Well, that is the victim mentality. I know. I am great at it! I am just coming out of one of those episodes. I have been working very hard, traveling which is no piece of cake, not sleeping well, and I have to admit, not eating well. I have allowed the stress of it all to get to me. I have not done the first exercise because I will tell you straight out, I’m too tired, I’ll do it tomorrow. Whoa is me. See what I mean, I had once again become the victim of a life style that I got caught up in.
I forgot to “stop and smell the roses.” Better said for my case, I forgot to be me. I worked so hard at working hard, I allowed my immune system to weaken and I have had a very bad head cold. No fun! Thank goodness for Kleenex and a good friend to point out what I had allowed myself to get into…an emotional suss-pool that led to an immune break-down.
After I finished wallowing in my emotional pity party with my stuffed-up head with a nose that ran 55 miles per hour, I realized that I had forgotten about some of the things I love doing the most. Things like writing little articles for this site. I love educating the public. So I am back!!
One good thing from this episode is that it made me realize how great it feels not to be down and sick. It reminded me of the reason I love writing my little articles, so that I can help others. Yes, I just mentioned how it hurts me sometimes when I do not feel appreciated when I work so hard, but I have to remember all the ones who do show their appreciation. I also have to remember that some people just do not know how to say thank you but they may still feel it.
I am bearing my heart because I know there are some of you that feel the same way. It’s ok to have these feelings but it’s not ok to keep them tucked inside. We have a tough enough time in today’s world to keep our immune system at it’s best. We need to lighten up on ourselves and work at becoming happier.
Winter is coming. I am preparing research to write about possible ways to stay on top of things to keep our immune system healthy. I do not want the flu or another cold or any sickness to come my way again. If it does however, I want my immune system to attack it before I realized it was there.
Thank you for hanging in there with me!!
