Physically today was a slow, easy day.
I would look out the window and watch the cats chase bees or think of how I ought to go try to take some photos of the trees that are blooming, but I didn’t bother. Today was a day of recuperation from yesterday.
When I got up this morning, I felt as if I had hiked the mountain repeatedly. My body was sore and stiff and my head groggy. Even though I had slept all night last night. I knew I was dealing with the after effects of a stressful afternoon. Not being with friends, but the drive.
After writing this morning’s blog, I was able to realize a lot of what I had felt and come to a better understanding. I still had to deal with the physical exhaustion. So, today was a sit back, read, watch videos, and rest. It is freeing in a big way, coming to an understanding of self and things that drive us to act as we do. Being able to accept our own weaknesses and acknowledge that they exist, then we can face and overcome. As I read and realized I was also able to begin to think of the things I can do differently to make changes. Those can’t-won’t be made over night, but today was an amazing stepping stone toward that improvement.
Now, as the hour grows late, the things I have learned today, has made this slow, relaxing, learning day of rest, well worth it.
