Life Is Demanding Without Understanding

My feet HURT. A lot. Cramping, curling, stabbing, throbbing pain. And not just when I am standing or walking. All the time. When I'm sitting at my desk trying to get schoolwork done. While I'm watching TV trying to relax. While I’m laying in bed at night trying to fall asleep. The pain in my feet is exhausting in and of itself, not to mention the pain in my hands, the stiffness in my neck and shoulders, the general overall fatigue…Blargh!!

But this afternoon I had a massage with a new therapist (the one I had been seeing wasn’t working today.) And he told me that my skin was "angelic," without any blemishes. I have to admit that it was really nice to hear something good thing about my body, for a change. Also, as it turns out, he was a really good massage therapist, so I am actually feeling a bit better this evening.

And for those of you who are basking in the glory the profound title of this post, here’s another gem for you: No one’s gonna drag you up to get into the light where you belong.

Love the song reference. Did you know that this is the ballad that I performed my ribbon baton routine to in my third grade after-school program? Yeah it is.

Jazz dance was to the tune of "Surfin USA."

Ah, it was a simpler time.

just because a swedish 90's pop-synth band said it don't make it any less true!

do you think a wooden-foot roller thingie would help? i have one under my desk and it helps a little when my feet are tired from walking around the city -- let me know if you think it will help and i'll get you one.

i'm sending you good thoughts!

love you!

A: I don't think you can ever refer to a song by a Swedish 90's pop-synth band as a "ballad" ~;o)

thekubota: i think you are right. it doesn't make it any less true.

i actually have a plug-in heating pad under my desk and that does seem to help make my feet at least a little bit less distracting while i'm attempting to study.

and thanks for the good thoughts, both of you.
