For 2 months I was plagued with an incredibly sore right shoulder and a left hand that couldn't even grip my toothpaste tube to open it. It was horrific. I was obsessed with how much it hurt. I iced. I heated. I stretched. I rubbed on various creams. I took Advil. I whined. Nothing helped!
Fast forward to January 14th when my dog, Skye, came up lame after a run. She was diagnosed with an ACL tear and scheduled for surgery on January 26th. All of a sudden she had all of my attention.
Guess what I noticed this last week? Yep - my shoulder and my hand didn't hurt at all. By NOT paying attention to something and focusing on something else it went away.
That shows the power of paying attention - the power of noticing!
What might you start paying INATTENTION to so that it can go away?
