This too shall pass

Thursday, February 18, 2016

Just thinking about my current recovery status. This recovery is more of a struggle than I had expected. I have always been a quick study in recovery. Just couldn't understand what hampered me this time.

Watching TV today, in the presence of my wife, I saw a commercial of an open heart surgery. My exact words, "my God, that's what happened to me. My entire insides were uncovered." Blew my mind. Never visualized the seriousness of my triple by-pass surgery. To me, it was just a walk in the park.

Now, I understand why I must be patient and listen closely to my body's messages. This struggle will be seen in my rear view as a poof of smoke, I needed this image to broaden my peace and calm as I move forward.

    Fitmary, you are absolutely correct. Perception is key. We can work on the challenges we have now, and those that pervade us tomorrow, just by remembering that strife and attacks only last for a short time. In time we'll look back and wonder how we got over.

    Sometimes we "just don't get it" at first. That is exactly what happened to me when I contracted a serious case of Bell's palsy. I kept asking "what is wrong with me?" And my husband kept having to explain: "You're sick." Wow, what a slow learner I was!
    But, yes, finally understanding brought patience and that helps recovery.
    All the best as you move forward!
