Today isn’t a cheat day, but I will admit that I am somewhat hurriedly writing this from the tub, where I desperately need to soak.
Ongoing stress is continuing to wreck my body, but I’m doing my best to get the almost constant aches under control through massage, meditation, and warm soaks. Oh, and at least two Advil a day. Please, no one tell my liver.
I know that the tension and pain I am feeling is due to stress. I know that it is temporary. I’m trying to remember that when I feel the discomfort.
Everything is temporary. I can’t be uncomfortable forever because I can’t BE HERE forever. That’s morbid, but thinking that way does put the stressors and the stress in perspective.
I am thankful because man, I am learning a lot. Every day, I learn something new it seems, and I am reminded of how little I know about anything at all, including myself.
To help me along on this journey of self discovery, the Universe sent me an angel, in the form of a friend, who gave me a copy of Eckhart Tolle ‘s book, “A New Earth: Awakening Your Life’s Purpose.”
What are you reading? Has anything you read recently really changed your life?
Until tomorrow, my friends…
