Life is like a rollercoaster. We have ups and downs, twists and turns, and every now and then we're thrown for a loop! Our ability to adapt to the moment and respond instead of react will determine how fun the ride can be.
We start to ask ourselves how graceful can I be as I go up and over that first hill when, woosh, it seems like the ground drops away. When a snapshot it taken of me, will I be cringing with eyes closed (often this is my picture from the rollercoaster ride!), will my arms be high in the sky with mouth open in joy, or better yet will we be posing for our candid camera moment?
When we look back over time and remember snapshots of our life, where are the moments you threw your arms up in the air and just enjoyed the ride? How did it feel?
We can't control what's going on around us, but we can choose how we respond to it. I invite you to become more flexible and strong in your back with these tips below. Something amazing happens when we work with our bodies, the effects spill over into our mindset. Watch how a flexible and strong spine changes your view of the world.
Are you an arms up rollercoaster rider? Or hold on for dear life kinda person?
I hold on to the bar and to Lexi (my little girl, who is a throw your arms in the air kinda gal!). I am working on being more of a throw your arms up kinda gal. Maybe I'll start with one arm this rollercoaster season.
Fill me in on your rollercoaster style in the comments below or over on my facebook page!
lots of love to you!
