A Once-In-A-LIfetime

As you may know, the swimming pool where I went was closed last Monday, so I had to pass it up.

I had to give my regular lessons all day long yesterday, so this morning, I finally went there to exercise! haha
At first, I started walking in the pool for 30 minutes. You might wonder if it would really work for my body. It's said, however, that walking in the pool is the best way for us, elderly people in particular, to keep exercising to lose weight and improve our bodies' condition without trouble.

While I was walking there, a woman, who seemed in her 60's, talked to me. Her appearence stroke me as a healthy and active woman. I was surprised to find out that she's actually 72 years old! Moreover, she had an operation a few years ago because of a serious heart disease.
We were chatting, walking in the pool. She used to be a company executive, so I learned a few tips to manage my time more efficiently and to enrich my life through our conversation.

Her attitude to her life gave an impetus to me. As one of four-character idioms goes, "A once-in-a-lifetime" or 一期一会 in Japanese.
