I’m writing this from my hospital room — I’ll be here at least another day. While my surgery went very well, there were more extensive repairs done than anticipated, thus the switch to inpatient.
I’m incredibly sore and tender.
The staff here are all — without exception — professional and caring. I’m in very good hands and am grateful.
I feel like the pain is this giant mountain I have to climb to get where I want to go. All I need is the grit and persistence to do it.
Here’s my tribute to courage to keep me going.Zen Osho Commentary: This card shows a small wildflower that has met the challenge of the rocks and stones in its path to emerge into the light of day. Surrounded by an aura of bright golden light, it exposes the majesty of its tiny self. Unashamed, it is equal to the brightest sun.
When we are faced with a very difficult situation we have a choice: we can either be resentful, and try to find somebody or something to blame for the hardships, or we can face the challenge and grow.
The flower shows us the way, as its passion for life leads it out of the darkness and into the light. There is no point fighting against the challenges of life, or trying to avoid or deny them. They are there, and if the seed is to become the flower we must go through them. Be courageous enough to grow into the flower you are meant to be.
Blessings to All!
