I came across this quote/ image on Pintrest recently and I absolutely love it. Talk about being simple, to the point, and still inspirational! I've tried searching to find the author or origin, but the quote is all over cyberspace without any author attributed. (If anyone knows, please let me know.)
Just keeping things short and simple today, like the quote. I think I got cramp in my rhomboid muscle tonight. Picture an overly dramatic footballer hitting the ground with cramp in his calf, switch it to the shoulder and factor in some major torn-repaired-drilled-post-surgical-pain-issues as well and that's getting close. I bit my pillow while Mum half-balanced, half-held a hot water bottle on my scapula until I stopped seeing black spots and sweating; and my ability to breathe and talk (and cry) returned; and then I thought..... my muscles are trying to work!!
Then it did it a couple more times and my attempt to be positive and excited kind of dissipated, beaten back by the ferocious pain; but it feels like, maybe, my muscles are waking up... hopefully my physio thinks this is good when I see him tomorrow. And then hopefully this phase will not last very long.
I don't believe life is really simple, but I do think we over-complicate it (as I am doing to this eloquent, simple quote!). Sometimes it's nice to have a reminder that it doesn't have to be complicated all the time; sometimes, we can just decide to do something - and we do it.
Happy Monday everyone!
Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.
