Rolled My Ankle

Hey everyone!

Unfortunately, when I was at the park with my mom, sister and my niece, I was rolled my ankle. So now I am officially on bed rest and I have to rest up until I heal fully. Since I never rolled my ankle before, it is a bit painful. But I have had a skin graft from a third degree, and have been hit by a car, I think it’s safe to say I can handle a bit of pain.

I guess now, I would have to just roll with it, aha! :p

Emotion -Eckhart Tolle

I really enjoy how insightful Eckhart Tolle’s book is. I enjoy reading it. Mindfulness is something I am practicing. I don’t want to have to worry about the past that is already over, and I don’t want to be anxious about my future because it isn’t here yet. The now is where I want to be.

“One of the main tasks of the mind is to fight or remove the emotional pain, which is one of the reasons for its incessant activity, but all it can ever achieve is to cover it up temporarily. In fact, the harder the mind struggles to get rid of the pain, the greater the pain.”

-Eckhart Tolle, Power of Now, page 28

When I was reading this, I related to it instantly. I remember trying to think of ways to remove the pain of something I was either thinking or feeling. It really was like the more I tried to forget about the pain, it felt like the pain was growing bigger. What I had to do, was just lay there and not concrete on the pain, but allow the pain to teach me what I needed to learn. Everything that you go through, teaches you what you are meant to know. The universe is always right. Learn to trust it.
