I wasn't raised to treat my body right. . .🙈
I still have to remind myself to brush my teeth at night 😬
I would love to continue eating doughnuts every morning, but I don't enjoy the yucky 'blah' feeling I get 🤮
I never used to get off of the couch after school, what was there to do Now I know that no butt is pretty if you sit on it all day 🍑
I never thought to look inside myself to be happy and always thought that friends/family were what happiness was, but true self-love is the greatest form of happiness 💕
No matter where you came from, how you were raised, or what you've been told, this is YOUR life and YOU are in complete control 👉🏻
You can either complain or change...make life worth it 🙌🏻
Today was hard.
I woke up feeling like I got an instant cold overnight. Sore throat, runny nose, congestion, headache, drowsiness - the works. No matter how much tea, hot lemon water, and cold medicine I had, it seemed to only get worse as the day went on. On top of this, my new found cold only made juggling deadlines for work that much harder.
I found a little light in the darkness after I was able to nap - waking up feeling better. Not 100%, but good enough that I thought I would go to the gym. I just wanted to walk on the treadmill, stretch, and sit in the sauna. I did make it to the gym. I was on the treadmill for 20 (long) minutes as I felt my cold coming back on stronger than before. I figured I’d go in the sauna to “sweat it out” until I realized I didn’t have my change of shoes (Sauna Rule 1: no gym shoes in the sauna, only sandals 🙄). No sauna for me.
I left the gym feeling worse than I have all day, and as I sit here and type this I’m drinking theraflu to try and ease my symptoms. All this on top of the fact that the past few days I haven’t been in a very good headspace.
This may seem minimal to some, and that’s okay - I know others out there are dealing with far greater difficulties than I am. I just want you to know that it’s okay to have off days. It’s okay to take a sick day. It’s okay to not feel like yourself. It’s okay to struggle. You are NOT alone.
Thank God for all of the good things you do have. Thank God for your life. May you find strength knowing he and others are there for you. Remember - you are NOT alone.
