The first (slightly irrelevant) question is why does wordpress think I have misspelled positivity? It doesn’t even give me any alternative spellings, just “positive, positivism and positivist” as alternatives… I have checked it in the OED so it must be right…
Oh well…that is not the point of this post…
The point of my post is that after the over dramatic (possible over reaction) that was Tuesday, I am now feeling a lot more positive about this whole thing! I am not going to say I am happy about not dancing, and not gymming, but my foot is very definitely on the mend and I am not feeling quite so hopeless!
Not hopeless at all actually
So here are the positives 🙂
- I can still go to dance outs and be part of Mythago, I am currently learning the recorder and have a drum so can be a pretend musician / drummer for the injury duration. This is not quite as fun as dancing but I still get to play out with my friends and noone forgets that I exist.
- I can still work out upper body stuff…which needs to catch up with my lower body anyway so yeay!
- The realisation that this whole exercise / lifestyle thing is really that. In realising how sad it made me not to be able to do it, I have reiterated to myself that I have genuinely made the transition from exercising because I have to into an active lifestyle that involves exercising because I love it!
These are huge positives for me 😀
and because I am not into “inspirational” photo quotes I am going to leave you with a photo of Mythago that I took 4.5 years ago, before I started dancing out!
