Since being back in the Arctic Circle, I have had to work harder than ever before. The snow and ice makes walking so much more challenging, and so much more rewarding, all at the same time. It has been an adventure, to say the least, and one that is making me stronger and happier than ever before!
Walking in snow, when you are as challenged as I am, is like walking in sand. Every step is not only more difficult, but more challenging to my balance muscles so that I don't slip and fall.
On top of the added challenges outside my home, I live in a half-underground apartment which requires me to climb up and down six steps whenever I go in and out. That is just another obstacle that is making me stronger.
All in all, I am happy to be home, happy to be more challenged, and just happy in general!
