The body knew best
How and when to heal itself
Way before doctors...
Thanks Julia for the reminder that not every pain requires immediate medical attention. I am not anti western medicine and get an annual physical and vaccinations but unless there is a “twist” to your ankle story (yes terrible pun intended) I do believe the body is “healer number one”. And yes, as your precious family knows, cancer is real and modern medicine can help but for so many of our ailments we have lost the wisdom to know when to expect the body to “right the ship” or when to signal S.O.S. In today’s post industrial society all one needs to do is watch T.V. for 15 minutes and you might wonder how we survive one day without Big Pharma saving our lives. I am not saying become Vegan but I am saying it probably would help. Sorry for my early morning rant. Bottom line: when we forget we are walking miracles, we can easily lose sight of our North Star.
'Movement will help. Laughter will help. What I say to myself matters— this is temporary, see you can move your ankle with less discomfort. This pain is not permanent.'
Isn't this really the key to getting through anything in life?: Moving, laughing and being kind to yourself
Running in the morning under the light of the moon!!! Yeah, I know that’s not the main theme, but wow, you must get up early! Trying to fit so much into your day? I HAVE been for walks predawn and yes it was beautiful. It’s just that it’s spring here now and I was up early to walk a neighbour’s dog and it was a cool crisp sunny morning. A lovely walk. So the thought of running in moonlight in the morning threw me. Enjoy your day or night or whatever. Sending heaps of hugs and best wishes.
Beautiful. Julie, you deliver such hope, love and 'I can DO this' vibes in every one of your posts. Even when things are tough you find a way. Awesome and inspirational. Thank you. 😊
Btw, highly recommend Rich Roll’s latest podcast with Arthur C. Brooks. Enough wisdom there for all of us…🤗🙌🤗
Thanks Jules. Parents have so much to teach their children. Yours are lucky to have two fabulous parents. Never doubt your positive influence. Continue to use it wisely by showing up each and every day and doing the right thing even when it is terribly inconvenient. Convenience has its place but when it is the default mode we are all in trouble...
Wow you are so brave.
I can't even imagine running thru that kind of pain. I know I walk thru pain because I can limp! I know I need to walk and I love it like you love running. But running through pain? I could never do that. I really admire you. You don't let the devil stop you!
