Knee’s Pain Is Like A Reminder
That Is Needed Because Sometimes people forget to check their realities.
Last week, my knee pain problem started because I walk around 20 000 steps daily and lead Zumba classes. Probably, my leg was too tired. There is always a thin line between mania and doing something moderately to success slow and steady.
Unfortunately, I blur that line too often because of my passion for doing everything I love as much as possible, leading to reminders like the one with my knee.
Balance is a significant factor in successful personal and professional life, but it is challenging to achieve. I continuously learn to find equilibrium in my life.
When I understand how, I will share my knowledge, for sure. That will be my Secret to a good living. 🙂
While listening to my favorite blues writing music, my knee reminds me I am moving way too fast forward, and not many people can keep up with me. I am unsure if that is for good or worse, but I keep walking with a happy smile for waking up daily to write and dance.
I believe it’s worth feeling positive each beautiful morning while I drink my coffee on the terrace. Don’t you think?
Tomorrow will be another great day because eight years ago, I gave birth to my daughter, who changed my whole life for the better. Many people do not want children, saying it’s not worth it for innocent souls to live in that cruel world.
But for me, more children are needed to teach and remind adults how to live to the fullest with joy.
I may sound harsh, but people who don’t want children are running away from responsibility and themselves. They can hate me as much as they want because everyone makes their choices. I plan to have more children in the future, one way or another.
The only true love is between a parent and child.
Now, let’s go back to the knee problem, which is the cause of the blog post, but I got distracted by my fast-flowing thoughts.
Training or running too much brings both pleasure and tiredness. The same goes when people do their work passionately and forget to take breaks for long periods. Outside stopping or initializing movement through life is present in every moment of human lives. The energy between work and relaxation should be equal because otherwise, the person becomes like an empty glass without the will to move on.
What did Knee pain teach me?
I felt sad I couldn’t dance and realized that the old patterns in relationships, or health habits, will never lead to new, interesting, and productive creations. I learned for myself that changing my diet will help me improve for Zumba classes. It is good the Zumba founders sent me a special Nutrition webinar to watch. I am amazed how these people give me every tool to succeed in my Zumba instructor future. In my country, employers are not like that.
Another important lesson from my knee pain was letting go of my self-built limitations to stay wherever is not my place.
Speaking of that, I decided when exactly I will quit my full-time job because of its low-income stability. After all, I feel like a prisoner. Since I am a bit fearful because I have not found another job yet, I am sure of my survival, even without the eight working hours somewhere I feel unfit.
That robs me of my freedom, social contacts, pursuing my passions, and other chances to succeed. I want to soar through life, not be a low-level government employee without identity.
Another reason for my decision is that it’s more expensive to work in an office than to work from home. It takes my half salary to go to work, eat, drink coffee, and waste time traveling. Outside that, the nerves I spend there are not worth it and are not appreciated.
The most important lesson from my knee pain was to make a realistic plan, based on my skills and finances. They are not in great shape now, but I know I can do better. People should believe in themselves even if nobody else does.
If there is someone else that believes in you, keep them close.
Another topic, related to the knee pain I had, was the heartache I felt for a long time, but not anymore, thanks to my last week’s introspection. While my knee healed slowly, my soul did too. I broke up many hurtful relationships with forgiveness. It was not easy, but I decided to become a kinder version of myself, and that could happen only when let go. Letting go with respect, and keeping the good memories it’s far better than doing it with hate or ignorance. It is like karmic liberation that fills my heart with good feelings – they fuel me to keep going toward my dreams.
Things in life are simple indeed: Whatever happened, happened, and what is meant to be, will not change between time and space.
Like a reminder
In daily life, people forget about themselves in general. They forget to relax and start to flow with routines or schedules. Inevitably, that leads to self-doubt and not good feelings. It’s important to have personal time even only for thirty minutes daily. Sicknesses and physical pains are a reminder something is wrong and should be paid attention to. It was my case with the knee and now I will be more careful doing my choreography. The mind’s state also gives the motivation to do something. There should be always peace between heart and mind, otherwise, people become moody and unhappy. That is not good for friends, lovers, children, and productivity.
Relaxing should be done at least one full day every week.
