As Good Tuesday Morning

Last Update: April 23, 2018

I'm excited right now, Sunday morning is a good day to write. It's just as good as Monday, Tuesday or any day of the week for that matter.

Writing normally comes naturally to me but ever since I sustained an injury to my right wrist, almost everything has just about come to a complete halt.

It has been difficult to do simple thing like scratch my head or comb my hair or almost everything that is done in the bathroom. Twist open water bottles, unlocking doors and twisting door knobs are other challenges I face on the road to recovery.

I only mentioned the tasks that I'm finding hard to to because I Don't want to include writing. Since I'm a writer, it just doesn't seem appropriate to include writing as a problem.

On days when my suffering is at its peak, (usually at night when temperatures drop a few degrees), I try not to leave the house unnecessarily for fear of re-injuring my wrist.

Nevertheless, writing is my only escape. I get to travel all over the world when I write. Like the photo says, " Travel is to make a journey or to have an adventure somewhere..." and I don't need to actually leave the house in order to take a trip.

I can simply, relax in the comfort of my home and travel to far off destinations and exotic locales just to have a "writers moment", (that moment when I know EXACTLY what I'm going to write.

That's when I don't feel any more pain. So, I decided to write more often and take periodic breaks to ease whatever stress that my wrist received during an average day.

I'm writing, today... Tomorrow and Tuesday... I know what I am writing about on these days. The rest of the days, I'll be on God's Good Graces. But for now, I'm taking today, and making it just as good as Tuesday. Because I don't know what tomorrow will bring.

I may wake up to a fully healed wrist. Then all of this pain will be a distant memory... something else to write about.

Long after I have recovered and remember this experience, I'll be taking it as a lesson, " ... when I walk my dog, that I actually HAVE TO HOLD the leash and not be lazy by resting the leash on my wrist while trying to warm my hands from the cold."

I know that when my wrist gets better, I will definitely be laughing at my childish behavior while suffering from this injury.

Hi Linda,
Pain is not childish.

But your way of handling it is outstanding.

Overcoming obstacles whether they be physical, mental, financial or a dozen other areas is a test for all of us.

Best wishes for a great week.
