Balance is the key to life. This week I ended up in the hospital with kidney stones and emergency stent surgery. I also found out I have more stones in both kidneys to deal with. Kidneys are Chi, life force. Without it, we have nothing. Stops you dead in your tracks. Your body speaks your mind. Where there is chaos things become unbalanced, foundation is shook, confusion ensues. It’s in these big wake up call moments that our bodies are yelling at us to listen to heed the warnings. I laid in the hospital bed reflecting on the last year of my life. Realizing how much I had persevered, how much I had been through. It’s overwhelming. I never stopped to praise myself yet kept pressing through exhaustion which only lead to more weakness. Then it hit me. The answers are always there. The former yogi in me needs to meet periodically with the Go go go real estate professional. They both need each other. One without the other creates imbalance as I found out this week.... so as I recuperate slowly, gently, guess where I will be this morning before everything? Back on the mat..... balance is everything. What positive coping strategies do you have in your life at your disposal?
