Day 105

Another weekend another great wedding.

The standard of weddings I have been to recently is quite ridiculous. This time it was Charlie (mate from Wasps) and Hannah’s turn to submit their entry for wedding of the year and it didn’t disappoint. This one had a high concentration of rugby lads lads lads, which made for a rather raucous affair. The amazing @michael_g_moore on the piano had people dancing on the tables before the main course. Not me I might add, im not quite at table dancing yet but even so it was fun to watch.

The reassuring thing was that even though it has only been a week I noticed a significant difference in myself from the last wedding. I think there has been some functional improvements but mostly I would put it down to confidence… im just more experienced at wobbling around basically. Everyone is very happy to help and as the night wears on and soberness wears off some people start to develop mobility issues of their own. As a result getting to the toilet is made all the more exciting by having to navigate past pirouetting drunken rugby players who often decide that it’s time I learn to dance again, starting immediately.

It’s becoming more and more apparent that the quickest way forward is to push the limits, test yourself and try things. I have learnt over the last few months that confidence can be a huge limiting factor for people rehabbing. Trust me it’s scary constantly being on the verge of falling on your face but how can i expect to walk again without walking again, if you know what I mean.

Don’t get me wrong I’ve never been the biggest risk taker. It’s one thing having an idea or intending to make a change but actually pulling the trigger, that’s the real test. If the last few months have taught me anything it’s that if you want change, if you want to move forward in anything you do you can’t sit there and wait for it to happen. Push things forward, try things, take a chance, it might be scary but if you don’t you better get used to where you are because you’ll be staying there for a while. ✌️

P.s. Great to catch up with some of the Wasps boys. 🐝
