It’s been a month (almost)

I love a good gratitude practice.  I mean I practice it daily but If you ever want a lesson in gratitude….have surgery.  Seriously, I don’t wish it on anyone but somedays there’s a lesson to learn.

It’s very bizarre that one day you suffer mightily to do something and a few days later, magically you can do it.  I guess it must be like being a kid again.

This weeks prime example is:  Thursday night I stood to teach an hour yoga class (great class, not so fun for me).  After class, I stopped and got a whopping 3 things st a grocery store and drove home nearly in tears.  Saturday I taught an aromatherapy workshop (seated) but then did a full shop, stood in the longest checkout line ever, drive home even further, and had do 3 trips up and down stairs to bring everything in (I can’t carry a lot yet) then put it all away…and then had to get an ice pack.

A few days ago loading the dishwasher almost did me in.  Tonight I cleaned the kitchen, loaded the dishwasher, and even swiffered before sitting.

Not only is this all a lesson in gratitude, but pushing limits mentally (and some physically).  I guess the old quote “if you think you can do something you can, if you don’t think you can do something, you can’t.  Either way you’re right….” has been right all along!
