If you’ve ever been through a surgery and recovery process, you know what I mean when I say “one step forward, two steps back”.
Waking up: I feel amazing! I don’t even need any Tylenol or Motrin to start the day. I am getting out of this house today! Yes!!!
Shower and get ready: Geeeezzzzssss, I don’t remember shaving taking quite that much energy. I think I’ll lie down for a minute.
Prepare to leave house & do whatever I had planned: You can do this! You don’t have to stay long. Just come back home when you are ready to rest.
At the destination: Roaming aimlessly, unsure exactly why I’m there and what was so urgent. <Look at watch>. Well, I think it’s about time to go home & rest. 🤣
Next day: Rinse & repeat.
There you have the cycle of healing when you’re trying to balance a determined, optimistic brain with a body that just needs you to rest and heal.
Today, I will remind myself: 🎵One day at a time, sweet Jesus. 🎶.
Oh, and I’m NOT leaving the house…for today, anyway! 🙏🏻
Wishing you all a blessed and healing day that’s peaceful ahead. 🏝🏖
