Finding Your Balance

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 🕊
