Adding an additional chapter to my already full life has been exciting but it has also been a learning curve of adjustments and figuring out how to find my groove with my body’s new investments over the past several years.
Pacing has been the biggest factor in engaging my body, now ever more self-willed and spontaneous, in the new daily routines. “Mind over matter” is an oft repeating mantra for me and I’m fortunate to have discovered this, and several other mental and visual exercises while in junior high school. With a strong mind, I’m capable of preparing my body, redirecting my body, and keeping it moving forward.
I love new adventures but was not expecting the body’s overall health to interfere with my course. Alas, I’m reminded with lessons in patience, flexibility, and focusing on my blessings and being positive. And, I do my damnedest to make it a great day.
