How to Embrace Love and Life Fully With Just One Arm

It started with Bobby McFerrin’s song “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.” I just painted my fingernails in a hip summer color and tried to shorten the drying time by moving my arms to the rhythm of the music. It was fun, so I kept going one song after the other. The next day, I woke up with pain in my left arm. 

But hey … why worry, as my right arm was still working great! 

So, this summer, I learned to do everything with just one arm. I invented a new dog paddle swim style, I decided to comb my hair in an asymmetric way and I mastered all men’s talent to unclasp a bra with just one hand.

Also, the interior design of my bathroom was affected by my painful physical limitation. Instead of displaying my precious body lotions and beautiful perfume flacons, anti-inflammation creams and massage oils are now dominating the decoration.

And finally, my sweetheart downsized his needs and desires and surrendered to a hug with just one arm.

How far do we go by accepting limitations in love and life?

Last year, I struggled with the flu for three months until a consultation at my homeopath wiped it out within 48 hours. How long will my actual health drama undermine my pleasure in love and life this time? Did you know …

There exists a dangerous trap called “do-it-yourself.”

We walk out pains and limitations far too long alone. What if my healthy right arm refused to handle my daily challenges? What if the pleasure of embracing my sweet husband vanished fully?

A The Guardian article says: “Procrastination is not just an irritating habit. It is an affliction that ruins millions of lives and often requires therapy and other treatment. According to new research, one person in five now suffers from the problem so badly that their careers, relationships and health are threatened. It also indirectly affects health by discouraging visits to the dentist or doctor.”

My personal story applies to all aspects of life. 

Therefore, as a first step, I challenge you to take a deep look at your actual situation. Get to a quiet place and ask yourself: “In which aspects of my love relationship and life did I become used to downsizing my needs and desires?”
