Last week I threw my back out and it took a toll on me but I still managed to get over 1100 minutes of exercise for the month safely and this week started off great. I am still a bit winded from last week, but as long as keeping moving on, that will subside.
It's funny when you are more determined to make changes how much better you become, not only in strength but in the mind as well. I know in the past that if I would have had ANY kind of injury, that would just end all my progress and I would quit, regardless how minor the injury. I would take it to the doctor and have them fix me up and then I would give up. Now, because I am so determined to make a positive change, I didn't let something as big as the back pain to stop me. I didn't feel the need to go to the chiropractor like I would have before. I just medicated the first 2 days, was in bed rest the 1st day and then slowly started to exercise, remembering all of the moves from the physical therapist AND OH BOY did that work!!! Like I said before, still winded, but it is getting so much better.
When you pay attention to your past, learn from it and bring it to your present, the difference it can become when utilizing the teachings to make your life better for the future. Some will let the past control them, but there are those that let the past guide them, to ensure a life worth living and worth making a thousand times better. I was once a dweller, but now I am a seeker. I want a better life and I want to make good things happen!!!
I feel very blessed today for the life I have been given and the many chances I have received to make it so. God is my light and I know He will get me through anything!!!
