As you all know, I was badly affected by Madras Eye Infection last month. Already I had undergone an eye surgery during December 2017. So this August had forced digital detox to me. But I have no regrets for that and here’s the reason – 5 Things I feel Grateful For My Eye Infection…
5 Things I feel Grateful For My Eye Infection
I used to be a person who forces myself to complete all my tasks either blogging or house chores at targeted times. I will start my day early with a “to-do” list and will be satisfied only if all that listed items get completed. Hope you can understand this urgency and rush. But due to my eye infection, I did all the works slowly and happily. This is new to me. And I realized that life becomes less messy if we learn to slow down. I could enjoy the flavor of my coffee, smell the fragrance of hibiscus from our garden and listen to my favorite playlists. So much grateful.
Disconnecting To Reconnect
I already love to practice digital detox daily. But my blogging and writing works need some dedicated screen time. And this August I started making little changes in my lifestyle to reduce my screen time completely. For the whole of August, I was away from screens, So I relaxed a lot, I disconnected to reconnect with my soul.
More Mindful Me Moments
This Moment only matters. Not the past or the future. The resource that kept me grounded during all these moments is being mindful. So I had a good chance of more Mindful Me Moments. Also, I did Body Scan Meditation and Five Finger Gratitude Prayer every day. I was happy than ever that I could connect with my body and soul at an ease.
“This Moment only matters. Not the past or the future.”
Loving and Happy Moods
Sometimes being married in the same place as we were living is disadvantageous. I am living near my mom’s house and she used to come to my house every day during the nights. So I hardly had a chance to stay at my mom’s house. The longest stay earlier was during my son’s birth for 40 days. But I feel so happy that I stayed in my mom’s house for more than one month since our house painting works were also going on at that time. And I feel a peace that I am able to get big support from my family and relatives. Each one of them extended the best help in all possible ways to me. In spite of all these, I was able to continue my practice of Loving Kindness Meditation and be grateful for God’s plan.
Healing Needs Time
I was advised to take drops 10 times in a day and ointment three times a day. But the healing was not as expected. So I was fearing for anything serious. but the doctors said that you may need 15 days to recover while normal people may recover within 5 to 6 days. And what they said was 100% correct. My infection got completely cured only after 20 days. the lesson I learned was healing needs time yet if trust the process and keep yourself calm, healing may work faster.
