combination of that fact that I am meticulous and organized, along with the
fact that I had a limited amount of time to organize made this experience
One of the hardest things for people to accept is injury.
I’m not talking about our ability to become injured, that’s easy. Plenty of
people do this without even trying! Rather, I’m speaking of our ability to
accept that our body has changed, it won’t change back overnight, it will take
hard work to get back to an uninjured state, and, most importantly, we need torestthe injured area.

I take it all back.
Beach volleyball is
