Collecting Mud

Added on by Sam Davidson.

I was so glad to be returning to trail running after several weeks, even though the recent rain made the running a little treacherous and incredibly muddy.

As I trudged along over branches and through the wet dirt, my shoes started collecting mud. It’s all part of the experience.

Until it slowed me down. Mud on mud on mud. I had to stop and kick some off before I could keep going.

Too often we’re all collecting mud in life. And it’s slowing us down. Why not take a moment this week to stop and get rid of some of it?

Kick off that negative self talk. Let another’s criticism of you go. Get rid of doubt that paralyzes, fear that stereotypes, or relationships that don’t bring out the best in you. Why travel with all this extra weight?

Shake it off. You’re going places.
