day 1661 Рgstrings revamped 

four months is a long time to go without having played a dodgeball game. my thumb is heavily taped up and ready to get this season underway. as expected, i was rusty with my throwing, catching and timing. i’m in no position to complain because just being on the court with my teammates and friends is a luxury i haven’t had in far too long. i never take being able to walk on and off the court unscathed for granted. i know that with play, slowly but surely i’ll work my way back into my game form

day 1499 – worked up

sorting out my feelings got me more down. such a downer i had no appetite despite being hungry, loss of words despite wanting to converse, no interest in working out despite it being my happy place. because a dear friend reminded me that i must treat myself well and do what makes me happy – that got me to the gym today. always reiterated and reminded that should i be undervalued, i have no obligations to be taken for granted. i made it to the gym today which made me happier, but not a good one when failing on my routine stuff

day 1423 – box jumping

jumping my boxes is a liberty i no longer take for granted. actually, there’s very liberty i take for granted as my body has learned the hard way over the years. box jumps has been sparse ever since beginning my rehab with chiro. of the times i tried the past seven weeks, i either only managed a thirty box or stopped short in excruciating hip pain. two weeks into kineisiologist rehab today, i’m back on boxes and made a thirty nine box. the most positive note to take away is pain free jumps. i hope to keep up with the no advil days

here’s a little side thought of the moment. i find myself always helping, always accommodating and always putting others well being before mine but sadly i don’t get the same in return. many of my efforts and achievements are undermined; taking what i do ¬†and give for granted and ends up being borderline inconsiderate. not that i seek recognition; if it’s seen, it’s seen, i’m tired of trying show that i care. life is a two way street and sometimes being appreciative is a good thing. just snowballing and needed to get it off my chest

day 1119 – demeanour

image

sometimes when you get comfortable seeing something you forget to appreciate the little things that surround you. taking things for granted happens; it happens with things, it happens with people. i guess i can’t be too bothered because a good day at the gym cancels it out and also makes up for my last subpar performance. i am happy i made new ground today and i know there’s more to come. once again, it reminds me pr’s are meant to be broken, limits are meant to be surpassed and goals are meant to be reached

day 879 – fisting

image

for the first time in two weeks, i can finally fully close my hand to make a fist. it’s by no means comfortable in that position and it’s trying to resist that motion, but just being able to do so painfree is a huge breakthrough. fifteen days of not being able to close my hand cost me many days of missed but necessary training. even though my gyming continued, lots had to be forfeited or altered to compensate for the finger. i never realized how essential fisting was, but it became hard learned knowledge

take the good with the bad

note that not everyday will be the best day of your life because there’s only one in a lifetime and one must live through its entirety before recognizing that. everyone has a different standard and perspective on what good is, it is just a matter of coping with what’s granted to us because most likely someone out there has less than you and is still content with what they have. i must learn to stay positive even at times when it seems like nothing is going right. always be reminded that one bad day doesn’t stay that way because there will a chance to start off fresh the very next day. as long as the good days outweighs the bad days, there’s nothing to complain about. after all, it’s your life and it’s what you make out of it
