I just had cataract surgery on Monday. My aunt tells me I'm much too young to be having it, but I think such things are no respecter of age!
Before my surgery, I found myself much more anxious and nervous than I typically am. It bothered me at first because I'm more accustomed to taking things in stride. And then I remembered all the tips I give clients and that I put into these blogs and recalled that I'm also speaking to myself! I talk often about ways to stay grounded and to flex with things that come our way. And I know you've heard me say more than once: Face (and feel) your fear and do what you need to do anyway.
So I took my own advice and did some deep breathing. I read from some of my favorite inspirational books. I prayed. I reached out to family and friends.
And do you know what? It all helped! Funny about that, isn't it?
