Adapting – Doing it again and again!

Back in January, I posted about “Adapting through Fear”.

Recalling experiences about struggling when trying to get around equipment training a few years back. It was daunting, scary & I felt vulnerable. I delved into those moments you realise that everyone is pushing to achieve their own goals, fine tune their own habits but in addition, happy to help along the way.

Back then, much like over the last few weeks, I realised it’s actually ok not be ok – I learnt that it’s ok to use Fear as a tool, to feel it, take some time to see through it, BUT to see and realise and apply that previous change of mindset again, I can determine how to react to this situation. 

Anything that it is thrown our way will get a reaction, what response, any response, is down to us. We can also help along the way, share experiences, listen and learn from others and it can help us adapt to the situation in front of us.

So, as some of us prepare to get back in the gym in a couple of weeks, we will all have to adapt some changes, we react & I’m thankful for opportunity to do what I love & we’ll find a way to make it happen…again!💪

Bringing you the latest in not only my personal journal into the world of disability Bodybuilding, but a discovery into latest events, profiles, news and promoting awareness of this great sport Based in Bristol in the UK, I’ve been competing in Disability Bodybuilding for the last 3 years in a journey which has taken me all over the country to national, international & world championships and I am so so grateful for that opportunity that had changed my life. Living with Cerebal Palsy has its challenges, but everyone has their individual hurdles to negotiate. Gaining strength both physically & mentally and adapting to the surrounding is all part of this journey. This is a mission to raise awareness, to promote our great category to develop opportunities for others. Please get in touch if you’d like to discuss more!
