Lol...I definitely do the opposite of about everything you described, no wonder it doesn't work, I can't wait to try! I think I will first just concentrate on the teqniques and not worry about putting to much speed to it. 

Oh, you see I first though you were a ren'shai because of your post, if I somehow in my confusion managed to be of any assistance though, I'm very happy😃

Back when I was a teenager, the summer camp I went to--(Nerdiness complete, we called it "Smart Camp") was obsessed with Ultimate Frisbee, and despite my catching capabilities, I learned, became one of the major players, and was able to call myself a jock.

 

I can understand--and, as I've said, this might be the place for me.  Today I had a massage therapy appointment and am almost straight by now, but can't walk all that well tonight because of it and am staying inside--(things keep moving hours afterward, these nights can be STRANGE, but I'm very happy during them)- talk about physical and staying healthy!  Yup, thanks Lava.  I'll call myself a Ren'shai.

That is AWESOME!!! Well not the walking part but that will be better tomorrow, right?  

And may I be the first to congratulate (unofficial ofcourse since I presume there will be a ceremony)! Yey!!!! 👏🎉

Thanks!  Yup, I'm a Ren'shai.

 

I'm almost straight and flexible enough now that I might be able to begin forgetting I've ever limped--almost.  Then, she'll be able to work more on my right arm/hand, and once they're flexible enough I can start learning to use them again.  Who knows--they say I was right handed before it all happened, so my catching capabilities might come back with my right hand.  I've been the "athlete no one'd guess" most my life, maybe soon I can just be an athlete.  

 

Stay healthy, Lava--it can be hard, sometimes!  But try to stay healthy, accept and forgive yourself when you can't always keep it up and show yourself mercy, we're human--but then get up and try again.    Small gradual changes and replacing old habits usually works better than huge changes and quitting habits.  And be grateful for what you have.  It's hard, sometimes, I know!  But, you can be grateful for the hardest cruelest events in your life if you decide they are lessons.  It's all a matter of perspective.

That must be so exciting! Ah..yeah I know people can train themselves to use the other hand when their main hand is not usable, I'm so amazed everytime I see it, my right hand is totally useless lol. 

I'm not sure why people would think you to be the athlete they never guessed? Because of stereotypes, like because you are also smart, or because of your health issues?  

If so, that just helped make me believe you are a ren'shai, cause I know how much more important health and working out became to me when I got sick. And staying healthy is smart so ofcourse athletes are smart😃

Awwwww........

Yeah totally agree! getting sick and feeling I lost my youth was hard, but after accepting it, I became a much more positive person, I learned to appreciate the small things in life and to laugh a lot. I still have inhumane high expectations for myself though (so yeah I needs to hear that sometimes, lol thanks!), my trainer always said they weren't used to having to actually put boundaries on people and not encourage haha..😄

@LiithaYup, I'm a Manshima. I haven't risen completely to the top yet, but I am that.

 

 

Lava-- Thanks!  I don't remember learning my left--I was too young--but apparently I was a rightie.  I'm not an athlete at first sight.  It's health.  But my view on the whole situation is:  "Doubt all you wish, but do not dismiss."  

 

And yes, I've been insanely cruel to myself in that way, too.  It can be hard to accept you're not perfect.

Lol I meant more if u cleared your joining the disc with whomever is in charge these days, looks to @JamesBrown @ThorkinBarrimore @Vanion

 

 

Also since ya all so active these days you can help yourself to runing the ren'shai activety..is sure some of you aspies can benefit from it in your reqs

 

In case u didnt run into it, warders used to run on an alternating rotation schedule where each month one disc did an discusion (cuen this month), activety (ren'shai) and one visited an ajah (mea'areath visiting the blues)

 

So go come up with a game or some such to run here in the yard 😉

ugh. "healthy" cake. Would you like some caffeine free coffee and non-alcoholic beer to wash it down? You have 350 days out of the year to be healthy! give yourself the 15 days to indulge!

Thank you Thorkin, i already do! 

 

What are everyone up to in these misfortunate times? We have been doing family zumba and yoga, and dancing, these last days. We are allowed to go for walks but the weather has been less than desirable (snowstorm and 74mph)

Well, I work at a Casino Resort Hotel and they've been closed for a couple

of weeks due to that COVID-19 going around. So, I'm catching up on

Netflix shows and a few good books.

I watched "The Secret" last night, and got a free coffee this morning because of it.

 

I've picked up the guitar again in the last few weeks and am fairly good so far.  Played more than an hour last night, an hour tonight, and have recorded a few songs--putting them up on Facebook or sending them to friends.  I'm planning on getting to know my guitar A LOT BETTER in these next few months.

Oooh...the documentary or the horror movie? I could definitely be interested in watching the documentary when my head is more cooperative, the horror movie..not so much lol.. I don't do horrors😆

I learned a little guitar once upon a time..I wish I had one..I do play and have a synth, but I'm thinking guitar is so much more useful for taking with you to gatherings and just play a little tune..Do you compose your own songs?

Ok I took it upon myself to help fulfill the Ren'shai's monthly task:

The documentary.  It's intriguing.  The Law of Attraction is a rabbit hole within a rabbit whole, but, in my experience, it can work.  

 

I've written one song--(that, since I'm bored and want to show off, I've recorded and posted here).  I named it "The Bullet Had Missed." I heard that from a reporter a day or two after Katrina, when everyone was still trying to figure out what had happened.  I haven't written more, though.  Maybe that's a project for the next few months?
