Squat Rehab & Progress Update
It's been an incredibly busy last month with exams, uni and work! I just started a rehab program from my osteopath for a movement specific hip pain (when I squat), and I’m actually quite excited about it - I haven’t squatted or deadlifted for over a week (so hard! :o) and apart from what is the rehab program, won’t for a few more. I am around half way through Primal Prep and leaning down phase now, and while there is still a way to go, I am happy with the progress… just need to keep all my joints happy, too ;)
“You are allowed to be both a Masterpiece and a Work In Progress simultaneously”
My constant and insatiable drive to always do better, be better, live better and micro-optimise in any way possible has opened many doors to growth but also insanity when in a context lacking appreciation and presence in the moment. Keeping this drive while learning to simultaneously really accept and love myself as I am in the moment right now has brought a whole new level of self-compassion and fulfilment. I used to struggle with “I am enough, BUT I can do better”… but maybe the “but” just needs to be changed to an AND.
Life is simultaneously a journey about finding yourself, AND creating yourself (and at the same time, nothing about the “self” - paradoxes within paradoxes!?). Yeah, maybe life is just one big paradox ;)
And a miracle - ready to fly 10'000 feet in the air in a tin box! ;D
