Mum struggled to keep her head up because she felt so bad to be so bent over. She walked more miles in her life than anyone I have known and was as strong as a horse but her bones let her down.

Have Patience with your Bones

I am not a patient person, never have been. Back in my hyper-active, burning-out-my-adrenals, I-want-it-now phase, I was horribly impatient. Now I’m much more mellow, thank goodness 😉

Because, you know what, impatience doesn’t help anything happen sooner and it eats the joy out of my life. I was a bit worried when I started mellowing out that nothing would get done. But the opposite is true! I get more done when I’m coming from joy energy and it doesn’t take a toll on my body.

So don’t put your vest on for the first time and expect it to change your bones in a week. In fact, better not to even think in those terms. Better to think, this is the first step into a new life. A life of loving and appreciating my body, of listening to see when it needs more attention, of feeding it what it needs, of being out in nature to restore my connection with the Earth. It’s time to treat my body as if it was the best partner I ever had and I wouldn’t ever want it to leave me. Because that is the truth 😉

The good news is that bones do change much faster than doctors say. The reason they say come back in two years and we will Dexa you again is because Medicare will not pay for Dexa scans any more often than that. So every three months you can have a urine test for bone markers or you can have a sonar scan on your ankle and you’ll find out if your bones are still getting worse – as expected over 50 – or if they are holding steady, or if they are actually getting slightly better each time.

So this week why don’t you notice when you are getting impatient about anything in your life and just let it go. Tap on it with the instructions from the last newsletter, you can find that at the blog here Scroll down to the post about stress. Then notice how that changes your life, makes it easier, and makes you more pleasant to be around 😉

Some women are born mellow and manage to stay that way their whole lives. They don’t take things personally, don’t get upset over small things, enjoy most moments. Who knows how they got so lucky, good genes, good parents? If you aren’t that way, you are not alone, you have a lot of soul sisters, but you can learn to let your impatience go in just a minute or two of tapping and start moving into acceptance of life as it is.

I was hoping to have a picture of me in my new yoga hammock hanging upside down for this newsletter but when the hammock arrived yesterday it was the wrong one so now it will be another ten days. Oh well! C’est la vie! Will this delay matter if I look back from 5 years down the road? Nope! I know everything happens in it’s perfect time in my life – even if my mind often would argue with that belief.

So have an ease-filled, supremely patient life until next time, and take the time to tune in and just FEEL those bones growing,
