The Glass Is Full

I have been anxiously awaiting this day of surgery, and finally having my hip replaced. I’ve been in pain off and on for over 5 years, and this last year the pain became debilitating. I rarely sleep more than 3-4 hours at a time. I’m exhausted, and more than ready. Yes, there is trepidation. I’ve never had surgery, and the thought of being knocked out makes me worry. I don’t love the idea of being incapacitated while there is so much going on around me. It is the unknown that gets me, but other than those small twinges of discomfort, I am excited about the likely possibility of relief. Being a full time yoga teacher, I make my living by having a healthy and fully functioning body. I feel my attitude towards my body shifting. I’m more compassionate and caring, practicing more self care, and reframing negative thoughts as they come. I welcome this journey, and all I am learning.
