I was voted best legs in high school at a time when I had a raging eat!ng dis0rder, undiagnosed narcolepsy, and anxiety that was totally unchecked. I’ve since gained over 30 pounds through recovery and lost a ton of muscle as I continue to work on finding a healthy relationship with exercise.
The Gift of Time
What I’ve learned through teaching my students, through training Olive, and through parenting Hadley is that there is no greater gift than the gift of time. Creatures want the people they love to care about them enough that they’ll put down the distractions to really *be* with them. Kids want us to stop washing the dishes so we can play together. They want us to take the extra time at night to read them one more book. Our dogs want us to pick up the tug toy that hasn’t been touched in three days, and to extend the daily walk by just 5 minutes.
