This week has been a tough pain-week for me. A few good days, but a lot of bad ones. So here I sit, having cancelled my plans for this weekend, wallowing in my self-pity. Trying to find the good in it.
The good? Knowing I cancelled plans and will honor my body. Rest is a necessity, especially in times like these. Acknowledging this helps my little pity-party dissipate a bit.
Today’s quote is by a man most of you don’t know. I work with him in the Forest Fire Lookout Towers, and he is my partner for this Saturday, whom I just cancelled on. This was his response to my needing to cancel due to my ongoing Endo pain and medications:
“Okay, charge your batteries.” ~Ramon
Something so simple, so perfect, so right on point; it lifted my spirits immediately. Ramon gets it. Sometimes you just need to stop what you’re doing and rest. And charge your batteries. ❤
I hope you’re able to find rest and shelter when you need it. And relax, or try to. Honor your body when you need to. Sleep. Rest. Do nothing. And be okay with doing nothing.
Have a great weekend! ~Lisa
