I am typing with my left hand. I'm right handed but my right is currently on a week off for healing. It seems I suffer carpal tunnel syndrome and I've been abusing my wrist nerves for too long. Now they are protesting in a way I can't possibly keep ignoring because the constant pain impairs my creative activities.
The recommendation was to stop working for a week. Rest the wrist, use a splint, etc. I have been working on a project for the last 10 days and it has been ages since the last time I've been this passionate about something. The idea to interrupt my momentum didn't trill me. Quite the opposite. Yet, the pain was already bad and I knew I would only regret being stubborn about it.
So using my right is not right and all I have left is my left. I was bummed at first. When your dominant hand is impaired, you feel like you have no hands at all because the other one is so clumsy. Then I remembered I read somewhere that an excellent exercise for brain and memory was to use your non-dominant hand to do daily activities like brushing your teeth and dressing and such. Of course dragons don't wear clothes but I do brush my teeth and hair. I also read that sketching with your non-dominant hand was excellent for creativity and improve your skills overall. I started to get excited about the whole situation. It was not too bad. It was an opportunity to get the best out of the other parts of my body! Yes, it would be difficult at first but after all, I did have two hands. There was no reason why one had to be the "skillful" one and the other the "dummy" one, aside from habit. If I could make my left as skillful as my right, it would just push my frontiers further away and make my world broader.
You may think it silly but I actually told my left hand "I don't believe you are dumb. You can do what I want you to do. We'll make it happen and I'll be just amazing". Yes, dragon ego flashing here. It's in my nature. Anyways, this is not the first time I am left with my left only. It is the first time I have achieved to make it work ALMOST right so fast. I think the secret is in the brain (like everything else.) Once you are willing to believe you can make your body work for you instead of against you, amazing things will happen. After all, light starts there all the time.
