Shelter in Place has taught me some profound lessons.
I tend to learn things the hard way.. but I once do, I learn them well.
It is what it is and it becomes what we make of it.
I am surprised by a handful of things, shocked by a few, overwhelmed by one or two but it’s just part of it.
There’s a Paulo Coelho quote that has always inspired me…. I hope it inspires others as much as it does me.
One lesson I learned was that my body is only mine… I’ve had trainers and spent time and money learning from them and following the plans they have created for me.
But in the end of the day. It was my choice about what I did and what I ate.
My body reflects those choices.
I’ve been training myself the past month.. making mistakes and making strides. It’s my body. It’ll be my body after Shelter.
I’ve learned that things aren’t what they seem and that there are strangers that you didn’t expect.
I’ve learned to step away and let go and see what happens or doesn’t happen.
I’ve learned that I can not hold on to the past when the future is on the edge.
I’ve learned to forgive
I’ve learned to let go of what I had hoped for and accept what is.
I’ve learned not to regret anything … But to live with the lessons.
Life is short.
Make it beautiful.
