One of Those days

Today has been one of those days…. Something caught up with me and my body went on strike. I knew I had been overextending but had very real plans to escape the consequences.

Why is it that the moment we feel over-tired, stressed or ill our worlds turn upside down and it seems there is some nebulous unidentifiable thing that bites our world to pieces? A promised shipment doesn’t arrive, someone is late for their appointment, repair parts aren’t available for several days, you receive the wrong item, phone line cuts out in the midst of an important conversation ….

At other times we might take these things in stride but today I found myself ready to crawl into a corner and let this “nebulous indefinable thing” take over.

I think for some of us "A" type personalitys us getting sick during a crisis is a reminder to take it slower. Not that I remember that when it happens to me. It drives me crazy to want to do a million things and have to slow down and rest anyway!

You have my sympathy I hate being forced to slow down when I have other plans, how is it that as soon as I think it couldn't get worse sure enough it does?

I love your drawing.

The very best thing to do-- indulge in pure nurturance--- let go, let be. Rest deeply.

Hmm, you gave in and didn't post today. Come on out and play now. I remember some kid song about sliding down my cellar door. Do you remember that? Hope you were feeling peppier today.

I don't know that I want more of these reminders.

I hate having to give up plans when they are really good ones
