I hurt my back a few weeks ago and have not been able to exercise or leap around the room while telling jokes (which for me, is in some ways, far more debilitating). A few times now, I’ve started to feel really down about this. You know when you get in that mode of feeling like crap and it’s awfully hard to convince yourself that you will ever be a person worth knowing again? Yep, that’s been me lately.
Just today I started to go there and I thought, ‘You know what?! What is something that gives you the healthy feeling of working out and the positive vibes of being your usual silly self?”
Going outside and being in the sunshine!
Even if I can’t be super physical, just getting in the sunshine and fresh air and getting away from the computer-iPhone brain, makes me feel instantly better!
It’s pretty hard to be mad at the beach and the idea of picking up a little wine and bread and good cheese afterwards to enjoy on the warm, post beach, sandy toes, summer breeze, front patio just makes life that much better…
So here is to making the best of every situation and staying grateful for what we’ve got! Life is so short, I wonder what the endless possibilities are to remember to savor it, “back pains” and all? What keeps you guys feeling good when you get stuck? I’d love to hear about it
