Fang Talks

The question was "what will you not find on this blog?"

Something about not realizing what you have until you lose it.

It’s the strangest thing, there really isn’t a lot you consciously know about the things you do every day. It’s just talks you do, on autopilot, like a robot. Only when that flow is disrupted, do you notice the little things about it. You know, the kind of disruption like breaking an arm. Suddenly, autopilot won’t suffice anymore.

In your struggle to adjust, you realize how optimal your previous workflow was. You had it all figured out, perfected every little detail about it. But you can’t physically conform to your previous habits anymore. You have to figure it out all over again while keeping the new situation in mind.

It makes for a fun challenge though. you are forced to be consciously active about everything you do, and that awareness is oddly entertaining. With this we part off “mindfulness”? Who knows, I’m no expert.

Let’s see how long this lasts.

    While boxing a couple days ago I actually hit the bag too hard and at a slightly weird angle and gave myself a very small fracture in my capitate bone. I can’t pick things up with it, I can’t do push ups, I can’t even twist a door knob with it. So, you know, that’s my way of saying that I unwillingly joined your challenge. What do I win, aside from no autopilot?

    I’ve thought about that.

    I might have even mentioned it here before.

    I mean, if I suddenly couldn’t breathe well anymore, I’d wish I had appreciated my lungs when they worked right. Or if my hearing goes bad, I’d wish I’d listened to everything more closely while I could.

    This is not easy to remember as we go along, though.
