Day 211; Stretch Yourself

Stretch Yourself

Back in the day, when my knees were working and I could lift more weight than I weighed, I learned that if you wanted to be good at weight lifting and body building, then you had to be good at stretching.

If you do not bend, you will break; in spirit, mind and body.

Each morning, before I get out of bed to start my day, I begin a series of stretches.

·         I stretch my body—I bend and flex across my bed allowing my blood to flow and my joints to get the necessary juices.

·         I stretch my mind—I recall the dreams from the night before and begin to write on the tablet I keep near my bed. I allow my nocturnal musings to become ideas of creativity and possible thoughts for another day.

·         I stretch my spirit—allowing it to soar to places my body can not go meditating on the past and future so that I can spend that day in the now.

Get up and stretch. Become more flexible in spirit, mind and body.

Be you, be well, be not broken
