#ImPOSSIBLE ; )
I married my high school sweetheart. I thought it was for life. When we separated, we had been together for 1/2 my life. My heart wasn't broken, it was smashed to pieces. The pain was overwhelming. I grew up with unconditional love, and suddenly I wasn't loved by him any more. I couldn't get my head around it.
It took me some time to realize that our greatest growth does not come from the good times, it comes from the tough times. I got married when I was 20. I didn't know who I was, so I couldn't be a full partner in my marriage. I picked up and moved from SF to Portland Oregon, months after the divorce was final. Silly me, I also left my entire support system behind and went to a place where I knew no one.
The gift of that moment in my life was first that I was beyond lonely, but once I went through the open window I came out the other side to aloneness. I learned to be good company for myself. I learned to do things alone. I grew enormously as a woman, and as a friend, and eventually as a partner. Growth came from this dark moment in my life.
As the years went by I came to realize that life is a series of ups and downs, but the growth happens in the downs. I learned to practice gratitude. I learned to find ways to find joy. I learned to understand the gifts of the darker moments of my life, and what it taught me. The dark moments made me who I am today. I love the moments of light, but I have also learned to appreciate them because of the moments of dark. And I know that nothing remains the same. And its the gifts from the dark that have allowed me to change and ride the roller coaster.
What have your dark moments and dissapointments taught to you? Are you grateful for them? Embrace the growth.
Knee pain update... but first toning moves complete.
Xrays were just fine. So all I have is knee pain😶 6 weeks physical therapy. Gotta see if that can make the pain go away if not MRI for both knees. In the mean time, no running😔, no squats😫, no bootcamp 😭😭😭..... swim swim swim was ordered. I'll keep bootcamp as I only have one week left, but modify when I need too. And it was recommended that I do not participate in the Hermosa Beach triathlon at the end of June😥😥😶😶😶 have no idea if I'm taking that recommendation.
I was also told that I need to get back to my 2015 Bikini Series weight😔😶 #TIUbikiniseries#FightSong#BeTheBeautyWithinTheBeast#ImPossible @toneitup #TIUteam#sweatingForOurWedding
Me singing a snippet of "Impossible; It's Possible" from the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical "Cinderella". I first heard this song on the 1997 version sung by the wonderful Whitney Houston and Brandy Norwood also. I've loved this song ever since! 🎤😊🎶
