It’s been a long time since I wanted to start a blog. I have even included this task into my to do list, but have been postponing it again and again for years. Between university, work, sport activities, language lessons, social life, travel arrangements and just what we call “life” there was never a time slot for writing. But then I had these bad news about my back pain and I decided that the time has come. A sad occasion to start a blog, I agree… But I am not planning on keeping it sad, just the opposite! I want it to help me to find a bright side of everything that happens in my life and to enjoy it no matter what.
If you asked me about my biggest hobby, that would be sport. That’s my passion and something that makes me very happy. I had a lot of plans for this autumn: working hard on my gymnastics progress, getting back to tennis court, doing resistance training, dancing flamenco, attending swimming lessons to improve my technique and I even had a crazy idea of preparing for triathlon xD But the diagnosis says “herniated discs” and I can not even do my favorite gymnastics, let alone tennis court or triathlon. I will be going for swimming once a week and I will keep attending flamenco classes (I hope I can do that), the rest has to be set aside. In the beginning I thought that was devastating. And unfair. And why tf this is happening to me?! But then I realized that I could not dwell on it constantly, be depressed about the chronic pain and all the things I can not do for now, instead I should start concentrating on the things I can and should do. I need to take a break from active sport, I need to give a rest to my body and I need to put all my effort into back therapy. And as I have more free time now, I can start doing things that were always postponed… Like creating this blog!
I am not sure what will be the content of these pages. Something about health, something about sport, something about travels. Delicious breakfasts as well, friendships all over the world, languages and who knows maybe even about schattenmorellen! 😉
