“Mens sana in corpore sano.”
How often have you heard this Latin motto?
Me, millions of time.
But it never sounds more accurate as in mornings like this, when I wake up with a massive headache.
Trying to keep my mind on even the smallest thought is a challenge, let alone doing my morning writing ritual.
However, I wanted to give it a shot even if I know that the results won’t probably be listed among my best pieces.
One of the reasons I’m writing despite this morning pain is that, to me, that Latin motto works both ways. Indeed, when I’m healthy and fit, my mind thinks clearly and works definitely better. But when my mind is engaged, it’s as if signals are sent to my body saying “come on, wake up, here’s the key to some more energy“.
Right now, word after word, the tension on my neck is releasing, and I start feeling a little better.
The second reason is that I don’t want to miss the opportunity to cast a vote for the person I want to be.
