Moving…

Moving…

Making choices, clearing room

Time to think, to stretch, to value, to love

Being present, living life

Over the last few months I’ve focused on building up my exercise levels to a point that I can maintain a consistent exercise regime including stretches, a relatively consistent step count, and regular bike rides on my electric bike. Moving my body with the aim of reducing pain levels and increasing energy.

I’ve also helped several friends and family members to move house. It’s been interesting to see the different ways people pack, how they prioritise what to keep, add or give away, and who they have to help them move. I am glad that although I physically couldn’t help much with any of the moves, I was there to support my friends and family.

My brain has been less foggy lately as well. Yes, I still have days that I’m crashed and everything is a struggle but in general I’ve had a clearer head. This has let me move forward on my projects, progress my study, and consider taking on new opportunities that fit my values and allow me to grow.

Everyone in life is moving in one way or another. In most cases though we’re all moving in many different ways all at once.

Physically, mentally and emotionally we’re always moving.

In what ways are you moving at the moment?

 


Congratulations & Thank You…

So today my husband, E, participated in a charity ride called Amy’s Ride here in South Australia with a few of our friends. He completed a 100 km course and was still able to smile at the other end (although he was pretty exhausted).

I’d like to congratulate everyone who participated in the event. E said he thought there was over 3,000 participants.
The ride was to raise money for the Amy Gillett Foundation. Their website says:

The Amy Gillett Foundation is a charity with one purpose – reducing the incidence of death and injury of bike riders.
The Foundation was born out of tragedy, the death of Amy Gillett, who was hit by an out of control motorist whilst cycling with her National Team mates in Germany. Since our inception we have been a catalyst for change, focused on what should be, rather than what is.

I know that some of you supported E in this ride by sponsoring him and both of us would like to say a big THANK YOU to you.
Anyone else who was interested in supporting this charity to make our roads a safer place for everyone, the fundraising page is still open here.
