Today is the day after the day after! If you don’t get it, go check out my last post!
Sometimes this day can be harder than the day before, especially if you have something you need to do. You see, you rested all day yesterday and your body started to recuperate and got really comfortable (as comfortable as someone who is always in pain and exhausted could be.) Today you had to force yourself to get up and start your normal regimen so you can have some consistency and order to this crazy life.
Here is how my day started:
1. I opened my eyes and told the Lord thank you for waking me in my right mind and asked him to take away the pain so I could at least sit up.
2. After 20min, I sat up, only to realize my hands, feet and legs were numb so I began to rotate them to get some feeling.
3. Once I got some feeling, I had to bend my legs back and forth and do my Exercises per my normal routine.
4. Then I could finally go get in the shower.
The list goes on….
Reality is, it takes all we have and who knows how many spoons to just get up and ready on a regular day, but after an event, it’s even harder.
I’m not telling you this for your sympathy. I truly want you to understand us and our bodies.
If you have a better understanding then you will be able to treat us accordingly, cut us some slack, put on some extra patience, love on us a little more and celebrate that we got up!!! That’s a victory and a half!!!💜💜💜
Hours later, I’m up and out of the house. I will sing at a funeral and then rest again, but y’all through all of the aches, pain, swelling, fever, dizziness, nausea and exhaustion, I GOT UP and I LOOK GOOD if I have to say so myself!!!💁🏽♀️
Have a blessed day!!!🥰🥰🥰
