A word about discouragement. I have pondered this a lot over the years of working with many different people—and working with my own broken body. It makes me sad that we do so little to celebrate personal victories.
It seems if somebody is 100 pounds overweight, we don’t really acknowledge 10 or 15 pounds they may lose because we still see them as “heavy.” If someone is coming back from an accident or some enforced bedrest, we don’t acknowledge their efforts to lift very small weights because we still see them as “weak.” We must stop this—especially inside our own bodies and minds. Feeling good physically truly is an every day journey and not a destination. I remember a very beautiful client of mine saying, “I had never thought of freedom of movement and health as being the goals.” I invite the world to think about that.
