Today @ work a new wellness program was announced. Many of the women (self included) groaned when we heard that as part of the initial health assessment, we would be weighed and our hips and waist would be measured as well ~ we can give birth but don't pull out the scales and measuring tape! As much as I dread it, I need to see where I am and where I need to be if I want to see my daughters’ futures unfold and enjoy some quality of life. Sitting in the middle of my forties is a bit of a reality check against the youthful ignorance that took for granted energy, strength & elasticity.
It occurred to me that this physical path parallels that of my inner journey. As I’ve gotten older, my priorities have evolved and what once made sense doesn’t always fit anymore.
Take some time to write about what no longer fits in your world.
