Thoughts...

What’s worse than a giraffe with a sore throat?

an Alligator with Tooth Troubles…

an Elephant with a Stuffed Nose…

a Turtle with Claustrophobia…

a Centipede with Foot Odour…

 

This week I am dealing with dental pain. (as I await my dental appointment)

Instead of being at Ki Health and Wellness I’m at home. I’m taking pain meds, not operating any heavy machinery, resting when appropriate, puddling with paperwork when I’ve got the clarity for it … and I’m feeling schtuff about all of it…

We live with expectations.

Most of our expectations are so small that we don’t even realize that we expect things to roll out in a certain way. Until they don’t… and then we feel “Schtuff”.

Like the expectation that you’ll be at your desk at your usual hour.

When something as small as a broken tooth hijacks your routine, your expectations begin to fall like dominos: without time at your desk you’ll get behind on that project you were committed to… and that will mean a delay in A, B or C… and you begin to feel anxious… or annoyed… or both… and you Certainly have opinions about being in pain. This is grief.

“Grief is the Conflict of emotions that happens when an established pattern changes”

When life takes a left turn, we grieve.

Your pain doesn’t have to be greater than mine, in order to deserve your full attention. 

When we admit what we’re feeling, at least to ourselves, life gets a little bit easier. When we attend to what hurts, it heals.

If you want to know more, contact me next week… after my tooth gets fixed and I’m back at Ki. xoxo
