And other issues...
How often do you take the workings of your body for granted?
I suspect many of us take the things we are able to do for granted, such is
the focus on looking and feeling good in society.
As I prepared my newsletter, I reflected on last month during which I had
not one but three reminders to be ‘grateful’* for living largely pain free in
a body that doesn't need society to make reasonable adjustments -
especially as it, and many of us, are oblivious to what adjustments truly
need to be made.
The first was that my boy was in pain with a knee condition (he’ll be fine),
and secondly I had a sore leg and hip (I am fine).
Both may cause long-term niggles... O’s issue is manageable but not funny,
mine was avoidable-ish and had a tinge of the comedic about it.
Yes, folks, I took a cartoon style tumble into mud on a walk during A pause outdoors – TheKateOutdoors. Mud - 1. Ego - 0.
In my case, I am glad I can laugh about it and glad for the reminder to
appreciate the home I am/we are.
The third reminder however was a much bigger one, and will require
major adjustments for a loved one.
All I'll add is please don't ignore health warning signs, especially you men.
If, and when, your body talks folks... Please, listen.
