Can I take this green thing with me?
Filled up my Tuesday with a brow wax, hair color and cut, and my annual massage thanks to dear old Dad. It was nice to take a time out and invest in a little "me" time while being blessed by all the people I chatted with along the way. So, here is the little bit that inspired this post today...
I think I'm about half-way done with my massage, and the therapist asks me, "Do you want me to fix your back?" FIX MY BACK?! What the heck is wrong with my back? I immediately start to think about what kind of chiropractic tricks she is about to unleash on me and I anxiously ask, "What do you mean?" She responds with a lovely, "Right the wrongs." I internally laugh and say, "Fix me up!"
The next 30 minutes, she spends gently working and tapping along my back. It was so simple, liberating, and not crazy or scary at all. And without her noticing, I smiled.
Right the wrongs. Isn't it crazy how simple this can be? We don't have to wait for the New Year to make new resolutions, new goals, or mend the things that need change in our lives. It doesn't have to be the first of the month or a Monday. How about a Tuesday? It doesn't have to take a certain amount of time. Just make the time and everything else will fall into place.
Your wrongs might be complex. They may take the form of bad habits or mistakes. Maybe someone won't forgive you for that wrong. Whatever it is, take care of YOU right now. Be proactive in being the best version of yourself by just making a decision. Simple, but yet not easy...I know. Decide to change and you will see the fruit of the choices you make. Keep it simple. Baby steps are better than no steps and let everything else go. Forgive yourself, love yourself, and continuously take care of yourself.
Each day you will get better and be better for it. It's not SCARY or CRAZY...although some people might think you are crazy. Let them talk while you lead by ACTION. The fear will go away when you overcome the noise in your head....and that is liberating.
Before I left, she said, "Do more planks." And I gratefully smiled, thanked her for her magic and walked out a little taller even with the imprint of a horseshoe on my forehead.
