Thankfulness for Rest
There’s nothing I want more in this world right now than to be able to jump up, get in the car, go run errands, meet friends, take kids to the gym to shoot hoops, and go out for a crazy night on the town.
You know. Like I used to.
But I am required to rest. And I need to start feeling thankful for it instead of having a whoa-is-me pity party about it.
Yeah, I had a friggin’ ginormous surgery, of which the pain and exhaustion has been unparalleled from anything I’ve experienced. It has pretty much sucked.
I am intentionally having to be thankful right now for the fact that I am forced to lay down when I’d rather not. I believe this is my typical “grass is always greener” thinking.
‘Cuz this rest is causing my body to heal so I can be ready to work for a couple of weeks before my next big surgery. It is also something that I know I’m going to wish I had more of later. My over-extending myself response to most things makes me wish I had time to rest.
And… it’s been fun catching up on things like The Walking Dead, Downton Abbey, writing, chatting with friends, sleeping, etc.
Most people would die for more rest. Here it is being forced upon me and I’m complaining about it? Ugh. I am intentionally choosing to live in the moment and be thankful for it.
So, yeah. Thanks Universe for the rest. Sincerely.
Love, The Lazy-Ass Complainer.
