Yoga

So, I tried yoga today for the first time! Yes, for the first time! The reasons I haven’t tried yoga before are mostly due to fear that it’d hurt more than it’d help, but it was actually fun! I should have tried years ago! It goes onto a list of things that I should have tried years before I did, but put off for various reasons (stubbornness, fear, laziness, being the top 3). Here’s the beginning of my list:

  • Nutella (seriously, that stuff is amazing)
  • Essential Oils (you can read about how much I love them here)
  • Yoga
  • Game of Thrones (how did I not watch/read it earlier than this year!?)
  • Experiencing God (it’s a Bible Study, it’s awesome)

But anyway, back to the yoga. Some of those moves should have different names, in my opinion. “beached whale”  and “stuck, please help” comes to mind—at least in my case, but I can’t be the only one. Please, tell me I’m not the only one. The girl in the instruction video is so smooth and balanced and I’m in my living room wiggling and wavering and barely staying vertical while she just flows from one move to the other. It’s ridiculous how bad I am at it, but I have only just started, so I think it will take some time to get better. And to get in better shape.

Dating

It’s Valentine’s Day and once again I am single. That’s ok with me, though. I just got out of a relationship and I don’t really want to be in a relationship right now.

But.

Dating is hard for Spoonies. Really hard. Meeting people is hard for anyone, but for spoonies it’s exceptionally hard because we leave the house so seldom. Then there is the dating itself, which is exhausting. That is all assuming you can find a person who doesn’t think that you’re a lazy, unattractive freak. I mean, we all know how hard it is to shower on a daily basis. Putting on makeup is a monumental task at times. Then there is the actual “out” part of going out. I barely go out as it is. Having to go out to dinner or lunch and sit straight and pretend I’m fine while using my brain to make lively conversation? That’s asking a lot.

But dating isn’t impossible for Spoonies. It might feel like it at times, but it’s actually pretty possible. With the right attitude and the right partner, anything is possible. So today, as you feel sad and alone, just remember, things are not hopeless. I’m rooting for you.
