Mental, Physical, and Spiritual Shape


Early yesterday morning I returned to a positive daily routine

Early yesterday morning, I returned to the positive routine that used to be like a religion when I was first attacked by cancer over a year ago. The doctors put me on an exercise routine that mainly consisted of walking a few miles daily. It was therapeutic on so many levels.

I was very concerned with living through each night and waking up the next morning. Walking took my mind off of worrying about dying and helped me celebrate life. Once the general fear of dying nightly left I started becoming a little complacent. Soon I stopped my routine.

When I was on the road with Seal a few months ago, he worked out all the time. He'd said that he wanted to be able to perform at that level for as long as possible.

When it comes to performing, I'll always give 100 percent. I've always relied on will-power, love of music, and my commitment to hard work. I don't feel any different when I'm running and jumping up and down on stage as I did at 17 years old. But I'm smart enough to know that I need to get back into shape.

Life is hard, but it's also beautiful and I want the quality of my life to stay as beautiful as possible. I'm going to redouble my efforts to get back to tip top Mental, Physical, and Spiritual Shape.

 


I own a treadmill so I can walk everyday regardless of weather - There's no excuse for me to not workout

This is me playing The Bitter End a few weeks ago, BUT I ALSO played here when I was 17 years old!


Life is hard, but it's also beautiful and today in my backyard was beautiful
