I was a very good girl yesterday. I babied my back. Used alternating ice and heat. Did not try to overstretch. And I went straight to bed after my bowl of Pho. I've been binge watching "Empire" at the suggestion of my friend H. I am hooked on the characters. And I found myself inspired by the music.
I stayed in bed this morning. Did not try to get up and go to church. I think God understands. I needed time alone. Sometimes I need some humbling. Like a back injury. I need to be reminded that time is precious. Never to take anything or anyone for granted.
I finally got vertical about 10:00 a.m. And I immediately went to my piano. It has been many moons since I have been motivated to play. And I wrote a small composition. It is an interlude for a piece the choir I accompany is singing in December.
It just flowed out of me. I recorded and sent it to the director.
I feel like I have my groove back! I am feeling peaceful and balanced.
Well, my back is still a bit sore. But amazingly, I can walk almost normally today. It's just sitting that is tricky.
I am at my library office right now. Heading to do very light cardio and a long hot tub soak at the gym afterwards.
My friend H has suggested gently that I tend to overthink things. So I was thinking about the last night. Lol. And I came up with the conclusion that I sometimes do need to hit the pause button in my life and contemplate. I prefer to call it "thinking over" rather than overthinking. :)
But I think what he was saying is that by hesitating and thinking rather than just being and doing, we can miss out on opportunities in life.
I just read a great quote online by Mike Tyson: ''Everyone's got a plan until someone punches them in the face." I like that.
Or until your back goes out.
There is a balance here somewhere.
I intend to find it!
But first, the hot tub!
Happy Sunday! :)
