Last night while in bed – I was lying very still, trying to sleep – when all of a sudden I started to get an annoying tensing up in my foot. It was the precursor to a foot cramp. You know the kind – you can’t get rid of it unless you get up from your comfortable position of ALMOST being asleep – and have to STAND on the stupid thing.
It DEMANDED my immediate attention. I could not simply “will” it away.
I tried to concentrate really hard – and it seems the more I concentrated on it – the more it became something I had to take care of.
This is a little like life, isn’t it?
When was the last time the “necessary” took over? Did you try to concentrate on something else – hoping it would go away? Did you end up having to give it your full attention – even though at the time it was annoying and inconvenient?
I think this is what a brain cramp is like. It hurts – it’s painful. It reminds us that we must take care of something – whether we want to – or not. It is simply a way of getting our attention – right or wrong.
Do you have brain cramps? Foot cramps? Please share 🙂
