Ode to my body

Yesterday, I walked 50km (31,3miles) in about 8,5 hours. Today, I respect and appreciate my body more than ever.

I am young and never had severe health issues. No broken bones. No allergies.

My body always worked for me without much care.

Right now, when I stand up my hips and knees are aching. Putting weight on my feet hurts, because of some blisters.

Still, my body serves me unconditionally.

Today, I’ll take some time to treat it. To help it restore its normal power. I need it for more adventures in the future.

Today, I’ll remember as an important lesson to never take the energy and health I have for granted.

Health is not valued ‘till sickness comes — Thomas Fuller

Be bold, be wild, be wonderful!
