Tried to get back to a bit of physical exercise today. Started my lunges where I left off when I was doing them more frequently. Sailed through the first set with a huff and a puff about how strong I am in my old age. … Then I pulled my inner groin muscle on the second set.
Well do the words of a popular Country-Western song apply to me:
“I ain’t as good as I once was, but I am as good once as I ever was.”
Spent a bit today thinking about the negative aspects of my own life in a positive way.
I am now a 50 year-old, 190 lb. man who runs a few miles without stopping with a 35 pound weight around his waist. Actually, I weigh 225 lbs, and run without any weight belt but my own fat, but that’s looking at it in a positive light. I’m proud that as a 190 lb. man, I can run so far. :-)
Sheri came up with a good one:
- I have the eating disorder Bulimia without the urge to purge. :-)
- I’m a gay woman trapped in a man’s body.
And there are many other ways I can look at myself, turning what others might view as a negative, into a positive.
What a world it would be if we eliminated the negative way that we view ourselves and each other.
Nothing more for today.
