A Walk to the Beach

I made it to the beach! Going out to a beach my family enjoys, we had forgotten there is a short hike out to the beach from the car. Normally, this would not be a big deal at all. It was the longest walk I’ve done to that day while recovering.

Date Night

Early in the dating years with my wife I bought Carl’s Jr. (Fast Food,) brought it to my house, lit some candles and invited her over. Candle light dinner! That was over twenty-five years ago. Fast forward today, our kids set up a reenactment of that dinner.

And more walking…

Through this process of healing I have been learning a lot. Learning to slow down. Learning to take small steps forward. A step forward is a step forward.

Taking the First Step

When I first got the energy and ability to walk, it was only for short bits. My calves are the first part of my leg that would start to lock up. I found that stretches before and after helped a lot.

Cacao, Mushroom, and the Sun

More gratitude! While I was in my wheelchair I tried to get as much sun as I could. Thankful for the sun  And most of the time I had a cup of cacao with amazing herbal mushrooms (Lion’s Mane especially, because it helps so much with nerve damage.)

Our Lives are Made of Moments

I know I keep saying this, but finding gratitude in the small things (to me) are equal, if not greater, than being grateful for the big things. Really, I strive to find gratitude in all things. In the picture, I’m relaxing in the sun. Gratitude for the sun’s warmth, light and energy. It truly feeds life and healing.

Should I just keep my beard?

I’ve had a few beards over the years, yet I typically keep a shaved face. I thought maybe I’d shave. This was a big workout for me. The hand-eye coordination took a lot of focus and I forgot about all the funny faces I make to get the harder spots.

To Become a Good Walker…

It is amazing to notice something that normally is so simple and unthought of, now takes much thought and effort. I am grateful for the progress I’m making. My physical therapist said, “In order to become a good walker, you must first be a good stander.”
