October is flying too fast for me. Work front is demanding and not forgetting all the commitments and social engagements. Too many things to do and have enough time for everything as usual.
Here October we try to create all cancer awareness, especially pink ribbon. Some call me crazy to sign up for 27km, seven bridges walk for Cancer Council. I never walked that kind of distance before. It was my very first try. Last year I did city to surf which 14km run for those who already following me last year knew this. There are a few reasons why I do this walk. It is my personal healing journey, to raise awareness, fundraising, in rememberance of loved ones who fought cancer and migrated to heaven and friends that went through cancer hell and back. Some still awaiting for God’s miracle for their lives.
Every time, I sign up for something tremendous or enormous, something will play up or the enemy will try to create a havoc in order to get you. A bit anxious since I signed up, my body was not 100% again. I had bad hayfever, sinusitis and allergy itchy cough. Normally, I’m a person who love to embrace change, a challenge and try new things. Life is too short to do the same old things.
Well, I’m determined to finish the daunting 27km long walk. I prepared my heart and body for the big day, 25th October 2015. This fundraiser event is hosted by Cancer Council NSW yearly to raise money for research and create awareness for different cancers. They’re celebrating 10th anniversary for seven bridges walk this year which is pretty special.
Some of the word I meditate:
I can do all this through Him who gives me strength. – Phil4:13
Be strong and courageous. – Deut31:6
I will never leave you nor forsake you. – Heb13:5
For nothing is impossible with God. – Lk1:37
The fact about long walk is not only great to train your mind, body and spirit to the next level of good positive thinking, endurance, perseverance, determination, attitude of “DONT GIVE UP!”and toughen your body. It also helps you to clear your mind of all the garbage, detox your mind and focus on the things that really matter.

So pleased to let you know I did it and complete it with my walking buddy and a few other friends. There is a will, there is a way! By the way, age is not the limit. As I have witnessed kids as young as seven and silver hair seniors in their seventies or eighties doing it and complete the walk. Not forgetting, moms and bubs with prams and people who are physically challenged who managed to do this walk!
I proud to show you some photos I’ve taken on the walk.
