it dawned on me this morning that i will never be able to do a "back walkover" (which is a gymnastics move). i’ve always wanted to be able to do one…but at 39 years old i am sure it is too late. in fact the last time i tried to do a series of cartwheels (about 2 years ago!), i wound up in my bed with a terrible occular migraine (oh and then took a trip to the emergency room where they offered me anti anxiety meds because clearly i was OK)… my brain is not meant to be turned in so many directions!
how maddening to have these moments of knowing i am getting older and not a damn thing i can do about it.
do you ever feel this way?
is there something you’d like to do but believe you no longer can?
and maybe i am wrong. maybe i could still learn to do a "back walkover" if i REALLY wanted to learn. and maybe rather than thinking there is SOMETHING i cannot do, i have to focus on what i can do and what i want to do.
