Interesting question isn’t it? 

It’s one that I’ve definitely been able to answer yes to many times in my life.

In fact just yesterday (when I recorded this), my hubby Chris and a friend of ours, also called Chris, hiked from Pakari Beach to our house.

Now whilst it’s only 14 km or so, I definitely found carrying a 12kg pack over this undulating, gnarly terrain challenging. Plus it’s very muddy and littered with tree roots that can easily trip us up if we’re not constantly vigilant.

I certainly can feel it today! Whilst I absolutely relished every moment, I know that I really pushed myself.

Michelle , a delightful lady I’ve had the privilege of working with 1, is like many of us. We can get into a seemingly self-perpetuating pattern of pushing-on, especially when we’re dealing with pain, discomfort, confusion, worry, or fatigue.

I invite you to be asking yourself, whilst you’re reading now, if you can relate?

Are any of the areas Michelle talks about familiar for you too?

 It’s worth investing the 2mins to read her story to find out what she’s decided to do about the challenges she’s found herself facing. Her particular challenge has been multifactorial including spinal stenosis, and it’s inspiring to witness her journey.

I look forward to connecting with you on this week’s #ALivewithFi, and until then have a goodie 🙂
