Freewheeling ~ narrative
In the spirit of determination, courage and fun, I pulled out my beloved bicycle this week for a short spin around the block. It’s been years since I’ve been able to ride. I cannot say it was an easy feat, but I thoroughly enjoyed the exhilaration, movement, freedom… and the cool bay breeze blowing through my hair. Biking has always been magical to me, and had been one of my favorite physical outlets since I was small. Something special about speeding around on 2 big silver wheels!
Even though I am still struggling with instability of my hip joint (which refuses to stay in its proper place within the socket), and constant severe pain, I can say my muscles are most definitely stronger for having done the 6 week rehab program in Chicago, and I continue to do my homework several hours per day. There is yet more to overcome, but I am still hoping to coax my body into a”happy state” somehow, someway… and am excitedly planning to incorporate some careful and mindful biking into my healing journey as we approach the warmer weather. To all my wonderful friends here, I encourage you to go out and discover what makes your heart soar – and then indulge. Live joyfully, love and find light everywhere you can!
Much Love To All,
