Is snow like marmite – love it or hate it? or can you be snow-neutral.
I used to be petrified any time snow was falling, I knew it’d end up with slippery icy paths and I’d take a tumble and with that risked putting my back out again – I experienced extreme anxiety shaking, palpitations, sometimes even felt like crying while walking. Extreme? possibly but the pain from my back is unimaginable.
A chance trawl of the internet a few years ago I came across Stabilicer Sport – LIBERATION! – yes I’d tried traction shoes before but still didn’t feel confident – not any more – these are amazing. Now I not only continue with things I have to do, but do so without stress. I feel so confident in the snow and ice that I’ll also just go out for a walk. I still don’t love the stuff, hate being cold, so maybe I have changed from snow hater to snow neutral.
Changing one little thing can change an entire life and with my new-found freedom I now meet news of snow and disruption differently…. well a bit differently I still watch EVERY forecast and news item just in case – don’t know if that’ll ever change.
Like most I have things planned for the next few days including travel to a meeting followed by coffee with a friend today but I’m lucky, as I mainly work locally AND I work for myself I can work from home when I need. I love being my own boss, and with modern technology I’ve been able to offer new clients their free consultation via Skype.
Now I say – BRING IT ON! I’m not quite a snow lover but definitely snow-neutral.
