I’m so happy to be back in the Land of the Living!
Although I don’t remember purchasing tickets, for the past couple of weeks, I’ve apparently been visiting The Dark Side, where my body took off on its own “Deciding Not to be Well” adventure – and from the looks of it, the ol’ physical presence chose a fairly comprehensive package.
While I really do respect its desire to paddle its own boat sometimes, I’d much rather we went on our journeys together, my body and I, and would much prefer that our adventures be on the “Happy, Joyous, and Free” cruiselines.
Taking care of myself is something I’ve not done well in the past. I don’t like not feeling good so I want it to pass quickly, as in, if I ignore that I don’t feel well, it might just go away. Things like fixing myself a cup of tea, lying down for a nap or resting, reading a book, and doing other quiet, mindful activities, are all things I’d rather do when I feel good. Just being okay with not writing a blog post for a few weeks was a tough one for me. I’m learning to take care of myself and let myself be sick. It’s my body’s way of saying something’s not in balance, something’s out of whack and it’s time to do something different. Like take care of myself.
I’ve been back from the “adventure” for a couple of days now and I have to say – it’s sure nice to be back amongst you all.
Glad to see you’re all still here!
PS. Enjoy this beautiful flower of summer – I sure did! It’s one of the things I did for myself during the time I didn’t feel well…
