Behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes.
There is great truth behind this comment. Think about it….how many “great ideas” come before one is achieved? (eye roll) The answer is too many. Just do it. Stop over thinking it and just do it already! How hard can it be? ha. OH very hard apparently.
When we over think we are allowing our brain to over ride our natural ability to listen. We process until we process something to death. Now that is not very productive AT ALL. So why do we do it? Good question! Because we are control freaks. So, today is about listening to the whole thing not just one aspect but ALL aspects.
This week, I managed to throw my back out picking up a box. Yes it was as silly as it sounds.
I went to the chiropractor and a massage therapist. I feel 95% better. After last night, I have more mobility than I did and I feel like she really did a great job! Crunch, crunch, crunch…I was a regular hot mess. When I got home and relaxed–I felt so much better. I was drinking lots of water. I am a little sore, but it was well worth it. Icing has been helping.
While I was in the massage, she told me that she was trying to intuitively listen to where my body was pulling. So can I do that too? Sure I can! That isn’t hard…I mean sometimes it can be tricky…but anyone can listen. I decided that I was really going to make a conscious effort to listen better. Shut the pride and brain down and listen to what my heart and body were saying. Seek the listening first. Then adjust accordingly to seek balance. That is going to be my goal.
Maybe if I had just listened to my body say “that’s too heavy CatMan”…I wouldn’t be in such pain. The parts of the body are so intricate and everything hinges off each other. This being said, your heart, physical body, spirit, conscious mind, intellect, emotions, soul and over all energy have some “words to say about you”. If you want to feel your best? All you have to do is listen! When something is out of whack, it might scream at you until you do something about it. Simply stated, if I had listened to my body saying “no way!” I might not be in this mess. I would have saved approximately $167 and the pain of looking like a sissy. Nothing hurts the ego more than that.
Through all of this Nomad has been a peach. Very empathetic as he has back issues and knows it is a pain in the rear literally. These painful times are a good reminder to balance. Where there is an action, there is an equal cause or reaction…or something like that.
Well speaking of Nomad, he is doing some really great things. He is looking into going back to school. This is a very positive long time coming decision. I am really proud of him. It took him a decent amount of time to discern this whole thing and figure out what his best option was going to be and I think he is on the right track. Maybe not exactly to the program he needs, but he is getting there! I have been trying to encourage him, motivate him, and etc…but you know people move in their own time. (eye roll)
