Trusting in your body?
Friday, September 20, 2013
One thing that my beau and I enjoy watching on the tv is American Ninja Warrior. The people who do parkour always inspire me to get up off my butt and go run around the park doing mad flips and jumps....too bad its on at like 10pm lol! (Jessie LaFlair is my favorite parkour guy..he is on youtube, btw)
While I love seeing how good of shape everyone is in, I cannot fathom having that much awareness of where my body is in space to be able to trust it. I mean, I usually tend to look down when I walk just to make sure I am not (well, probably not) going to trip and fall.
I know when I was young, I ran all over the neighborhood, climbed trees, and other assorted things like that.
In regards to balance and trust in knowing where my body is in space is;
Is it weight, age, fear, natural inability, or just something that I need to relearn? Is it something that CAN be learned at my age? Or should I just stick to the 'safe' things that I know I can do?
On another note...I had another interview today and I am pleased to say that both the commuting and the interview went much better! Although to be honest, the bar was not set very high after yesterday's happenings, lol!
After yesterday, I felt pretty darn accomplished getting out of bed without falling over!
Take care and love yourself!
