It’s the first Monday of Year 2022.
Anyone experiencing a holiday hangover? (Although it seemed like the usual weekend for some).
I started the day right – took a warm bath, had my morning meditation, ate my breakfast and started my “to do’s” for the day.
While working on my tasks, I received a message from a college friend whom I haven’t seen for a decade. He was already on his way to pick me up. Earlier, he asked me to give him a tour of our place.
I was thinking of postponing meeting him but then I realized that things have become uncertain lately. So I accepted his invitation. Hmmmmm.
When we reached our first destination, we had to walk because the nearest parking lot was full.
At first, I didn’t notice that he was limping because I walked a few steps ahead of him when sidewalk restricted movement.
However, when we were about to go to our next destination, that’s the only time I noticed him having difficulty in walking down the stairs.
OMG! What happened to you?, I asked.
“I jogged the other day and when I woke up, this was what I’ve got”, he answered.
He engaged in sports like basketball when we were in college.
To my mind, maybe, just maybe, the pandemic restricted movement which was not so favorable for bodies young and old, like ours. Hahaha, we’re now in our 30s.
Because of his condition, we walked into a restaurant. More for the talk, not for the walk.
We stayed in a picnic hut, enjoyed catching up and felt the cold breeze while waiting for our turn to be served.
Then I handed him my on-the-go OLEIA Oil Peppermint from my bag to be applied on his painful thighs and legs before going to sleep.
At last! There’s an available table for us so we went inside the restaurant and talked about life.
It was indeed a joyful day reconnecting with a friend and sharing OLEIA’s advocacy.
The following day, I checked on him and he said that the pain had lessened.
Oooops!!! I forgot to tell him that it is recommended to apply it on the affected area 3-5 times a day.
Sharing OLEIA oil to family and friends is a sign of caring for them. :). Yes, you read it right,
caring for them.
