I am not sure what religion recognizes Thursday as the day of rest but in the spiritual world of healing for Emily it was certainly recognized today. With her new outlook (see the last post) she challenged the day yesterday. Today she still challenged it but did so by resting her head.
I think there are two big things to take away from today. First, Emily was able to rest! She took a nap in the afternoon. This is a girl that struggles to sleep through the night and she was able to take a nap....that is incredible.
Second, she listened to her body cues. We tried to walk today and did not make it as far as yesterday because she was tired from pushing herself the day before. And what we both realized is that is OK. There is a reason that her body is sending her signals to rest (especially because you can not kick ass when you are tired).
So watch out tomorrow. A well rested, motivated Emily is going to take you on (and win)!!
