Does karma really correct things? I believe in most cases, yes and some no. That is why I don’t always rely on it to do the job. I see karma work and my mind says to trust it because you can relax and worry about what is important in life. Let go and move on I tell myself.
But sometimes I have trouble letting go. Especially when it’s personal. But I will try again for peace and let things fall as they do.
As I hear it said, life is to short to worry about the small stuff. And worrying about if others trying to get over is not a good investment of time.
So here is a beautiful start to a wonderful Wednesday. I’m up early because the body said wake up in a sudden manner this morning. As Jackie Gleason would say in Smokey and the Bandit – “That’s an attention-getter.” But instead of getting kicked in the ass, mine was a back spasm that left no doubt I was AWAKE AND UP. Well, up is a relative term if you call moving to the floor on all fours to catch your breath. It
Good thing that passed. I liken my back to let’s say the series of fault lines out in California. Lots of little quakes (pain/discomfort). Then some significant earthquakes that rock foundations and take a while to recover from. Stuff that takes your breath away and sometimes the eyes to water. Or sometimes the pain for hours till meds are used for relief. And we’re both waiting for the BIG ONE. Yeah, its almost just a matter of time or stresses we put on it for it to rupture.
One of my best friends is urging that I try a chiropractor before thinking about the surgery which is something the doctors have floated. But they have recommended against that idea of chiropractic treatments. I don’t want to do more damage or make it worse. I’m also not a fan of surgery and hospitals.
I haven’t done myself any favors if I’m honest with myself. I need to stretch and exercise more. I could lose 10 lbs. I need to sit for shorter periods but that is hard with the work I do and standing in one spot kills me. I’ve got to get back to work on strengthening the CORE.
Of course, some severe auto accidents and some hard physical work in my younger years have made that core less than solid. There are times where I can do days of physical work in a row and not have pain. I can lean over and pick up a towel and be brought to my knees and in pain for hours.
Some days I can walk for hours and feel great. Sometimes walking to the end of the driveway I wonder if I can make it back. Pain doesn’t make reservations, it shows up when it pleases.
And if I’m going to sit for long periods at work I need to use proper posture. I might have to revert to electric shock to take me out of decades of bad sitting habits. Like the photo above it has led to pounding holes in my spine.
But like I said, it’s a great Wednesday. And I will power through. I’m just glad to be as healthy as I am.
