This is a reminder for me to approach each day gently, I don't always listening to the cues my body is sending and I end up hurting myself by not taking a moment to stretch, get up or switch activities for a bit.
For those of you who don't know me, I have lived with Fibromyalgia for 20 years. Fortunately it is not a degenerative disorder, unfortunately it causes a lot of muscle pain, fatigue and depression.
But really I'm fine, my head and heart are in a great place and that my friends makes all the difference!
On to an example of an un-gentle thing I've done, is taking up gardening again(late October), after 5 years without picking up a rake, shovel or hoe and digging, raking and weeding for, let's say, 3 hours?! I paid for that one for several weeks.
Speaking and treating myself and others more gently. I need to be nicer to myself, my family and friends. And thinking gentle, quiet, peaceful thoughts can only help us all work and live together.
