As much as I’d like to be up and running on full power, like, yesterday, that isn’t an option.
Doing as little as possible still is the way forward. The way backward involves doing too much and sliding back into the world of joints that don’t work and a battery that is so flat, watching dust and hair swirl around in the sun, cheek pressed flat to the floor is the only thing possible.
I know it feels like you have to do everything.
Maybe you do. But most of the time you don’t. You can ask for help. Actually you need to ask for help. That is the big thing. Stop feeling embarrassed that everyone is running around after you. Enjoy it! And along with that, the greatest thing you can do to recover quicker is stopping the fight against a timetable that is far bigger than you.
There are far bigger chefs than you at work, and it would appear they need you to marinate for a little longer.
You can fight and struggle and exhaust yourself, prolonging illness further and further down the track. Or you can surrender and give up to the reality. Give up your ideas of what should happen and when.
Ironically it’s then, when you fully and unconditionally surrender, healing can start to happen.
If it will at all, that is, and in it's own good time. Anything else just gets in the way.
It’s a super hero transformation after all! If you recover well, you’ll come out the other side with mutant super powers. And that will be awesome.
That’s me - hope you’re having a lovely weekend.
