Life's not always fair. Sometimes you can get a splinter even sliding down a rainbow. ~Terri Guillemets
Last week was a stretching week and I feel sore as a result.
Muscles that I haven't worked in a long time are now causing me discomfort as I have been starting to rely on them once again - unaided, without a crutch.
Building up the strength in these muscles again is a painful process.
They end up hurting not only me but also those I love.
I need to do my stretches so the aches and pains don't cripple me, so I don't walk with a limp.
I know I need to once again become strong enough to not let the emotions that come through circumstances consume me.
I have to realise there's no point overexerting myself - just little by little, stronger day by day - and going easy on myself with no expectations so I can once again effortlessly live lightly and joyfully.
