A Good Sore

We have all had the kind of sore that really hurts.  Maybe you were walking through the living room at night and kicked a table with your bare foot.  Or possibly you hit your head while getting the groceries out of the car.  It might have even been from a broken bone.  This is the kind of sore that just hurts.

But there is a different kind of sore.

This is the kind of sore that makes your body ache the first day after a new workout routine.  Or maybe, like my wife and I are doing right now, you have taken on a project that requires more manual labor than normal.  Or possibly you have taken on something new at work that requires an extra level of effort. 

You are sore…but it is a good kind of sore.

This is the kind of ache that symbolizes growth and change.  With each dull pain, you are reminded of the goal you are reaching toward.  You are reminded of what you want to achieve…what you want to become.

This kind of sore doesn’t hurt as bad.  It’s still sore.  But it’s a good sore.
