Sitting Still

We’ve all heard it before – sometimes it’s better to just be still. For me that has taken on all new meaning. I had full range of mobility just half an hour ago and then I stretched my arms above my head and now it is EXTREMELY painful to move my head, neck, arms or take a deep breath. What I could have possibly done to myself I have no clue but I do know this, I can only sit in one place and that is perfectly still. It’s a hard thing to handle being sidelined especially if you get blindsided into it and you are a normally active person. Perhaps it’s my bodies way of saying hey you- slow down!!! If you won’t do it by choice you will do it by force. So here I am sitting on my couch watching preschool programming with an overly tired 2 year old wishing it didn’t cause shooting pain to move more than a quarter of an inch cuz I would really love to have another cup of coffee. Being still isn’t always a bad thing but sometimes it’s a pain in the butt. I am so conditioned to go, go, go, do, do, do to be still is hard for me to do so I guess I’ll play on my phone go into day 2 of social media overload and try to figure out what good can possibly come out of me being in pain and not being able to do anything. I’m praying that whatever this is just goes away after a nap. Hopefully I have better tidings to bring you tomorrow.
