Today began with a lie in. It is the weekend after all and I have technically been working this week – it feels so good to say that! 🙂 Also, I had yet another bad night so needed the extra time in bed. I long to be able to sleep through the night – even staying asleep longer than 1 hour at a time would be a start. But, never mind, because when I did surface this morning, I was delighted to find that the clouds and rain that have hung heavy in the skies for weeks had vanished.
Day 72, Reason 72: Today I’m so happy that blue skies have returned.
Even though I felt pretty exhausted, it would have been a great waste not to venture out into the great outdoors to make the most of the glorious day. So, off we went to the beach for a walk – that’s me, my Mum and our 2 rescue dogs.
A cold wind was blowing, but it felt wonderful to feel the sun on my face and look up into the deep blue. There’s something about a vast, beautiful, blue sky that lifts my spirits, brings a smile to my face and speaks to my soul.
X marks the spot – or is is a kiss from the heavens?
Unfortunately, this afternoon I’m not feeling very well – feverish, shivery and groggy -and I had to return to bed for a few hours. I’m now curled up on the sofa having just watched my fix of Doctor Who for the week (it was another good one, in case you’re wondering!)
It’s all too tempting to want to feel down and fed up with this deterioration in my health, or to stress and worry about what could have caused it. But, I’m being strict with myself and focusing on the positive.
Like the return of blue skies today, I know that good health, wellbeing and happy days will soon return to me.
