Ego & Movement

We are scared to move our bodies; scared to look stupid or silly. So we often hold our bodies in, limbs close to our sides, heads down facing the dirt. Our bodies were meant to move, meant to look silly, meant to squirm.

Think of a child who can’t sit still. We berate them, but they are just doing want the body wants to do: move, until for potentially beneficial reasons for society we drill the freedom, comfort, and ease of movement out of them.

We are all a little scared to move freely, but if we can release some of our ego, movement will become easier. We need to stop worrying about how we look and let the body move more like children.

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.
