My crash landing resulted in an extremely bruised tailbone and two sore wrists. And I'm talking really sore. Like, I couldn't even squeeze out toothpaste, or brush my hair, or change a diaper (although, I didn't miss that as much). I haven't experienced that kind of physical pain since a ski accident several years ago.
The reason I'm telling you this is that I have discovered a whole new respect for my wrists. These little joints do so much activity in one day, and I've never paid much attention to them. So I find it appropriate that the Creative Every Day theme for January happens to be about the "body." I couldn't resist doing a quick journal page to pay respect and tribute to my wrists. I have learned that they pull, twist, turn, hug, lift, love, express, reach, expand, dance, hold and help me move through my day with ease.
Your Personal Reflection: When's the last time you really noticed all the amazing, subtle things your body does on a daily basis? Take some time to be present, to notice, and to deeply look at your body. Go ahead...no one's watching...give yourself a hug and tell your body "thanks!"
