I can go the Distance....

How many of you have seen the Disney movie Hercules? You know the movie of a man who thinks he is a zero, and wants to be nothing more then a hero. Along the course of this movie you see this young boy turn from a zero to a hero. How is that possible you say, well he had help from a man called Phil who whole life mission was to train Heros. Along the way Hercules is faced with many changes, nothing really came easy for this man. But he keeped going and by the end of the movie he became the hero he always wanted to be.
Now I know what your thinking what does this have to do with mamamavation? Well first off read the words of one of my fav. songs from the movie.
I have often dreamed
Of a far off place
Where a hero's welcome
Would be waiting for me
Where the crowds will cheer
When they see my face
And a voice keeps saying
This is where I'm meant to be

I'll be there someday
I can go the distance
I will find my way
If I can be strong
I know every mile
Will be worth my while
When I go the distance
I'll be right where I belong

Down an unknown road
To embrace my fate
Though that road may wander
It will lead me to you
And a thousand years
Would be worth the wait
It might take a lifetime
But somehow I'll see it through

And I won't look back
I can go the distance
And I'll stay on track
No I won't accept defeat
It's an uphill slope
But I won't lose hope
Till I go the distance
And my journey is complete
But to look beyond the glory is the hardest part
For a hero's strength is measured by his heart

Like a shooting star
I will go the distance
I will search the world
I will face its harms
I don't care how far
I can go the distance
Till I find my hero's welcome
Waiting in your arms...

I will search the world
I will face its harms
Till I find my hero's welcome
Waiting in your arms

Now can you see anything in that song that we do in Mamavation? If not let me tell you. How many of you have dreams to become healther? Or maybe to become stronger? How many of you hope to one day be the Hero for your family? Now reread the song lyrics again (go ahead I will wait :D)
Now tell me that this song is not about Mamavation! I have often dream of a far of place where everyone I meet will see me as a heathy mother! This road I am traving on is a unknown road for me and honestly I do not know my fate, or where it will take me. But on thing that I do know is it lead me to you. Yes you and you who are reading this post! You are the ones who are helping me become my own Hero! I like to think of Leah as my Phil, she is always keeping me in cheeck and making sure I am making right choices. You know what she doesn't have to, but she wants to!
Now so many of you women have the chance to become the next Mamavation mom, to become a hero like Katie, and Lisa just became. Yes ladies you are Heros! You are stornger now, which is what makes you my heros. I was going to join you women who are applying, but it is not in my cards. I am on a different road right now to become a mom again. Was it planned no, but it is the path I choose. I know that without a any doubt that you women who are applying can do it. And as the last bit of the songs say
"And I won't look back
I can go the distance
And I'll stay on track
No I won't accept defeat
It's an uphill slope
But I won't lose hope
Till I go the distance
And my journey is complete
But to look beyond the glory is the hardest part
For a hero's strength is measured by his heart"
You will never look back, you can go the distance! You will not accpet defeat, because you now its an uphill climb, but never lose that hope. You can go the distance. And when your journet is complete, always look behind the glory you have gotten, and remeber where you started out. That a realy hero know strength is measured in our heart!
I love you all and I feel so lucky to be a part of your jounreys you are starting and the jounreys that will take you to the distance to find the hero inside of everyone of you!
So I say grab your pair of Earth footware and start your jounrey! OK maybe we dod not all have earth footware, but you can! http://www.earthfootwear.com/
Grab your water bottle and drink it up!
More then anything know that our Phil AKA Leah is always there for you, to train you to become that hero you want to be!
I hope you all have a great week, and remember one thing YOU CAN GO THE DISTANCE!
