Even This, Too, Shall Pass

Sunday, November 22, 2020

No matter what you are going through right now, what I do know is that IT WILL PASS...

I’m recovering from a fall that injured my back and totally derailed my daily life and exercise routine. It is difficult for me to remember at times that this is a temporary situation as I recover and I just need to be patient while my body heals and continue to take life one day at a time.

I have had a lot of time for thinking and reflecting. Since I’ve been out of commission and unable to fully participate in our Fall 5% Challenge that will be ending this week, I wanted to leave some thoughts with you.

Life does not stand still - life goes on.

Every part of our life journey is beautiful. There are joys and heartaches, ups & downs, lessons and celebrations, highs and lows, successes and failures, happy and sad, moving forward 1 step and going back 2 steps, and all are a part of our life. It’s easy to enjoy and savor the happy times. But, we also need to face the negative, unwanted experiences so we can learn from them, change what we can, and move on so we can experience the joys of life.

I love SparkPeople, SparkFriends, and all the teams and challenges for the motivation, encouragement, and inspiration that have helped me reach my goals. I plan to continue with Spark and do everything I can to get back to my normal routine just as soon as I can. This injury is just an “inconvenient set back”. Brighter days are ahead!

Always remember “Even this, too, shall pass.”
