In 2016, I lay on the dance floor in excruciating pain. Why was this happening to me? What had I done wrong? Would I ever be pain free again?
A couple of weeks before I over extended my back while doing acro-yoga with some new friends. I was trying to do whale pose where you bend over backwards and grab your ankles. It hurt but I didn’t let go. I wanted my new friends to think I was good at acro.
Then, weeks later, a little soreness had turned into persistent pain and peaked the day it combined with period cramps. I ended up lying on the dance floor asking “Why me?”
Health is such a precious gift, that we often don’t appreciate until it’s gone. The days that I wake up well rested and my body feels good, I feel like a million dollars. I feel like I can take on the world with determination and gentleness.
It’s so easy to put other things before your health: sitting far too long at your desk to finish a project and then meeting a friend for a glass of wine turns into many glasses. You wake up in the morning with a sore back and a headache. You wake up grumpy with the world.
