Let's get up and get out. Let's stretch and walk. Let's dance. It's not a permanent fix by any means, but we can feel better for a little while, and that's worth something. Let's rise above our ailments and mush on in spite of them. We can take the time we need to be tender and compassionate with all of the ways that we hurt, but we cannot wallow in them or we will drown. At some point or other, if we want some relief, we have to make the decision to pick ourselves up and carry on.
When I am in pain, I take the time I need to rest and heal, but at some point or other, I have to get on with the activity of living my life.
