• T H R O W B A C K • Throw back tow hen I actually had some core strength! I’m so keen to get back to this! I’ve been to the gym 3 times and can already feel the impacts it’s having (sore muscles for sure!) it’s also having so an impact mentally already! Exercise really is good for all of your body 💪🏻🧠
The journey; as short as it has been so far, has been tough...at times it's felt downright debilitating. . I have, unfortunately, thought of *giving up* on several occasions. I'm not proud of that...it's just a fact. . But, I haven't given up, and further more, I don't plan giving up. Every time I've felt knocked down, or too weak to go on; I've stood up, and demanded one more step...and then one more, again, again, and again. Eventually, I find I'm moving again...moving forward. . Forward is my new, and permanent, direction in life. Any time I'm asked where I'm going, or what my plan is; my answer is *Forward*. . Memories, hurt, experiences, and even people, who are part of *Behind*, are there for a reason. And I no longer *need* answers to what that reason is, or why it happened. Now I just move forward. . I have a very long way to go on this journey of becoming the me I was meant to be, and I look forward to every step... forward.
Let me be clear about something. I am a mutt, Heinz 57, mixed breed, clidascope of ethnicity. I am mostly French, Austrian Jewish, a tad bit of Italian, Spanish, English/Welsh, Middle Eastern, native american (creek) and a dash of African. Someone had the nerve to ask me since "I am one of those people, how do I feel about the illegals coming into the country?" Well, my ancestors were here first and foremost I am an american 100%. My family legally came into this country looking for a better way of life. The illegals coming into this country, maybe looking for a safe haven, but do it legally. This is the United States of America. Start treating people as their brother or sister. Not some sort of spawn that doesn't fit into your mold.
