We all have that little voice inside of our head.
There is a nice apple in the fridge for you instead of that cookie.
Come on, 10 more minutes of studying then you can have a break.
Don’t put your hand in boiling water, you will get burn.
Right now, my voice is telling me that since I was born, I have a curved spine. And I also have arthritis in my lower back and hip so I am bound to have pain. It is also the middle of winter and having colds is common.
So it is realistic to have back spasms and it is a coincidence you caught a cold on the same day. Except the only coincidences that I believe are I showed up at a party wearing the same outfit as another person. Or I have pizza for lunch and my boyfriend takes me out to dinner and we ended up having pizza.
Anyway, so after I was finally able to moved the heavy boxes down where I can sort them out, my back started spasming like crazy. And on the second day, I caught a bad head cold where my ears were even hurting. So I spent the last two days in bed. I am still sick today, but at least my back is much better where I was able to move around.
So back to realistic expectation, I should have expected my back was going to give me grief while I was cleaning out and sorting out my arts and crafts despite that I was careful and took it slow.
And Rome wasn’t built in a day so why should I expect my art space to be organized in a week.
I’m starting to think that for my New Year’s Resolution for 2018, should be eat more chocolate, drink more slurpees, and do more impulse buying. Those are easier to keep than this.
