In Life I Trust, Oh Really
In my last post I wrote about how I trust Life to guide me in my life. Well, which way is Life now guiding me?
In my second week on my new job my right hip began to hurt really bad. I've had this pain before and have been able to work through it. I believe it is from the truck driver seats. In the past I have been able to petition my employer to get me an appropriate seat, however, I will not be able to do this now because I will be using what ever truck is available each day. And all the trucks are old and the seats in really bad shape. So now what? Is Life guiding me to get out of trucking all together? If I am unable to deal with the hip situation I have no choice. I can't help but wonder if this is happening because I would really prefer to get out of driving for a livelihood.
The pain is really intense and even with a three day weekend it has not gotten better. I have been hanging out with intense pain and no position really helps. To keep driving does not seem like such a good thing to do. However, I went to the chiropractor this morning and with a good jerk to my leg I felt and heard my hip pop! It still hurts, but it feels like I have a chance to work with it. I have also done research on exercises and stretches that may do me well.
While I am not ready to make a career change, I don't think this is what Life is pushing me toward right now. I'm taking the view that what my opportunity is, is to work with exercise and stretching to heal my hip, but much more. I believe what Life is pushing me toward is to go deeper into taking care of my body with weight loss and building my muscle support is .
Now I know that belief can be challenged and put down or dismissed and this does not matter. The important thing for me is how this helps shape my attitude toward my life. My belief that Life is guiding me may or may not be true, but what is true is that this more positive attitude helps me to stay calm and take the next step to keeping my proverbial shit together and just feel better in my life!
