months back my mother had recommended that we rent the movie
“Secretariat” and watch it with kids. Well, I was a little
reluctant only because my youngest daughter had yet to turn three
and we were not sure if she could sit through the entire movie.
Boy, were we wrong! Sit through the movie, shoot, as I am writing
this to you today my daughter wakes up every morning asking me to
put on “Secretariat.”
Yes, since the night we watched the movie my daughter has fallen in
love with horses and we not only rented “Secretariat” again but
finally purchased it for her birthday that just passed.
Let me tell you after watching it for the like umpteenth time I
feel like I can be an expert film critic. Now, if you have never
seen the movie I recommend you rent it and watch it because it
really is good and has some very good lessons in it, as is the case
with most Disney films!
And that is what I want to talk to you today about, a lesson that I
believe we all need to be reminded about. I know your time is
valuable, so I won’t go into the entire film but Secretariat won the
The “Triple Crown” has only been one by a few horses in history and
is almost considered to be an impossible feat to accomplish. And
during the time period of the movie the last “Triple Crown” winner
was some 25 years earlier, so the odds of Secretariat winning it
was very slim.
Now, here is where the lesson comes in. You see, what had happened
was the father and owner of the ranch had passed away, leaving the family at odds on what to do with the ranch and the taxes owed on it. Going against her family, the
daughter, Penney Tweedy, took over the ranch and put everything on the line. She didn’t care about the money or losing everything instead she believed in carrying out her dad’s legacy and was willing to sacrifice everything just to see the horse “run it’s race!”
The daughter turned down 8 million dollars because she believed
that much in what she was doing!
So, what does this have to do with you? Well, while we were
watching the movie I had said to my daughter, “Ady, run your race”
and she said back to me, “No Daddy, you run your race!”
And that is where it hit me. Each and everyone of us has our own
race to run. At times things be can extremely difficult and the
easiest option might be to sell out and quit.
However, all you need is a little belief. Believe that no matter
what happens you gave it your best and you didn’t quit!
The odds may be against you but the one thing that no one can take
away from you is your belief. I believe in you but you need to start
believing in you!
Now, go out and “Run Your Race!”
