Not gonna lie

Medical provider, self check in screen
Yesterday. Made the appointment before the eye exam. Was not expecting encouraging news. And wanted to over-focus on bloodwork to look for clues.

i ain’t a Saint, but i dang sure try to always excel at the basics.

dad

Not gonna lie.

When Quest’s email for 30% off the comprehensive blood test arrived a few days ago, i finally jumped on it after deleting similar emails for a few years.

This blood work, using insurance, would have to wait until March 2024. Past insurance requests for “extra” or “sooner” (like January or February) have been denied.

i do not want to wait four more months to see under the hood.

So, the timing was pushing me to pay out of pocket. It’s an expense that feels 100% like a lifetime investment.

Trying to play it cool

9-second video: Trying to stay cool, calm, and collected.

Life gives random tests we all want to pass, but never want to take. Build your foundation to pass these tests when they come. Bank on them coming when you aren’t ready.

Nearly four months ago, i easily recall how in 30 seconds i surrendered to a possible reality of permanently losing sight in one eye.

We are here

Washington State sign
The original selfie was using a tripod and a self-timer. And running from the tripod to the photo spot. i did that here.

We had $200 cash. We had unlimited time. We had imagination. We enjoyed having freedom.

We literally planned the days the night before, or in the mornings while making breakfast.

Oldest or youngest, physically?

Car Gas line leak
The critter-made fuel line hole created this leak while fueling at gas pump.

Move, fuel, and rest your body. Do the daily reps. Until death do you part.

Better to be the oldest person in the gym or the youngest person in the nursing home?

Moving differently brings me joy

Shelves full of boxed candy
Movie Theater snack options. i ain’t a saint, but i got decent common sense.

Moving differently brings me joy.

dad

In eighth grade i had a vision to become a Health and Physical Education teacher.

Why?

To help our world become healthier.

Even in the early 1970’s as a middle-schooler, i could tell society didn’t focus on physical vibrancy. Perhaps because i excelled at it.

And maybe i excelled at it because deeper inside me was a burning desire to excel at something and what child doesn’t like to play?

Playing outdoors, speed and strength, but especially speed, made you stand out.

What child doesn’t enjoy feeling extra special?

If you want to feel extra special, also known as extraordinarily blessed, in your later years, get and stay physically vibrant.
