A= π r 2 Something that none of us knew growing up
But as we got older and got more education, we learned
That that’s the formula to find the area of a circle.
I’m thinking of so many things on this ” #πsnowday”
In Philadelphia, one of them being that I maybe
Overdid it a little trying to shovel both
My and my neighbor’s yard.
So as I’m stretching on my foam roller
(hot tip on that if you continue reading)
There was something interesting that came to
Mind about the path to success and getting
What you want when you want.
Life’s all about your ability to sometimes
Experience pain without flinching.
You see stretching is sometimes sooo painful
Like I’ll avoid it sometimes, even though I know
With every fiber of my being that it’s good for me.
You can probably see where I’m going with this.
Stretching is painful, but so are mistakes sometimes
You see, growth is normally experienced through
One or two mistakes that cause us pain.
Because we don’t want to experience that pain again
You simply find a way to either avoid (not foam roll)
Or cope (take pain meds)
Neither of those solutions actually tackles the issue
But what’s most important here is what we find when
Growth is necessary in life.
It’s through pain that we find our release and that
Release ultimately leads to more freedom.
Whether it be with greater range of motion or
An emotional release from an issue that’s been
On your mind for some time.
Your freedom depends on your ability to grow
Despite how uncomfortable it always will seem

P.S. About that foam rolling tip.
Foam rolling is remarkably like tenderizing meat.
No, comment…ne hoo one thing you want to consider
Is the direction your rolling. You never want to roll
With the muscle fiber only perpendicular. For instance
If you want to roll your back, don’t go side to side, go up
And down. Use this info wisely. Talk soon…
