One of the greatest miracles in this life is the fact that for the most part, our bodies were designed to heal. But one of the greatest challenges in this life is finding the patience to let it happen. We never know how long something will take to get better and if we don't surrender to the process in its own time, it takes longer and becomes more painful. A woman who worked out in my gym had a hip replacement and several weeks later, she put on high heels and went dancing. As you can imagine, that didn't turn out well. Another woman I know had an acupuncture treatment for a sore hip and when she got home, instead of resting her body, she weeded her garden for the next four hours. Not much healing there either.
