My therapist in this picture is bending my leg so that, eventually, it will cross over my other leg. I use this in flipping over to execute a floor to chair transfers, push-ups, and even floor to bed transfers. Waiting on acquiring this movement would lead to a 1-2 month setback, due to my legs getting too stiff. We focused on making the most out of the time we had and that laid the building blocks for even more advanced mobility moves…
Jesus also understood the value of time. HE would often depart from his disciples, for days at a time, to become fully focused in prayer with his Father. This time was used to lay the foundation for the greatest works known to date. In life… you can do the same. Take time with HIM and build the frame for something greater.
Why is this so important?
“How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.”
Now it’s not all work and no play, we should all strive to get out and really enjoy the life HE has provided for us. At the same time, you can make your “playtime” valuable too. Now I’m not saying you should seek “The Hangover “ experience every time you roll out, but…do things that will tickle your cerebellum every time the memory crosses your mind! One way I value my time as an abled body and now as a differently abled body is through new adventures with my inner circle. Paint classes, concerts, participating in a walk/run/wheel event, eating at a new restaurant once a month, rock climbing, or para-flying. Whatever it is… do it and challenge you comfort zone with your people! Even if things don’t go as smoothly as you thought it would… relax, reflect, repeat. Make it yours… Then praise HIM for the ability to have that time.
