One morning I met a 75-yr old former SEA games Boxer at the park.
He has prostate cancer and was undergoing chemo but still exercises regularly.
Him: “I took a rest yesterday.”
Me: “Me too.”
Him: “I think it’s important because the body loses something when you push it. You have to let it get it back.”
Me: “Agreed. We need to find balance.”
This was just 2 life-long athletes sharing a universal truth and understanding.
This reminded me of my younger days when my ego made me feel indestructible,
and the fear-of-missing-out (FOMO) made me train on off-days…
and even when I was injured.
That led me down a painful road of injuries and autoimmunity. (see “About Me” page)
Well, sometimes the best lessons are the ones we have to learn the hard way right?
Like the Chinese Yin-Yang,
always find balance in your life.
Choose the middle path.
Have a blessed week friends 🕊
