"You Can't Teach an Old Dog New Tricks"
True? or False?
I consider myself a bit of an old dog and I have and continue to learn new tricks...
But.....I also find that I often find myself learning some of the same lessons over and over again. Or...put in another way.........Here I am again nursing an injury that could have been prevented (or at least lessened) had I only practiced those things that I know I should.
"If You Want To Be A Big Dog, You have To Be Able To Raise Your Leg"
One of my dad's cautionary adages. Right now, with my sore knee, I don't feel much like a big dog.
Have I failed? Of course not! We only fail when we give up. I will continue to try to learn those lessons that will keep me healthy. While I sit here with ice on my knee, I am being reminded that stretching, foam rollers and proper shoes are all important along with reigning back our enthusiasm and taking it slow...or that should be smart.
Some dogs need to repeat their obedience training.
Practice Makes Perfect.
If At First You Don't Succeed.
Yadda Yadda Yadda
Ok....time for a little motivational quote.
If that one doesn't do it........................
And since I am a cat lover.............
