Happy to be back to my blog!
As I was enjoying our trip to Bend, and Mt Bachelor I read a friend’s post about all the things she can’t do anymore (due to a health problem) and how she handles that and finds new satisfying pursuits. It hit me again how incredibly lucky I am.
While I don’t want to dwell on the past I also don’t want to lose sight of being grateful every single day. I was lucky enough, despite having a massive stroke, to not only survive but to thrive again. I can snowboard, snowshoe, hike, ride horses, go to workouts at the gym, ride my bike – everything I was doing before my stroke.
My experiences have led me to add yoga and meditation into my routines. I believe both have contributed to my current well-being.
Yoga has helped me re-gain my balance and increased my strength in a way I could not imagine. Mediation has given me peace and it is helping to remind me to be present, focus on one task at a time and make the most of this fantastic life!
We all have our own negative set-backs, problems, issues etc. – acknowledge them, and the feelings that come with them, handle it and move on to better things!
