On Wednesday night, Bella and I headed to the city to see Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. What an inspiring story! We both loved it.
On Thursday, I had surgery again to remove the scar tissue in my elbow. I basked in the glow of pain killers.
When you are forced to be still, all you can really do, is think.
Mind you, this is while watching endless hours of HGTV. So, think, and plan, and brainstorm I did.
I organized the Magic Basement. I did many loads of laundry. I plotted out classes I want to teach. I dreamed up what I wanted to see at the next retreats. I imagined a three day retreat. I cleaned up the website.
Being still allowed me to catch up with friends in a way I hadn't in a long time.
All in all, it was quiet, but highly productive time.
I reminded myself that even the tiniest of steps towards wellness - however I define wellness, is still a step.
- Eating oatmeal in the morning again is a step.
- Backing away from the pantry is a a step.
- Cleaning the Magic Basement was a big step.
- Organizing the Magic Basement was a step.
- Folding all the sheets and putting them away was a step.
Tiny transformations WILL lead to bigger ones.
Alanis Morissette AND Carole King together? Be still my heart.
Is that everything's gonna be fine fine fine
Cause I've got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving a high five
I feel the earth move under my feet
I feel the sky tumbling down
I feel my heart start to trembling
Whenever you're around
