Be like a bird! Sing your day! Sing it outward, sing it in your heart! Sing it in your inner spirit, your creativity. Embrace it because this is what you have. Today! Make the best of it, Enjoy it and let its joys uplift your heart. Look at the bright side, and let the shadows fall and fade away.

I just got back from physical therapy. I am tired. I did my yoga style cat, camel, sleeping child, other core and back stretches, and about 10 minutes on the recumbent bike (Newstep) before the Dr of Physical Therapy started helping me with my BPPV again. That is Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. That is dizziness usually when I lay down, or look up. After Friday's session, that evening I got very dizzy. Still dizzy. He worked on it some more, still pretty dizzy. Not so bad I couldn't drive home, I got home safely.
And he worked my upper/mid back. Here's hoping I get some relief.
I also finished my antibiotic, and got the bloodwork back regarding the tick bite. I was told it was normal, but I was also told it could have been a false negative. Anyway, I know that the antibiotic cleared my ears up, and I still think it was best to do, as the spot where the tick got me is still there.

Now it's on to work, which I will do as soon as I finish this blog, and get to it.

No matter what it's doing outside, let the Sonshine in your heart.

This is a new week, a new day. A time for me to throw away all the bad habits you (I) slid back into over the weekend. Sometimes pain does that to me. I look for some kind of relief from something I put in my mouth. The first relief was from a small glass of milk, Then I did sleep for a few hours, then woke up in pain again. It's not like I ate a candy bar, but I did back slide, and now that is behind me, it probably shouldn't happen too much. It is rare.

New day, new dawn, new beginnings happen each new day.
Tonight I hope I sleep better. That I have better pain relief.
Getting healthier is my job, one day at a time.
Have a good week, you deserve to make it happen, and put the weekend behind you.

We also saw two deer in our front yard the other night, they triggered the motion sensored light. Then, I saw them when I was driving home from the grocery store yesterday: A mama and her fawn, who looks to be nearing adulthood, as it was nearly as big as the mama.

    Lovely blog post. Maybe the deer are a reminder to be gentle with yourself? Some "sliding" is a natural part of this journey. Seems like gently acknowledging it without guilt and recommiting to the path is a good response, no?
