I don’t really do videos. I get … nervous. More of a word person than a verbal person. Nevertheless, I thought I would wing it because if I do maybe I will improve slowly as I go along. You never know, eh? This introvert can learn new things… maybe.

If it sounds a bit rambling, well, maybe it is. But it is literally the second time I have ever made a video for anything at all.

  1. You did a great job!! Pushing through pain is so misunderstood. What angers me is that I even told that by my rheumatologist! So I pushed and pushed until my body began mimicking signs of a stroke. That was my wake up call. Pushing through pain all of the time creates more pain than our bodies know what to do with.

    1. I was so nervous… which is weird because my fear of public speaking shouldn’t be a factor when no one is actually watching me in that moment. lol Nevertheless… it is what it is.


  2. First, you have a very good presence in the video. Very natural, like hearing from a friend, but an educated one😏
    Also, thank you for your words of wisdom. Didn’t sleep last night and my hip has been hurting since Friday when I had a great day of fun with a lot of physical activity. I was going to push through a day commitments, today but instead am now going to take it easy. Luckily, now that I’m retired, I can do that. I had pushed through several years until kast year this time I couldn’t go any longer and went on long term leave that forced my retirement. It’s taken a year to get to the point where I am able to tentatively make plans agsin. However, the temptaion is great to push through because I don’t want to miss out. Today, I will rest because my body is obviously calling for it.

    1. Thank you for your kind words. I’m glad you liked it. Sorry that you exceeded your limits but sometimes it is worth the cost… in the life we get to live


  3. You did really well on this Vlog! I think your message really is important. I push through all the time then absolutely crash and burn! I grew very tired of existing… I couldn’t keep up with even that, finally losing everything. This, allowed me to pace. I can live again! Great vlog!
