Prompt: Thursday, January 9, 2014
A pressure point translates in Japanese to “tender spot.” What are your pressure points?

I must admit I had difficulty with this prompt. I even went to the NaBloPoMo site to see what others wrote, but no one had anything up yet!   With this prompt, it is easy to go in many different ways, so I decided to answer in different ways.

As far as the “tender spot,” I have tender spots for puppies, kittens, babies, and toddlers. (See what I mean about having a difficulty with this prompt?) 😉  I also have tender spots for people who are hurting, especially those who come into my life. I want to enfold them in my arms and help them heal.  Sometimes, that’s not a good thing to do, because in the end, these people will need to choose to help themselves.

As far as “pressure point,” how about the cure for headaches.  It’s in a “tender spot” between the thumb and index finger.  It really helps for me, because I really don’t like taking pain pills.  I feel that they do more harm than good, and it only solidified this idea for me when I was so sick and I had to use them.  I’ve included a link below if you want a pain pill-free relief from headaches.
