One of the reasons I indulge in exercise perhaps even over indulge is because of my obsession to continually challenge myself. I secretly couldn't bare the thought of physically not being able to try out new things when I wanted, but that was unfortunately my reality when I raptured my quadricep in 2015.
So many lessons came out of that experience and acknowledging that things would be a little different from now on. One thing that stood out the most was the fact that I had negligent the two constants that will always be in the days that our bodies do not function the same anymore, the Mind and the Spirit. In the period I was unable to do any exercise I spent reconnecting and nurturing these forgotten sides to myself. In a sense I always feel like this experience was all part of gods plan to quieten all other distractions so I could focus on what is important. 2years down the line I'm still going through rehabilitation, and getting back to what I enjoy doing the most...But certainly with a different perspective.
