I decided to pull a card today from the Butterfly Oracle Cards for Life Changes by Doreen Virtue. I wanted to write something at least once a week and the Wednesday mid-week scene seemed the best time. I just was a bit unsure though. I have a lot to talk about but some of these things just do not feel right, right now. Hence the card pulling and see what I Feel from that. Body Changes. Well that’s interesting. Definitely a lot has transpired there in the last 25yrs or so. The funny/amazing thing is that now that I am closing in on 50 in six months, I feel better than I did at age 20. Seriously, it’s fascinating. I remember in my 20s I would develop injuries/pain in my ankles and shins back in my Marine Corps days. In my 30s, I was having issues with my knees on a regular basis. By late 30s/early 40s it was my lower back on top of all of that. I was breaking down as the years wore on. But……….
By age 43 I changed what I ate (became a vegetarian) and developed my holistic mind/body/spirit regimen. Six years later, as I reflect on the time that has gone by…I feel Great. So much so that I signed up for my next marathon, albeit not until Jan 2020 (and will be approx. a week after I turn 50). The body mind spirit connection is so incredible and you hear these truly inspiring stories out there about older individuals completing the most monumental achievements. I think the one that sticks out the most is a 94yr old lady who was a two-time cancer survivor who became the oldest woman to complete a half-marathon (San Diego Rock-n-Roll 2017), BUT it wasn’t two years earlier that she became the oldest woman to complete a full marathon at 92. Amazing.
The human body is an incredible machine if you treat it with the utmost respect that it deserves………it’s You.
Have a wonderful week, my friends!
