A break today

Sunday, March 07, 2010

Today I'm taking a break. This may sound paradoxical since I haven't been working out. Despite my attempts to get better "fast" and to convince myself that I can do "just ten minutes," I haven't been able to do so much as march in place. So what am I taking a break from? How can I take a break if I haven't been doing anything?

Today I am officially taking a break from beating myself up. Every day that I wake up disappointed that I'm not better "yet," I do myself more harm than good. So I'm taking a break from that. A break from feeling guilty that my physical self has "let me down." A break from wanting to do what I can't. A break from expecting to will myself into feeling better. A break from trying to hurry things along. A break from feeling stress over all the things I'm not doing both at home and at work. A break from still trying to be the nurturer when I need to be nurtured. A break from feeling unhappy that things aren't going my way. A break from regret...

    Good idea to take a break from all of that, permanently!

    I am glad you are giving yourself a break. Do the break as long as you need to, let your body do the talking and tell you what you should be doing, until you get better, all "plans" are pretty futile.

    It's good to "take a break".
