EVERYTHING hurts!

Yesterday I worked at trimming a tree, two shrubs and clearing rock away from a pathway that hubby and I will install brick.

And today, EVERYTHING hurts!

Usually when I spend a day of physical labor, I am wise, and take an anti inflammatory medication at the end of that day. This usually ensures that I sleep well that night and that I do not awaken the next day in agony … yesterday I was not wise!

That said, I love that summer avails me the time and opportunity to get some physical labor done around our property … in the most creative of ways.

Often we look at that activity, which pays the bills, as our one and only. We invest one hundred percent of our time, energy and creativity into that one thing.

But we humans are more than one dimensional.

We can be injured (physically), deal with a mental illness or suffer with spiritual starvation … three parts of who we are.

In the same way, we are healthier when we work hard our bodies, work for money and participate in creating things. Not one is more important, and all make for a healthier whole.

It gives me perspective into looking at when work/school begin in the fall. I need to remember that my whole is not defined simply by what brings home a paycheque, but also what keeps me moving, and what keeps me dreaming and creating.
