Shaky Foot Wisdom
January 26, 2022
Now that the Winter Solstice has past, the shortened days of light are again lengthening, though not as quick as I would prefer. And I find that it has been about three weeks since I dropped in here which reminds me of the early Mickey Newbury song, “Just Dropped in (To See What Condition My Condition Was In).”
Just today I mentioned to someone else dealing with Parkinson’s that I often experience what I call “a lack of wanna,” just getting past the inertia of finding too much comfort in just sitting and at best getting lost in the Texas Holdem Poker app on my Smart TV.
Yet, I find as always when I do get up and out, I feel better. So, this week finds me back at Rock Steady Boxing™. Though I had to push myself to go, I do find much benefit from getting moving. Each workout reminds me again of the purpose of staying mentally and physically engaged.
Though a variety of body aches and ailments continue to arise as well as sleeping for a prolonged period of time which remains elusive, I am finding more joy in the moments, again flowing from my gratitude practice.
No matter what the day has brought, before even attempting to fall asleep, I mentally list what I am grateful for. Embracing gratitude and keeping my focus on living my best life is my lifeline.
