"Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower."
I've been thinking.....
It's harvest time, but what if there's something in you now that's waiting to bloom?
It's never too late to re-evaluate what's working and what's not.
For example: I thought that after my bike accident and resulting TBI last August I'd never ride again. Since my knees are funky, and my stamina irregular, eBike riding was a way I could be outside and get just the exercise that was right for me.
So I spent this year healing, grieving my loss and finding ways to reconnect with my "mojo" that didn't include a bike.
Fortunately, I was working with someone familiar with TBI recovery, and she said offhandedly mid-way through the year, "Oh sure! You'll be able to ride again! Give it a year and try it."
In September, I timidly got on a 2-wheeler and was stunned by how much better my brain immediately functioned when my whole body was involved in traveling. I felt more confident on the bike than I was driving my car.
Now I've traded my too-big-for-me eBike for my "little pony" eBike.
I feel stable, safe and happy riding to work and generally peddling my-self around town; and my brain is happier and healthier for it.
Warning: This is not everyone's experience, so don't go hopping into an activity that you miss just because! Ask your knowledgeable practitioner what's right for you.
So what limitation have you settled for? Is it time for re-evaluating?
