Maybe everything is unfolding as it should for the resources we possess right now. Maybe we too often overreach or underestimate ourselves. Maybe we've been tired one too many days in a row. Maybe discomfort is not a nuisance, but a nudge urging us toward the chair, the bed, the teapot for just five more minutes. Maybe ten.
Maybe we need to be better stewards of these bodies.
And at the same time, maybe we don't have to read so much into every ache and pain, every shifting mood.
