twenties series: [four] body

once a body part is injured, it will never be the same and will never get back to its original state. it’s no secret that i have been shattered and broken through the years, my history is longer than what you can imagine. many think i am crazy for not taking the necessary breaks when i am injured and making premature and spontaneous decisions to return to action. in the past i have always believed bumps and bruises won’t stop me from doing what i do, neither does sprains and breaks. thankful for the handful of people who takes care of me and picks me up when i fall and gets me back in the game; plus the numerous people have been around to always remind me to tame it down. i still believe that but i am much more aware and concerned with the risks i take. the older i grow, the more i understand the importance of taking care of my body and doing the necessary rehab. i learned that are no shortcuts and abbreviated version of the road to recovery, i wished i learned that before my body lost the ability to sense pain and stopped sending my brain the correct stimuli. i can guarantee i am working much harder to recover correctly, taking care of my problems head on and get back stronger. i will not give up the sports i love, but i will do all with more caution and continue to do the maintenance work required. i think i am starting to understand the saying take care of your body, it’s the only thing you have to live in
