Age slowly makes its presence known upon all of us a little at a time.
It speeds up a bit in my life when I go back to sitting in a chair 8 hours a day or more. I am stiff when I try to stand up and I have to stand up carefully so I don't fall down if my ankle gives out. I have to get up and down several times in a day and I know it is good exercise, but age is showing its ugly face and fear falling every time I stand back up.
And my allergies act up this time of year and I itch. Do you know how hard it is to reach my back? I haven't been able to stretch that way in years. Today I was reading that if we set a goal to increase flexibility, I can do it.
I can do it.
I don't know how yet, but if I keep trying, I can do it.
