I have always said there is a piñata inside of me just waiting to come out. Little did I know it would show up as a shoe rather than a party game? I love color if you haven't already noticed.
Seven weeks ago I had surgery to have a bone fused and pins put in my big toe so that I could be relieved of the pressure and pain that comes with walking on bone on bone.
I am down for the count. I am now in a removable boot that comes off only at night. I have three more weeks to go and I will be back in my running shoes, both. Of course not to run yet, that will take time but I will be in my shoes. You should see the smile on my face as I even type this out.
On a more spiritual side. I have had this opportunity to refresh and reflect on some areas of my life that I had not been paying close attention to. This down time has brought me back to implementing an evening routine of reflecting and writing about my day. Ending without media and instead using the evening to pray and mediate and challenge myself to what worked and what didn't work for. This had been a habit I formed over a decade ago and just got out of the practice due to different life events.
I am amazed at how peaceful my spirit can feel when I choose to end my day without the noise of email, news or even a movie. It took me being down to prepare me to be back up to realize how much better off I am for myself and those around me when I take the time to refresh and reflect on my day on a daily basis. As a person who has struggled in my past with anxiety and depression this is a great tool that helps me keep my life in perspective.
What I do know is that life is like a sweat treat if I am patient and willing to wait, rest and reflect. Hope you are having an amazing Tuesday my blogging friends and that you find color in a your day.
