When I was younger, I coined the phrase:
“If you ain’t living on the edge, you’ve got too much room!”
Now that I have matured a bit, I prefer a little more cushion or “wiggle room,” if you will.
But that being said, if I don’t stretch myself from time to time, I become inelastic… if that’s a word (my spellcheck didn’t put any wavy lines under it, so I am going with it being an actual word). When I’m inelastic, I become set in my ways, and rigor-mortis takes hold over the different aspects of my life.
The other day I was talking with an occupational therapist and inquiring about what they do exactly. The best I could gather, they help people stretch an injured (and then repaired) part of their body to build up strength in it again and make it more usable — the way it was created to be.
