Left image is from around 2 years ago while the right image 8 months ago.
Needless to say… I look a bit different.
I didn’t realize how much of a change there had been until I was scrolling through my past images on the hunt for a certain hair style and I landed on this. It actually took me a second to recognize myself.
For those of you who may not know my background story, I was in a fairly significant car accident when I was younger that left me with some permanent damage. Because of these injuries, I was prohibited in doing any type of physical activity (aside from walking) until I could complete some minor surgeries and a ton of rehabilitation. Now, after the surgeries and 2 years of intensive (and painfully slow) rehab, I am finally at a point where I can run, skip and play without as much pain and my functional movement is at the best I can ever remember.
This change is just the starting point for me. Since I will require more invasive surgeries further down the road, my quality of life (long term) is very much dependent upon what I can do NOW, especially as my injuries age and settle. Physical activity, adventures, conscious movement and health are the number one priorities till I am old and grey. After all, you’ve only got one body… and that baby has to last till the very end.
I want wisdom but wisdom’s only friend Is time
Who I I run away from
But he always catches me and walks faster than I ran
Time always gets his way
An uninvited guest who spends more than just one day
Told me the only way that I can meet wise
Is If he brought his friend mistake
Travelin’ searchin’ for wisdom the mission.
