I had so many plans leading up to last weekend – plans to create all manner of things, big projects and small. A weekend off is a rare treat for me and, whilst I rarely resort to a “to-do” list any more, I had a clear “Plan A” drawn up in my mind.
As it turns out, my body had other ideas, and decided to take me out of the game for a few days. In that time, I created a lot of Zzzzzzz’s as I lay on my sick bed at best marvelling at just how many hours I was capable of sleeping for!
I have to admit, I did find this a tiny bit frustrating. But I’m also noticing how much less attached to my plans I am than I used to be. I see that often, deeper wisdom has a far better “Plan B” ready for me to explore if I’m only willing to relinquish my own finely-crafted “Plan A”.
Having lived life at a frantic pace over the last few years, I’m learning to slow down and listen to what my body is telling me. In fact, I often hear myself telling my patients to listen to the physical signals their bodies give them. There’s a wisdom in the body that we ignore at our peril. If we don’t slow down and listen, it will find ways to stop us in our tracks.
So, I didn’t create the stuff I thought I would in the last few days – but even in the last few hours as my energy has been restored, I’ve surprised myself with what can get created when we allow ourselves to be replenished.
Looks like I finally took some of my own “Best Medicine”!
