However, I think I understand the basics of rehabilitation.
Tim and I have been using rehab as an analogy for this process. There are times when we stretch far, and then we have to take a break. Not a break from this process, we don’t stop working on this, but we have to take a breather.
Saturday was a HUGE stretch. And I’m feeling the burn!!
That does NOT mean I regret it or think it was a bad choice. I went back and forth a lot over the month or so leading up to our renewal ceremony. I would want to cancel it, then I would want to do it, then I would feel anxious about it, then I would be excited for it. But at the end of the day, I was so glad we did it. It was definitely the right thing for us to do.
But it was still a big stretch.
And I’m feeling the burn.
There are a whole new set of emotions, things to deal with in my head, pray through. And so I need a breather. I need a rest so that I can catch up to what happened.
It was a good stretch, but it was a big one, and it hurts. And now we need to let the muscles catch up.
Just another step in this process.
I wish there was some sort of point system. Like if we acquire a certain amount of points we conquer the game and this could be over!
But that’s not the way life works.
So for now, today, I am resting after my rehab session.
It’s hard, and it hurts, but right now I’m hanging in there.
