How I Learned to Move as Young as I Feel Inside By Ras Adiba Radzi
I always tell myself that the impossible is nothing when you have the drive to keep moving in life. Being a survivor, I do not let my physical condition limit me. I keep my spirit of moving young alive by making sure I get up, dress up, and show up, as I always have.
And here’s how I do it.
Being a Muslim is a very big part of my identity. And the fulfilment I’ve been blessed with translates into every decision and action I make. My faith keeps me going strong to conquer my dreams.
2. Enjoying the moment
Wherever I go in life, the destination is important – but the journey even more so. Taking the time to stop and smell the flowers keeps me young at heart and mind, which in turn allows me to move as young as I feel inside.
I feel ageless when I am with my loved ones. The whole-hearted support of my partner, children, family and friends has given me a kind of strength that is liberating, and I feel that nothing is impossible for me to achieve.
4. Proper nutrition
As much as I feel young inside, my physical body still needs to be taken care of. My body is my vessel on this earth, and I need to preserve my movement with Anlene so I can have the freedom to do the things I love, with the people I love.
5. Being thankful
Despite the challenges I've faced throughout my life, the Almighty has also blessed me with miracles that have kept me humbled and grateful. They renew my motivation and sense of purpose, and that helps keep me moving.
