The funny thing we call life sometimes throws us a curve ball but in the end it turns out to be in our favor. With that being said today threw me for a loop. I woke up at 7:00 am with my head throbbing.It felt like someone had hit me in the head a couple of dozen times.
For anyone that knows me well, they know that I get migraines when it is going to storm. This is due to the barometric pressure. Today, I had no clue it was even going to rain other than Justin briefly mentioning it on our evening walk yesterday. So today I spent the day in bed. I made that dreadful call no one really wants to make into my job and then I sent Justin a text. I needed Justin to just hold my head and make all the pain go away. Although I knew he wasn’t going to leave work, I begged him anyway. He told me Mo-Mo was in charge and just that cracked a smile even through all the pain.
As I laid in my pitch black room I thought back to all those days I would miss school because I was sick. You know those days way back when you knew mom was going to take care of you but when you “grow up” mom isn’t there anymore and you are on your own. Today, I was on my own with nurse Snuggles and Dr. Mo-Mo. It was rough but we made it through. After sleeping for quite some time I woke up and Snuggles was on one side of me and Mo-Mo was on the other side. So I did a little photo shoot and they are adorable! But I also woke up and realized that is exactly what I needed.
I needed to sleep and forget about everything for the day. Regardless of the headache for that brief moment there was no stress, no thoughts, and no worries. Sometimes that is just what we need is that day to float away. I know its a lot easier than done! But after I had woken up I realized that I didn’t need Justin or mom to make it go “away”, I needed that R&R.
When I say life throws us a curve ball, almost everyone can relate. We all have our own story, our own life, and our own commitments. When something unexpected happens we just want to shut down but if we always shut down, where would we be today? I have a friend who is going through one really tough time right now and although she wants to shut down I keep pushing her. I reminded her again tonight that she just needs to have that brief moment that where she floats away from life. We all do!
Every night when I sit here and write, I get lost in my words. Life floats away for that brief moment regardless of what I am going through. Regardless of the curve ball called life 🙂
