I enjoy synchronicity, it makes me feel connected to the energy of life, beyond my schedule. Synchronicity offered a change of events, on Monday. I didn’t do grandma duties. Instead, my grandson and his daddy bonded with no distractions.
When offered grandma duties on Tuesday, I said sure. What I didn’t realize, was that I would be doing three days straight of non-stop exercise, with my four-month-old grandson. Bend, lift, stretch, squat, repeat. Wow. Every muscle and joint in my body feels worn out, old, wimpy. Not good. I thought I was in better shape.
This means, today, I have to be careful while working on my screenplay. When I get too into the zone, I start to stiffen and cramp. My daddy said, “Getting old is not for the weak and feeble.” He meant, it takes a lot of work, and conscious attention, to age well and keep active.
I now know my limits. Two days in a row is my grandma limit. Synchronicity surprises us, but we learn something too. This past month, I learned having baby time makes me feel younger, energetically. But this week I realized, I’m physically older, so need to pamper me, in my body today.
