Random Thoughts and Rules to Live By, Part 15

Friday, May 6, 2016

When I see older adults struggling with illness and injury, and I know they've not done the work necessary to ensure they entered their senior years as strong and flexible as possible, I feel sorry for them, because I know it didn't have to be that way. And then I go back to the gym.

Yes, this keeps me very motivated as well. If I had broken these bones and not had good upper body and core strength from boxing this would be much more difficult and likely have a negative impact on my recovery. Got to keep moving even when it hurts!

Yes, but somtimes illness and injury come from simple bad luck. I was in terrific shape before I got sick.

Beatrice, we can't control everything, to my regret. But we can give ourselves the best chance we can to live the lives we want.

Absolutely! We can control our reactions to bad shit.
