Sometimes the body needs a rest
A moment to recoup and be cared for.
Illness sometimes is the only way
The body can get the brains attention,
Illness forces a person to slow down,
To stop for a while and take care.
While it can be frustrating, painful
Illness is really a body’s way
Of saying hey slow down a bit
You’re moving too fast,
Take it easy.
The body can be insistent
When we don’t listen
It will just keep getting louder.
Take that moment
Allow the body to heal and be heard.
Even while I’m laying in bed feeling crummy I find inspiration. Ever since I had Lyme disease a few years ago I have come to understand that when my body gets sick it’s usually a signal to me that I need to be taking better care of myself and that I need some time to rest. But it still stinks, and I still feel like crap but I’m resting and trying to take care of myself.
What do you think about when you’re sick?
