Nothing Lasts Forever


It has been three weeks now since I injured my shoulder.  Whilst it is much better, in that I have pretty much full range back; it is still painful. I  I have resigned myself to get an MRI scan to determine what exactly, if anything, is damaged.

So, whilst attempting to still teach my classes; albeit with lots of modification, I’ve been doing lots of reading, and resting.

What I have learnt from the past few weeks is that we don’t even need to look for the silver lining in every dark cloud.  Most of the time, it is there, staring us in the face.  The only thing is, we tend to get so hung up with what is wrong, with what is bad or sad about a situation, and we become oblivious to the positive in the situation.

There really cannot be a negative without a positive; the whole yin yang concept.  One cannot exist without the other.  In any given negative situation, there is a positive, a silver lining.  It may not be what we would like, and yet, when we look back to times in our lives when shit has hit the fan, we can see how it was a blessing in disguise.

Likewise,could it be that if we suppress our negative emotions and dial up our positive emotions, we tend to find that the suppression of these negative emotions could have an effect on our physical body and wellness?

I do honestly feel that the universe has been attempting to tell me something for awhile; and most likely something that I don’t want to hear, or accept, or confront just yet.  And so, I plough on till the universe decides, enough is enough, and shoves me over!  If that isn’t a wake up call, nothing is!

What do I have to wake up to?? I’m still unsure.

I do know that the key lesson is that nothing lasts forever, and I do have work on diversifying my income because everything that I currently do to earn an income relies on me.  I physically have to do the work in order to get paid.  If I am sick, or injured, then my income is affected.

Does the wake up call also mean that I have to revisit my life and prioritise certain things over others?

Quite possibly.

Am I ready to honestly to that?

Not yet.

One day …

In a world that moving at a tremendous pace, some of us are striving to peel back the layers and be in the moment. I believe that we are here to share, to grow, to evolve and to leave the world a better place than that we were born into. Whilst we are busy being diverse human beings, we can still remain humans being, and more importantly, that we live our kind of lives.
