I love to move my body - I often describe myself as 'created to move'. I preach to anyone who will listen about how important it is to 'move your body as often as possible and in as many ways as possible!'
A few days ago I planted seeds in my brand new raised bed garden - super exciting! As I was watering them, my hose broke. I was annoyed about the timing - now that I need my hose every day, it breaks! In order to water the seeds (and the other various plantings throughout my yard), I decided to use my watering can - and I was grateful to have one! I found myself agitated with the many trips I had to make between the watering spicket and my garden. For those who know where I live, you're probably laughing... I literally had to walk about 60/70 feet to refill my watering can!
Around the 3rd trip, I realized this was actually an opportunity! -to move my body more and in slightly new ways! I played around with using different hands to water with (feels more strange than you'd think!), squatting and balancing on different legs while filling the watering can, etc. Suddenly the agitation gave way to gratitude.
In case you are wondering, I did not decide to make this new way of watering THE way. I bought a new hose and it arrived today!!! I will happily use it AND will continue to look for new 'opportunities' to move (more) of my body more of the time!'
