Working Through The Pain

When things are tough, do the best you can! If you cannot give 100%, do the best you can. Any action is better than inaction. Right now, writing this piece is extremely difficult due to the pain I am currently experiencing in my lower back. But, I made a commitment to myself that I would write three to five posts each week, and I intend to keep my word.

Here’s the takeaway. When you decide to dream a ridiculously impossible dream, you will face ridiculously impossible obstacles. Even so, if you have the audacity to dream a ridiculously impossible dream, then you also possess the resources and ability to overcome ridiculously impossible obstacles and setbacks.

I develop this topic more in-depth on today’s podcast. Take a listen. Peace!!

In this episode… 1. No Days Off! 2. Assess Where You Are. 3. The Magical First Step. 4. Hard Work Is Not Always Rewarded. 5. A Danish and a Bottle of Water. 6. The Ultimate Package Deal.

  1. Pain is a bizarre thing. Mum has a therapist who came this week and said much of our pain originates in our brain. She reminded us that pain is real, but we don’t feel it when sleeping and when two body parts hurt, our brain can only process one adequately. So, if our back and head hurt (like mine at the moment), our brain recognizes one and the others kind of are along for the ride. So, to speak. I wasn’t sure I agreed, but it was interesting! So, hoping you start to feel better and kudos for going beyond the ouch and over the obstacles.

    1. Thank you! 🙂 I don’t remember lifting any heavy objects or bending down awkwardly, so I think the pain is due to prolonged sitting. I do know this, and that is, it hurts like hell. 🙂 But who’s complaining.


    1. Thank you, Victoria! Yes, this pain is unlike anything I’ve experienced. But no moping here. Here’s something you’d probably find random and interesting. Eating snacks has given me some relief…no kidding. Of course, as soon as I made the connection, I “Googled” my finding to see if there was any correlation between me eating snacks and the pain subsiding, and guess what I learned. The body rewards fatty, salty, sugary foods by releasing endogenous opioids, which help control pain.

  2. These words speak to me. We’ve got to push through aches and pains and the general feeling of tiredness to reach our goals and succeed.
    Love and light to you, friend.

  3. Not sure if you are a follower of natural medicine but have you looked into Painful Obstruction Syndrome? Also, our bodies sometimes hold on to past injuries and when under stress it comes back again. I will be writing something on my blog about this soon. Let me know what you find.

    1. I just looked up Painful Obstruction Syndrome and will study it a bit more. I think the pain and discomfort I experienced stemmed from sitting 12-15 hours daily for three months. I have since taken corrective action, which has me feeling like a new man. Now, when working, I take short breaks and avoid sitting for more than an hour, and work while standing or moving. I have never taken medicine of any kind (that’s the way I was raised). I usually resort to natural remedies for treatment. Still, I look forward to what you have to say about the subject.

      1. That’s great. Also look up Stagnant Qi And Blood. That will tell you a bit more too. I was raised that way too and I don’t take “medicine” now either. I’ll be posting soon. Thanks.
