The change started to happen!
The picture on the left was taken in 2015, back then I couldn’t stand for longer than two minutes to even do my own dishes. I had to do them in two minute spurts. Walking was with a cane or walker. Diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia. My energy was gone, and I couldn’t do anything. Sick and tired of being sick and tired! That is where I was. Depression was hard to fight off. Then I started to get back to what I know works! Listening to my inner being. Meditation and finding myself again. I felt like the world had chewed me up and spit me out! It had ! So I decided to make some changes in my BS ! It was slow in the beginning, but the more I did it, the better it got, and the more I wanted to do it. My days started going from everyday a bad day, to two good days a week, then three, then four! Then more! It was a slow process but I had to focus on the little things that was happening. Standing up to do my dishes was a big thing! Getting a sink full done in one shot was a big accomplishment! Somewhere along the line, my daughter made the remark that I was moving faster! Wow, I hadn’t even noticed, but yes she was right! I had moved from snail speed to turtle! We had a good laugh! She said, “ damn, for an old woman your getting kind of frisky”! Then it hit me, I don’t want to be an “old woman”. I want to be young again! So I set out on a mission to finding my younger self.
One day I was have a down day, and so I decided to surf the YouTube for some inspiration. I found a video about a guy who was a lot like me. Over weight, sick, and couldn’t walk. After I saw that video, I knew I had to keep going. So I started doing videos myself.
