Patience


Patience does not come easy to me, especially when it comes to my health. I am so used to a quick fix, taking a pill to immediately alleviate the symptoms.


But not this time. Healing myself naturally is a whole different story.


It takes time and patience. It has ups and downs and is not just physical but also psychological and emotional. There are good days and bad days. Days when it all feels like too much and also great days where I feel so much better and can see the progress I have made.


My digestive symptoms are so much better now but I still have sinus issues and my ears are clogged. Just when I thought I was finally healing, the sinus issues came back full force.


During yoga today I had an epiphany. Instead of getting angry or frustrated at these symptoms I need to look at them with curiosity. They must be here still because my healing journey is not over yet. What are they here to teach me? What part of this healing process still needs more attention? Where can I grow more?


I decided to make a list of all I am grateful for health wise and all that I have learned over this past year. I have come so far! And this is important to remember. I am leaning into being patient with my body and open to hearing what it is trying to tell me. I know I am on the right path and just need to trust that I will get where I want to be eventually.
