Recently I started having some pain in the ball of my foot. This was a few weeks after I had restarted teaching Pilates and yoga. This followed my previous trajectory of starting to teach exercise and then psyching myself out to the point where I feel a bit overzealous in my own exercising and get injured.
Thankfully this injury is much less intense than the back injury I had in 2011. But similar to when I injured my back, I can no longer do some of the yoga poses that I had done on a daily basis. Which frees up more time for sitting with my thoughts, which often leads to writing.
So again, I turn to my fingers to help me get through this frustrating time.
Injury breeds thoughts and pensiveness, which lead to writing, and hopefully healing—physically AND emotionally.
