I was reminded again…that my threshhold for pain is fairly high.
In these moments, do you throw your your hands up and celebrate this compliment?
Or perhaps bend over, hands propping your body up on your knees, and drop your head just weary from the journey…
I didn’t start out this way.
I was very soft and sensitive and protected…weak.
Little by little, one life experience at a time…this changed.
I think it was not a choice I was aware of making.
There is some quote about how it doesn’t matter how many times you fall down, because it is all about how many times you get back up…that’s about right.
Whether emotional or physical, through my opportunities for growth…I somehow figured out that when I dig in my heels and flex my shoulder muscles, there is really nothing that can knock me down.
This might be the coolest realization in the world.
Come on then…
It seems I’m ready.
