A few years ago I started trail running, often I run in sandals.
Fellow runners will see my footwear and mention how difficult it must be to run in sandals, with all the sharp rocks, and roots in the trail.
When I’m running my focus is on the best place to put my foot down, it happens 180 times every minute. My entire focus is not on how rocky or rough the trail is, it’s on where I need to put my foot.
There will be times you stub your toe, or twist your foot on a root. Focusing on the path doesn’t deny the obstacles exist. Do you focus on the obstacles in your trail of life, or the best path that is placed in front of you?
