Soldiering on vs. Surrender

Soldiering on vs. Surrender

So, I had a yucky cold for about 2 weeks…

From the last week of my lovely holiday, exacerbated by a night flight with a toddler on my lap, loads of work, and aforementioned toddler now jet lagged and not sleeping well when I returned. I was ignoring it, soldiering on sans Codral, (because that’s off limits when you’re preggers).  Nasal sprays, Panadol and whole-food vitamins were my only friends. 

For a while I kept my schedule the same with prior booked commitments and an impending sense of urgency on all the ‘essential’ tasks before due date.

That is until I couldn’t anymore.

My eyes were stinging and bloodshot, nose running, head pounding, and finally I listened to my body. I acknowledged that I was, in fact, sick and needed to go to bed. So I cancelled an afternoon, loaded up on vitamins, herbal remedies and garlic and sent myself off to bed.

Oh sweet surrender!

Since giving in to my cold and actually honouring my body with what it needed, I have been making a miraculous recovery. Who knew!?! 

It reminds me of the brilliant Carl Jung quote, what we resist persists. While resisting and ignoring my cold, I could not heal. Only when I accepted it, as inconvenient as it was, and surrendered to it, was I able to pass through the other side. 

It makes me wonder where else I am resisting?  

Where else I can simply surrender?  

And I wonder for you too.

Where could you choose to surrender the fight today and honour yourself?
