I had significant injury to my neck and shoulders recently and had to sit out on some performances I'd worked very hard for. To say it was extremely disappointing is an understatement, but I am also learning some good lessons:
1) Try not to think too much. Some things don't require so much worrying.
2) Realize that your mind may be ambitious, but your body needs rest. Listen to it, or it will make it impossible for you to do anything at all!
3) Never take for granted what it feels like to be able to move freely, and without significant pain.
I am so grateful to those who have given me support these past weeks. Your encouragement means so much. Thank you!
