We’re developing a pattern here: one good day, one bad day, lather, rinse, repeat.
Yesterday was awesome, so naturally today had to suck.
We were at Skydive San Diego all day yesterday while I took a course to learn how to fly my parachute more effectively. It was a massive success and I made a huge breakthrough. I even walked away with improved ways of teaching the basics to my own students. I got to soak up knowledge from one of the top dudes in the sport. Such a win! Well worth the money, time and considerable effort to get down there. I highly recommend the Flight-1 course to any skydiver! I just wish I didn’t wait 8 years to finally take it.
Our friend Whitney came over tonight and performed a killer massage on Nick and taught me some manual lymphatic drainage techniques to use on his stumps. She also brought some special stump compression socks that are made with silver. He loves the way they feel!
It felt really good when Whitney told us how healthy we look. She said we are “practically the picture of health.” I work so hard everyday to keep us in good food, clean water, healthful movement and peaceful energy. It’s nice to be noticed for it, even though we are truly doing it for ourselves.
Our health is my number one priority right now, and I can see it remaining that way from now on. I learned at an early age that if you don’t have your health, you don’t have much. In my youth I didn’t always seek to live a healthy lifestyle, but I’ve always recognized the benefits of doing so. It’s a lot of effort to be healthy, maybe that’s why more people don’t do it.
We have a hellacious busy week ahead of us. Hope we can keep our shit together long enough to power through it…and maybe even enjoy the process.
