It feels good to feel good again.
I’ve said it 100 times and thought about it even more, the toll of my injury at the end of last year was so much bigger and longer lasting than ever before. Physically, nutritionally, emotionally and even my relationships, to some extent, were all out of whack. Over time I moved on and let go.
I emailed a friend not too long ago and almost without thinking I typed “it feels so good to feel good again.” It was an ah-ha moment to realize that was exactly how I was feeling! Talking to this friend has a way of doing that. For whatever reason when I’m emailing her I don’t over think everything and there is a clarity to that. Anyway, back to my point.
Looking back, I’m not exactly sure how I moved on and let go, I just knew it had to be done. Now, I feel like the pieces are all coming together…almost.
My fitness is better balanced and I’m overall stronger than I’ve been in a very long time.
My nutrition? For the first time maybe in forever, I don’t need an “expert” to tell me what I should eat. I will [always] continue to learn and of course search for new recipes to try but I know what my body needs right now and I know what I enjoy. I’m enjoying a confidence in the kitchen. There is a sense of accomplishment with creating recipes and knowing how to fuel my body for performance and to feel my best.
Now, I’m focusing on the emotional (mental) piece of wellness. This is the toughest piece of the puzzle for me. This is a work in progress and I don’t have a whole lot to share yet.
Where to start? I’m reading this because of my misconceptions about meditation:
and I’m re-reading this book because it refocuses me and gives me a refreshed perspective:
I’m excited to see where this personal journey continues to take me. There’s definitely room for more pieces to the wellness puzzle but, for now, I’m I’m taking comfort in the feeling that the pieces I have are coming together the way I’ve always thought they should.
Maybe this comfort with who you are comes with age or maybe the injury needed to happen for me to make this personal journey. Either way the end is the same. Feeling good to feel good again.
Ironically this week starts the Believe week of the Lorna Jane Spring Clean Pinterest Challenge! It’s fits perfectly with the emotional piece of the puzzle. Believe in yourself, what you can accomplish and all that you can be! I just created my Believe board. Check it our here http://www.pinterest.com/jillconyers/lorna-jane-spring-clean-believe/
