This weeks #WorkoutForWhatWednesday! is very personal. You know what I hear all the time? “ Krystina, you’re never gonna walk again, why are you working out?
Because Kimmie asked me to walk. Because she doesn’t know the injury was 17 years ago and doctors said I would never walk. Because she’s 3 and still believes in magic...and so do I.
For those of you with little ones around who have never known you before you couldn’t walk, they don’t understand why. The little ones will grab you by the hand and look you in the eyes and say “ Come on dance with me “or “Come on, walk and take me to the park”. Looking at Kimmie‘s little fingers wrapped around mine, her big beautiful brown baby eyes looking up at me and asking me to walk or help her do something she’s still too little to do at times is emotionally devastating BUT it’s also the greatest motivation I’ve had in a while. I choose to focus on the later.
Sure, I still may never walk beside her or run with her in a park, but she’ll know that I never gave up, and that’s more important than anything.
Anyone who has ever raised kids knows, kids don’t do what you tell them to do, they do what they see you do. So teach them how to show up. How to keep pushing forward in the face of adversity. How to give your best everyday in everything you do. Teach them to never give up. Teach them how to live well by Example.
