So I had gum graft surgery, and life is returning to a new normal. This means eating foods from a blender, trying not to make any facial expressions, and not talking. I hadn’t realized how much I talked until I couldn’t.
Some things I’ve learned as a result of the surgery:
- Don’t think and/or worry about things you cannot control.
- It’s okay to let others take care of you and help out.
- Just focusing on this moment is a Fine Thing.
- The blender is a blessed tool. And is not just for frozen mixed drinks.
- Sometimes you just need to take the day off and do nothing. And that’s okay.
As for writing, I did my fifteen minutes today, not expecting much to come of it. However, I got some ideas for a creativity project which I can use, so I’ll call that good.
As with everything it seems, it’s all about small moves. Very small moves.
Ah, yes… Very small moves! Good for you. Good lessons… I just wish I didn’t have to learn those over and over. 🙂 Thanks for the reminder of how to go about life. I DO remember those days after those surgeries.
