Time and Tide wait for No One

This shoulder injury has been soooo frustrating! I have been at home bored out of my gourd because I can't do the things I normally do. Even shampooing my hair is painful! They say "Time and Tide wait for no one, but I feel like I am waiting for it to catch up with me! Knitting and Crocheting, which normally give me so much joy, no only give me pain. The doctors says "time will tell" (Ugh!!!!) but there is a good possibility I may not be able to Knit again or even go back to my regular job :-(
I am trying so hard to be positive and believe this is for the best. I feel so....... restricted, limited.... so USELESS. I admit I am stubborn and will rarely admit I can't do something, so my ego has taken some bruising. I have had to learn that "pain" doesn't mean "weakness" and that bullying through that pain doesn't mean your strong.... or smart.
Where will I go now that my path has been altered? I have some new ideas for projects now that I am healed enough to have a normal routine. Been sussing them out on paper and hope to bring them to life soon. Guess time will tell... I just hate waiting.

In this time of change the lines of a Robert Frost poem spring to my mind:

The Road Not Taken

........two roads diverged in a wood, and I

I took the road less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference

Maybe the road I didn't plan to take will actually be the better journey.
