Return. Sorry. Tribe
I am so sorry that I have taken almost 6+ months off but we all need breaks every now and then. I needed a break from running. I needed a break from blogging. I needed to reflect. I needed to remember what Dystonia means to me.
Dystonia is here to stay. There is not a day that I don’t think, OMG it’s getting worse. OMG, I sneezed, I moved a wire. But more importantly, daily, I remember gratitude. I remember how incredibly lucky I am. I remember in every workout class or every step on the treadmill that I am lucky. I am thankful. I have gotten smarter in my old age. I have realized that practicing gratitude everyday is what’s important. Every day is a gift, every day is my hallmark holiday and that holiday is gratitude.
I am also thankful for my tribe. These 2 –
These 2 are part of my initial tribe, they meant so much to me 30 years ago and they mean even more today. I am thankful for these two more than ever in this stage of life. They both constantly remind me that I am an amazing person and more importantly they are amazing to me…these brothers, make me laugh on good days and bad days and I am sitting here today thankful. But what is most significant about these two, is that there was never a day in 30 years of friendship that they told me that I couldn’t do something or said they felt sorry for me. These two are in my tribe, these two have seen me for who I am not what disease I have. Today, I am thankful.
