Being forced to slow down and look at life from sitting in our comfy living room chair is definitely an adjustment. I am so used to doing this and that, putting in a load of laundry, fixing a meal, watering my plants, taking the kid to a play date, doing the household shopping, taking the kid to his tutor, and lots more. But I am taking the Universe’s message to me to slow down to a full stop, quite seriously.
Especially after a few days ago when I was maneuvering my knee scooter up one step onto our side porch so I could come back into our house. I got the front part of the scooter up the step and promptly lost my balance, going over backwards. My instincts took over and I put my injured foot out to stop my fall. A moment later, I realized what I was doing and pulled my foot up, followed by hitting the ground, scraping my good leg and slicing my wrist on some gravel.
I lay there, in pain, waiting for some of it to pass, so I could begin to think about how to get up. I also thought about how much is truly sucks to be hurt and to get hurt more. My wonderful husband helped me get back up and into the house, where I retreated to our comfy living room chair. He cleaned up my new cuts and bandaged my wrist.
Since this fall, my foot, more specifically the torn tendon in it, has been miserable. Miserable to the point of my needing to take narcotics to quell the pain. This sucks because things had finally calmed down enough that I was only taking some ibuprofen twice a day to be comfortable. One fall down, one big step backwards.
When I shared this latest fall with my wise psychic friend, Jeanie, as much as a person can using a text message, she slapped me and told me to sit my ass down in a chair and stay there! Ok! Ok! I get it!! She explained that over the past few months, I have done a lot of work energetically healing a lot of crap from my childhood. And now I need to stop and rest so the healing energies can do their thing on me.
So here I sit, with my electronics, my scooter, and some water. Sitting, watching some TV, napping, sitting, having a meal, sitting, getting bored, sitting, waiting for surgery, sitting…
