“Reset” is defined as: ‘to set, adjust, or fix in a new or different way; to move (something) back to an original place or position · to put (a broken bone) back in the correct position.” After suffering from a severely broken wrist, then two cracked ribs, (yes back to back), getting back to normal has been a very slow process. But maybe my old normal wasn’t all that great and I need to reinvent myself. “Reinvent” is defined as: “change (something) so much that it appears to be entirely new.”
Let’s face it…pain sucks. Prolonged pain is debilitating. One of the definitions of debilitating is “weak.” Which in turn is defined as: “lacking the power to perform physically demanding tasks; lacking physical strength and energy.” I don’t think my issue is lacking mental strength. It is the physical issues from being broken. I am a figure skater and along with that are serious risks. But, I can’t stop skating or my mental health will also greatly suffer. Although I am ecstatic about being nominated for, “Best Feature Screenplay,” my physical body is worn out. But I need to reset myself because in the very near future, I am traveling.
Summer Ray and the project are ALWAYS on my mind. I need to now have laser sharp focus and make sure I will make the right decisions as to where we go from here. I trust my team to help me with the process. Although my heart and mind are excited, my body is not. All of me must be in optimal condition to be my best. I may be giving a pitch and if I am out of it, worn out and just plain not feeling well – what will happen to my pitch? Someone in the audience might want to donate, invest or be a part of the cast or crew. If I give a bad performance – I give the project a bad one too. I represent the story of Summer Ray.
The point of all of this, is that we represent our projects. If I feel bad now and do not spend the time fixing me, people will take notice. My enthusiasm and passion for the project must be present, or who would want to help us? I need to be full of life for project. But due to injuries and other life issues, I have fallen deep into a ditch of being lethargic. I have felt sluggish and spiritless. I have had zero energy and everything has felt like a chore. I need to be rejuvenated and to have my strength renewed and my energy back.
So what do I do? I look at my diet. I look at my exercise. I look at my stress levels. Why did I break two ribs? Because I just wasn’t thinking. I was over stressed and crashed into the tub. This with a recovering broken left wrist at the same time. A lot of people blamed my age (58). No! I blame me not listening to my body. I should never have been on the ice the day I broke my wrist. I was still suffering from the fatigue of the Covid vaccine. But I thought I would miss something – well I did. Two months off the ice. Then broken ribs which resulted in more loss of ice time.
Get a grip and get it together! This is the dawn of a new day.
See, I feel better already. I have Texas in my very near future. I have to get myself together and I will!
