Isn’t funny how you can go to bed restless, exhausted and overwhelmed and wake up to the sun shining, birds chirping, and crisp air in the morning. Its as if the whole world didn’t even care that you had a hard night. That’s because it didn’t. Then you realize you are rejuvenated, clear of mind, full of peace and trusting in G-d that today will be good. Last night it was very obvious just how tired I was and now, I feel so much better and much more well rested. Although my body still feels fatigued and is making me question if going to the gym today will happen or not. That is one of the most frustrating aspects of my traumatic brain injury. I can go, go, go….go and then I’ve gone too far or too long without adequate rest and my body stops.
It stops until I rest, sleep, chill out and calm down. Then slowly it will heal and recoup enough to do more things again. I forgot how hard it is to feel fatigued. Thankfully that means my bodies ability to endure is getting back up there. However, its not there yet, so I still need to rest and take it easy. Learning how your body serves you is important, then you will hopefully prevent causing harm to it and you’ll promote rejuvenation daily. When I come to think of it, it is really strange that, “I woke up and the sun was shining”.
