Restrained not Broken

Sometimes life 
throws a restraining 
order on you,
you feel like a trapped tiger
wanting to escape,
 but the thing with restraint the more
you try to wriggle out of it
the tighter the restraint
becomes.

Acceptance of the situation means
stilling yourself, biding your time,
seeing the beauty that exists even when
boundaries are erected around you.
"Nothing stays the same, this too will pass"

what is death to the caterpillar, is life to the butterfly! your post brims with the power of true surrender and acceptance. two years ago I ruptured a disk in my back and was bed stricken for months! I came to know, like you, the power of surrender. blessings

...while within that restraint... listen for the still, small whisper. It will be profound!

Peace be with you,

You are wise not to struggle against it. May this time of healing make you stronger than ever.

We all live moments to years of binding restraint. You are very wise, sometimes it is best to just "stay" be at peace and wait. All things eventually change.
Wonderful photography to illustrate your wisdom.

Like you said...this too shall pass. Sending you light and love to get through this. I am enjoying the view though from your place of restraint.

When I am constrained, that is when I think best.
