Patience to Heal - Patience to Grow

Friday, June 15, 2012

Being stiff puts you at risk for injury. So when it happens, you can either stop completely, or modify and work around. I chose to do the work around, and also to take more time to find out how to avoid the conditions that set up the injury.

There is an expression: "Make haste slowly". It seems that you need to balance the goal with the way to achieve it. Recognizing where the body is, at the present moment, is a constant work in progress. Emotions of pride, seeking approval, conformity have warped my present perceptions of body comfort. An injury stops you short, and emphasizes that one must be the gatekeeper of any thoughts that influence you.

This is a period of growth; lessons to be learned; understanding that activity can still take place in a meaningful path. emoticon
