Yep. I wasn’t looking, I wasn’t being mindful, I was probably rushing. Plus at 5’1″ (I like to round up), I rarely have to duck under anything. But last week rather than take those few moments to let the garage door open all the way, I forged ahead, thought I had sufficiently ducked, and WHAM!
Whiplash and a mild concussion did NOT fit into my schedule at all.
Since I’m still on the mend from some major surgery, I’m supposed to be easing in, talking it slow. Of course once I was feeling better, I probably started going full speed too soon. I felt guilty making time for rest. But as I know all too well, when I’m having a hard time learning a lesson something will be put in my path to remind me (literally in this case.).
Rest is not a luxury, it is a necessity.
I’m learning my lesson on this. In fact this latest stunt helped to drive home the message, so in Kristen vs the garage door, despite the bump on my head, I may have actually won.
