Still Crazy After All These Years
I celebrated a birthday recently. It wasn’t a “milestone” birthday or anything. I turned 39. Kind of a scary one knowing what is on the horizon. Quite frankly, I have been so busy this year pushing the envelope, that the day kind of came and went unnoticed and unremarkably. Which is fine. That is how birthdays go sometimes. But I like to think that despite all of the work I have put in these last 12 months, that people still stop and take notice that I may indeed be “Still Crazy After All These Years”.
Beat of My Own Drummer
For those of you following my journey at all, you will know that I have always been a little out there. I don’t necessarily think conventionally, and that has gotten me into some hot water at times. But I also think it has lead me to some absolutely wonderful creativity. Creativity is a resource I feel as though is relatively untapped in the field of Physical Therapy. PTs are some of the most creative people I know in finding new and inventive ways to adapt equipment, exercises, and daily activities to make them work for all shapes and sizes. Yet I feel like we could go bigger, and should go bigger.
ONE THING I LEARNED TODAY:
Each and every year can be drastically different. There will be highs and lows and ups and downs. But don’t beat yourself up over what you did and did not accomplish. Do everything you can to push your creative boundaries and just enjoy the ride. You may be considered a bit crazy, but thats ok too. I love this Paul Simon song. But this version happens to be by The Shadowbxers. If you enjoyed their version of this classic, click on that link and buy their album to support up and coming bands!
