I am spending a couple of days camping at the South Llano River State Park on the Llano River near Junction Texas. I am camping by myself.
I wanted to take some time to be alone.
I grew up an only child. Time alone is nothing new to me. However, how I use that time alone is.
I am 52 now. Who do I want to be?
Not the person my mother wanted me to be. Not the person culture thought I should be but who do I want to be?
I think I know. But I want to reflect.
My health is a big part of this for me.
For me this means, being 160-170 pounds (I am 5’9). Strong. I can do pull-ups and other exercises. And that at least a couple of my abs are showing.
Perhaps, I just want to live longer and better than my mother, grandmother and others in my family.
As Dr. Peter Atia talks about training to be a kick 100 year old. That is who I want to be.
Without your health what do you have?
The irony in 2021 is that I have my iPad Pro with me and I can post to a blog from here. So you could ask the question – how alone am I?
Until Next Time.
