On Sunday last weekend, I sprained both of my ankles. Yep, you read that right. I sprained both of my ankles. The pain was unbelievable. I spent most of the week crying and laying in bed. Being off my feet for so long has proven to be very difficult. With having so many responsibilities and a household to run, being off my feet has been extremely stressful.
I suppose I am having to learn how to trust other people to do the things I do, no matter how it’s being done. That is very hard. I am a bit of a control freak. When you have been doing things on your own, in your own way it’s difficult to allow other people to help. Especially when the said person you have to rely on makes you feel like they don’t really want to help.
As I am writing this it has been a week. 7 days since the fall. I am so over it. I just want to stand and walk but I cant. I don’t want to hurt myself more.
Anyway, I wanted to write this because I can’t believe how I have taken my feet and my ankles for granted. I just want to remind you all to be thankful for your bodies. Every part of your body takes such great care of you, keeps you walking, keeps you functioning. Be thankful, join me and be in the moment, be grateful for your body. It is a blessing.
Until next time,
