I'm doing much contemplating right now. Turning 50 in May has made me look critically at many of my choices and She Chooses is helping me to do that as well. I am WORKING OUT 6 days a week and feel soreness almost every day. Although my body is not yet acclimated to the physical soreness, I know that its absence means that I am not progressing. I'm also fully aware that the choices that I make now in middle age will go a long way to dictate what kind of life I will lead in old age.
I've also come to the realization that I need to have some emotional and spiritual soreness as well in order to live my best life.
Soreness - it's much better than stagnation or deterioration!
