Hey guys, the past two weeks have been wild weather. Just my luck, as my laptop charger broke after surviving years of jiggling to get it to work, and finally needed to be replaced. The weather has been rainy, hot, cold and with even up to 99% humidity. During this time we had public holidays in Hong Kong so the stores were closed. I wasn’t able to venture out to buy another charger with the dangers and the stores being closed, but all is good and charging again.
Without further ado, here is my current experience with time and getting better:
Time passes by so slow, I feel like this past year has been dragging behind, and all I’m doing is waiting for time to pass so I can start fully living. I’m so sick of being like a hermit crab and waiting for time to pass by so I could change my shell. At least I’m trying to shorten this time by being proactive and trying to do what I can to speed up my recovery. My friends always ask me, “ Wassup?” and pinching my fingers together I reply, “ Just training and getting a bit better everyday. Rehab and resting”, showing the amount of progress made with the space between my fingers.
The life style I live right now is very zened out and kind of movie like. I focus on training everyday to get better. I feel like an old man, and I say this not by age, but because everyday I’m exhausted and in pain from recovering, growing new nerves, and desensitizing the nerves. I really want to be good, and so I exercise now, not because I’m keeping active, but because I need to and want to.
It is also a different period in my life where I am allowed and have to focus on healing or else I won’t be able to do anything else. For what I do now will heavily impact the rest of my life with everything I do. Persistence makes practice, and practice makes the habit. It is in our daily habits of how we do the smallest things, that impact how we do the biggest things in life.
A lot of people say time passes by when you’re having fun. Before my injury it was going by without enough hours in the day, but I guess now I must not be having that much fun, but at least time I’m making progress. We don’t have to love what we do, but we have to do what we need to, to get where we should.
You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.
What daily practices are you doing everyday?
