Is there life out there?


So last night’s birthday celebration end with us at a pub doing karaoke.  Where I decided to sing a song by one of my favorite artist, Reba McEntire called – Is There Life out There

She married when she was twenty
She thought she was ready
Now she’s not so sure
She thought she’d done some living
But now she’s just wonderin’
What she’s living for
Now she’s feeling that there’s something more

She’s always lived for tomorrow
She’s never learned how
To live for today
She’s dyin’ to try something foolish
Do something crazy
Or just get away
Something for herself for a change

There’s a place in the sun that she’s never been
Where life is fair and time is a friend
Would she do it the same as she did back then
She looks out the window and wonders again

Is there life out there
So much she hasn’t done
Is there life beyond
Her family and her home
She’s done what she should
Should she do what she dares
She doesn’t want to leave
She’s just wonderin
Is there life out there

Over the pass few weeks, as I have embarked on the journey from my couch to a half marathon, this song has brought such meaningful thoughts to mind and I have belted it to the top of my lungs on days that guilt creeps in because I am out pounding pavement instead of doing one of the million things I have written on my to – do list.

I have found there is life out there and I am working on be okay with having a life out there.  Day’s like today make it easier to do that.  I went back to the first place I ran when I opened this blog on March 18.  I did my intervals of 2 minutes walking and 1 minute jogging to complete the same 1.8 path.  The difference was on March 18th it took me 34 minutes to complete and today it only took me 27 minutes.  What a thrill!  My goal is to go back again May 20th and do 1.8 miles in 25 minutes.
