bunt sign

Thursday, May 15, 2008

My plan had been to get through the day by taking frequent breaks, but once I got started, it seemed that the best course of action was to plow ahead and get as much done before I couldnít go on. I realized that, between the pain and the excessive heat, getting started again would be nearly impossible.

Sometimes I donít know exactly what to do to take care of myself, but I almost always know when not to do anything. Iím really good at that. Itís one reason my yard is so overgrown; I know when itís a bad day to do any mowing. If Iíd had any urgent outgoing mail today, I would have made my usual morning trek to the post office. I didnít, so I didnít.

This was not going to be a good day for working out anyway, what with it being 82įF at 7:00 am, and going up from there (103įF at 5:00 pm, according to my weather bug). Sometimes nature gives you such a broad hint that you canít help seeing it. This kind of clarity can save a lot of grief. If only Iíd listened to my body yesterday, before making things worse.

Lizards and squirrels share this stump in my yard.

But things were not worse today, thanks to the wonderful care I take of myself, and also thanks to the healing power of time. Time will make things either better or worse on its own, and sometimes itís best just to wait it out and see how it all shakes down. Iím not saying I canít feel the places that hurt, only that they donít hurt the way they did yesterday. Iím happy with this trend.
