Tai Chi

Tai Chi 2 darkI have been working on being more active to fight fatigue so yesterday I washed my car. That’s unusual. I usually wash it about once a year. It sure looks better when it’s clean! Today I went to Tai Chi at the Senior Center. Tai Chi gives me an opportunity to be still. I must admit I found my mind wandering and began to focus on the health I have lost. I caught myself comparing today’s health to the health I experienced  when I was young, like a teenager. How dumb is that? So I changed my thoughts to focus on what I have now and what I can do now, like bend over and touch the floor, and not get out of breath when doing the Tai Chi poses. I noticed too that I was focusing on physical health, so I took a closer look at my emotional, mental and spiritual health. I’ve come a long way since I was a teenager and don’t want to go backwards like I do on my physical health. I also invited myself into the present moment repeatedly, which Tai Chi is made for. Many other people at the Senior Center who took Tai Chi hung around afterwards to socialize. That was great. I could forget about myself and focus on getting to know other people. We all have a story. It’s nice to be on the journey together.

  1. Hi Glenda,

    We, Pat, Carol, you and I have been journeying together for more than 45 years! I’m so grateful to have you all in my life! We have been through wedding, funerals, baby births and the trials and tribulations with our children. I am so glad you are meeting new friends at the center; I can’t write “Senior Center” we can’t be that old! Thank you for continuing the blog so we know how you and Steve are doing. Give him a hug for me. Love & Prayers, Jeanne in CA
