Seeing as today’s adventures in Tuckton were postponed but I’m still meeting up with Lorna, Ian, Leo and Muggzy for a frolic in the brinal area of Milford on Sea before a well deserved communal dining experience at a nearby Thai restaurant... I may as well make an attempt on reflecting upon the past six days.
Was it a spiritual journey?
Did I learn anything?
Was I reminded anything that I had easily forgotten?
Mainly thanks to Rachael…. it was a refreshing week that officially began on Tuesday afternoon down by the sea after feeling frustrated about trivial matters the day before….
Tuesday was also the day that I decided that I would like to consider being a part of a group of swimming buddies aptly called The Reservoir Frogs... and despite my unpredictable levels of social anxiety per day…. I didn’t just swim with them on the Thursday…. BUT also on the Saturday.
Including swimming, I also made the time to meditate at home in the backyard and do stretching exercises on Hengistbury Head beach.
That’s definitely something I need to keep up with to keep my mind at ease and my body flexible... especially my long, lanky legs.
I was in temporary agony at stupid o’clock this morning from a muscle cramp in my left leg and that always happens when I’ve started doing some exercise again.
In regards to that, something similar happened to my left (why is it always the left?!) ear which I noticed on Wednesday...
It was still bothering me until I got the opportunity to inform my guardian brother about it on Thursday just before midnight and then booked an appointment with both a nurse practitioner a few hours later who suggested to me to wear a nose clip every time I go swimming.
I was nearly panicking!
Thinking that it was some form of tinnitus… when really, it was just from seawater and somehow that issue went the same way it came in.
Swimming in the sea first thing in the morning was a spiritual delight but then I found myself dozing off as soon as I was back home!
Friday was my 41st cycle which was a blessing in regards to including that in my memoirs before I finish reflecting upon a year in my existence.
What I like the most about birthdays is that they’re like gigs.
A time to reunite with friends and family as well as reflect upon how far I have come in life as well as being more grateful for the things I have in the amount of knowledge that I have gained.
Saturday morning was a wish come true.
To see all that I could see under the waters of Dorset with cheap and affordable gear!
Maybe the tiredness and drowsiness after swimming in the ocean was a way of the cosmos telling me that I had a lot of sleep to catch up on!
It’s now 22:58 and after a refreshing shower to get rid of all the salty water from Milford on Sea out of my hair... I shall spend some time cleaning up my room before I can finally get to go to sleep.
