IMG_6635I was so envious of Sheba this morning. There she was, asleep on the rug, not a care in the world, not a tense bone in her body - at perfect ease.

That's the state I am seldom in.  But I am improving. I'm reading Lissa Rankin's book, Mind Over Medicine and becoming more aware of how I am living and my un-ease.  It's not all about doing the proper things like diet, exercise and genetics.  There's much more.

There's our attitudes, moods and a thing call happiness that affects our health and our ability to heal ourselves.    I did not know that I was living in a constant state of distress until I left the world of nursing - code Blues, stats, call bells and bedpan alley.

Now I know and it is the next morning.

I listened and heeded my body and went to bed instead of finishing this post last night.  I needed sleep and knew if I stayed up, sleep might escape me.  And I have slept well in the night and up early this morning.  I drank my lemon water and did my qigong routines, guiding my body and mind into ease for the coming day.

IMG_0829The birds are singing, the sun is shining. Sheba is resting after our romp in the park. I will leave her sleeping self  be.   I could learn to relax myself watching her.

I sipped my tea, thinking of how I will weave my story for the Friday Fictioneers post.  Life is good.  I can relax.  It is okay.
