Lesson Learned!


December 22, 2010 by Marj Hatzell

Ok! I get it now!

I need to slow down, to take better care of myself. I have to stop pushing all of my needs aside to take care of everyone else.

I need to say, “No!” sometimes. Well, most of the time. I need to stop doing, doing, doing. I don’t have to be the Energizer Bunny.

I don’t have to be supermom. I’m doing a good job. I don’t have to be a perfectionist (It’s CDO, in the right order).

Now, can my back stop hurting and go back to normal, please? I promise I won’t overdo it (for the first few days) and I promise I’ll never forget this excruciating pain if I can just get my life back. I’ll even, like, eat better and exercise and get more sleep and stuff. I’ll even get a pedicure! Or a haircut!  Or file my nails! Or shave (sorry, TMI)! Honest!  Now, pesky discs, slip back into place in 3…2…1…

    And have they slipped back into place? Something tells me it’s going to take more than a slipped disc to make you take care of yourself FIRST!

    I realized this fall I’d somehow lost last year. It was one of the not-so-fun one’s where I was fighting school and teacher’s and…. You know, those kinds of messes.

    Everything is going well this year – better not get any surprises in the report cards in Feb – and I’ve finally started looking after me. Admit to feeling guilty at it some of the time…. but…. if Mom’s not happy…. that saying is too true sometimes.

    I don’t like to criticize but your timing is definitely off. The holiday season is indeed the busiest time of the year so that was very bad planning on your part. Next time you want to tamper with your discs I would respectfully suggest that any other time would be preferable. On the other hand……..maybe sitting down and resting whilst surrounded by happy family members who aren’t at school or work might be just the ticket to a speedy recovery………at least I hope so.
