A pain in the hand
I had a chiropractic appointment on Monday just for a regular checkup. While I was there I mentioned I was getting some pins and needles in my left hand just in my ring finger and pinky. He checked it out and told me I'm in the early stages of carpel tunnel. Oh great - just what every data entry person wants to hear right? WRONG. This wasn't news I wanted to hear but sadly it was news I needed to hear.
Hearing I'm developing carpel tunnel has given me a serious kick up the butt - what do I want to do with my life. I can't keep processing data all day every day, it's damaging my health (plus I've been doing it for 2.5 years now).
Telling this news to work was not fun, it then involved having to get a clearance certificate from a doctor just so I can return to work. Then the doctor confirmed yes I do have it in my left wrist and now I need a CT scan (which was done today) and then a visit to a specialist to have a nerve conduction study done.
MJ and I have made the decision for me to drop my Thursdays to help with the pain while I start the long search of looking for a new job - not the best thing to be doing just before Christmas. Now I'm stuck with the dilemma again of what do I want to do? I'm sick of working in an office.
MJ asked me to work out what do I want to achieve in life. That was an interesting question and this is what I came up with.
"I would like to educate people on healthy achievable living. I'd like to educate them through my blog, in person, my own ebooks/books, recipe books, any way I can".
Now I just need to work out how I can do this and how can I make a living out of it. Can it be done? How can it be done? So many questions, not sure where to find answers.
Maybe this hand injury is a blessing in disguise as it's forcing me to re-evaluate my life and how I want to make my mark on this planet.
What do you want to achieve in life? Are you achieving it? If so how are going about it?
