Put A Bandaid On It…
So a few months ago I pulled a tendon in my left arm. It took forever to heal because I kept going right back out and doing the thing that caused the damage in the first place, #dagorhir (you’re going to have to Google it). After weeks of it not healing I finally took a few weeks off from sparring and gym workouts to let it heal. Then I gradually re-engaged in both #dagorhir and gym workouts. It took time but it healed.
So what do you think I did when I pulled a tendon in my right arm a few weeks later (this was after a pulled abdominal muscle and a few thumb smashes…#dagorhir)? I went right back at it without allowing time for healing. Of course once I finally took a few weeks off it began to heal; I am still in that healing process.
I look at our nation now and I see a nation that needs to heal, from wounds of lost loved ones, from wounds of lost trust and confidence, and from wounds caused by hatred and bigotry. This nation, we make up this nation, need time to heal.
Over the Christmas weekend take some time to heal. Step away from the keyboard. Don’t respond to any flagrant posts or tweets. Ignore the rants and tirades and spend the weekend with family and loved ones. We all need time to heal. #merrychristmas.
