“Noticing”

"Monday, Monday."  I was coming down the stairs from the upstairs room.  I got to the last step and stepped down.  I took a wrong step and twisted my foot.  It hurt and I couldn't stand on it.  Thus, we had a trip to the Dr.: Dr. appointment, X-rays.  I have a slight chip on my ankle bone.  Ugh.   So,  It's time  for resting, icing and pain management.   I will see the Dr. again in 2 weeks.  

"What a pain. How could this happen", I said to my husband. 
"Things happen", he replied.  
It can seem like quite a downer when things go wrong or when what we thought should happen doesn't. Life sure can throw some curve balls our way.  And yet things line up "As Is".  I’m noticing how things work out and in sync, even when it doesn’t seem like it.  

For instance,  my husband is unemployed  at  this time.  He was home looking for another job when this happened.  "Now no, that's not good".  Yet if he was working at a job He probably would have had to take "time off" to help me.  "As Is",  He's home and is helping me. Oh, granted, I can't work my P-T job in the morning at the school.  Well,  I don't know here .  All I can say is "Things go as they go".    Some things just are what they are.  "Who knows". 

My husband brought my Mac computer downstairs so I could do my stuff on the computer.  I check my email,  my blog,  forums, ect.  Oh, and I typed this article for my newsletter. So this accident hasn't stopped me in some ways. 

OK, It's hard to move around. Perhaps  I needed to be reminded to slow down sometimes.I’m  also finding I have no choice but to relax, and reminded to not get impatient.  To just  let things be as they are. Usually I’m on the go to get things done like errands, cleaning, art work, etc.   Yet now I must rest to allow my foot to heal. 

Things happen.  Life happens.
   

We can't  know what's ahead. What we can do is:
Be open to the idea that things are what they are at the moment.
Be open when things don't go our way.
And do the best we can.
If something doesn't go the way we expected, perhaps it was because it wasn't quite a fit.  Maybe we need to be patient.  Maybe there is something just around the corner that we can't see yet that might be a perfect fit. 

"Who knows".  Dare to ask that and be open.
