My body. My training.
At the immunization level, our bodies have built up a steady defense at this stage in life. Then there are all the other aspects of knowledge, talents, habits, and even alcohol tolerance. My knowledge of science, vocabulary, religion, even my limited history facts, took a good 20 years to develop up to what I now know. Moreover, my piano skills, musical rhythms, my slow steps at guitar took my willing perseverance to maintain. The comfort at which I drive a car did not happen at a blink of an eye. It took practice. Even my tolerance at spicy food took me a lot of time to adapt. And I cannot forget all the good vegetables, the amount of tea intake and the pills of vitamin C I have swallowed to reassure a solid base.
All this to say: I will not trade my body for any other body. I know it sounds silly… but I will never understand how hard my body is fighting for me, and how far it’s come in its advances. When I look at new born babies and children, I think oh how far they will have to push themselves to learn.. When I reach the age of 30, 40… I don’t think I will ever go back in time to become 20 again (because it’s impossible!), but why would I step backwards and undo another 10, 20 years of work and experience? This is the result of my body that I have come to know and have taken a lifetime to train. With every loss we may encounter, there is always a little gain. Even if we forget what we once knew, it will always be a part of our lives. Life just keeps going forward and we move with it.
Anyways, take care,appreciate yourself and work harder.
