Tylenol is not a long term solution :(

“There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy.”

~ Frederich Nietzsche~

It is a challenge to live with intention and not out of habit. It requires that I look at my situation, my body and my health and rather than dismiss their rumblings, take a deep breath, sit still and listen.  Only then can I see clearly what I must do next to heal. It helps to learn from others who have lived through similar injuries. But, when this is not possible or their solutions do not work for me, it is essential that I drown out my mind’s deeply ingrained habitual messages.  Instead I must set out to intentionally create new ways of living that will support my well being and enable me to thrive, regardless of how far this veers from what ‘has always worked in the past.’  Surviving and pushing through despite the pain is not the better option. Change, the more challenging choice, is. I almost added the word ‘unfortunately’ to that last sentence. But, this would be incorrect. I know I am fortunate to be able to make the choice to heed my body’s wisdom.

I work to remember Tylenol is not a long term solution.
