You don’t have to get sick or get hurt for you to slow down.
Recently, the universe asked me to slow down.
I was ripping down the mountain on my snowboard when, out of nowhere, I ate it big time.
It was an ice day, so the snow was extra packed, basically like concrete.
I caught an icy heel edge and launched backward down the mountain in the air.
I landed on my spine, whiplashing my neck and cracking my helmet.
It was a hard hit. I was shaken, but OK.
I then made it down the mountain and went to the beer tube to get a pint.
I relaxed for a bit and decompressed from the fall.
I then went up for another two runs to “get back on the proverbial horse.”
I knew I was off, so I called it an afternoon earlier than usual.
I got home and Steph, my lover, ran me an Epsom salt bath to soak my weary body.
My ribs hurt, my neck was stiff, my spine was sore, but nothing out of the ordinary due to an impact such as I had.
It was on Tuesday morning when I finally went to my chiropractor and got x-rays taken.
The x-rays were from 3 angles of my neck, and although inconclusive, they showed that I may have fractured my C1 and C2 vertebrae in my neck, the top bones in your spine that allow your head to pivot side to side.
It looks like it was still in the proper placement and just needs time and rest to heal but my Chiro said we need to get an MRI done to get a proper final diagnosis.
The point is: sometimes the universe wants you to slow down.
It’s warning you… or else something worse could happen.
Slow down with your business or you could potentially burn out.
Slow down or you could potentially injure your body.
With your neglected relationship, slow down and get present or risk potentially losing your partner.
Sometimes you have to slow down in order to speed up.
