Hello out there in blogisphere!!
I have been quiet lately, not so much because I’m quiet but my brain just doesn’t seem to be working as well as it has. I’m fuzzy. Writing is difficult because I’m not feeling the bang of an idea and the jazzed up feeling about posting. It began last week with the migraine which knocked me on my butt. This was the mother of all headaches, but it’s lifted. I’m now back to the normal pressure in my head and low grade migraine I’m used to in the last year. But I’m feeling detached, not creative, totally numb.
This too shall pass.
I know it will, it has before so I’ll be patient and take each day at a time.
I gave in on Friday and went to my Doctor in tears, it was hubby’s birthday and the pain was overwhelming after so many days without relief and it felt like my Spirit just couldn’t carry me anymore. I felt like an utter failure. I prayed on it in the morning and felt the need to call my Doctor (who never has appointments open) and voila she had one that afternoon. I went to my AMAZING girlfriends house with my youngest and she watched the little one. My Doctor was great, I felt sane after visiting and we are trying some medications to relieve the pain.
Yesterday at a meeting someone I really respect said that during his early years in the program he would take a slogan and adopt it for a month. He would apply it to everything and was amazed at what he learned, how his perspective shifted.
I am applying “This too shall pass” to my health, going to believe that with prayer and work I CAN recover.
And today is the beginning of Lent, rather than giving something up I am performing one random act of kindness for someone for 40 days. I want to see how it feels for me and the other person (if they share it).
I challenge you all to do this too.
