I'm celebrating today. I'm celebrating something somewhat odd. Today I woke up pain-free. Yes, pain-free for the first time in months. I have suffered with lower back pain in the morning for a couple of years now, and it has been very severe since I developed a bulging lumbar disk. I am an early riser for 2 reasons. One, I love the quiet of the early morning. Two, if I stay in bed past 7 a.m. I suffer from severe back spasms for most of the morning.
Today I slept till 8 am and had NO pain at all. No lower back spasms or pain radiating down my left leg. So my Sunday Shine post is dedicated to the gratitude I have in my heart right now. I wasn't aware how much the pain dimmed my mornings, until I arose without it.
How did this happen? I may not have any scientific proof to back my theory up, but I have a feeling that the daily Reiki self-healings have something to do with it. I don't know if I'll wake tomorrow this way, but it doesn't matter. Today is the only day I need to focus on, right?
So I leave you this bright, sunshiny day with one of my favorite songs.
Keep it shiny!
