Over only two days I got to share a deep insight into myself and into some pretty special people.
In the pursuit of for want of a better word, “excellence” I and 4 of the most amazing people, set out to do a 14km, 30 military obstacle course.
We of course knew each other from the gym we go to, and the classes such as boxing and KiMax (think lots of kicking and punching and much to our delight burpees!).
Irrespective of geography and gym time tables that have thrown us together, what we have discovered is shared ethics, values, life outlook, social awareness, and honesty and integrity. Add in determination and a real passion for fitness and you have a team.
So as we ran through the forest, and climbed up ropes, carried ammunition cases and sandbags, and we yelled our each others names for encouragement, throughout the exertion, there were smiles and laughs and deeper cementing of what we each individually were pursuing.
It struck me that the goals we seek as individuals are enhanced when we can share the dream with others!
I dwelt on it for a day or so and then I caught the wonderful post by @viktorianovak a stunningly creative designer, speaking about her passion and imagination and where it come from. Her words are magical “magic is all around us, it exists, you just have to find it”. No truer words have been said.
Find the people that bring magic into your life.
