I’m not exactly feeling miserable, but neither am I filled with the joys of Spring today. I’ve been ill since last night and I’ve spent much of the day in bed sleeping. Which is a good thing, as sleep promotes healing, but, as for finding my reason to feel glad/happy/joyful today, it doesn’t really give me much to go on.
My trusty laptop and I are now encamped on the sofa. Me in my pjs and dressing gown – before you think I’m a total slob, let me add that having a shower and changing into clean pyjamas this morning has been the main event of my day – and my laptop providing me with my reason for today’s post.
Day 73, Reason 73: Today I’m truly thankful for all the great blogs and bloggers I’ve discovered through The Pollyanna Plan.
Before I started The Pollyanna Plan, I hadn’t the first clue about blogging (not that I know much more now) and neither had I read any blogs. I might have come across the odd post or two by chance, but I certainly have never followed a blog on a regular basis.
This afternoon after rising from my bed, I sleepily logged into my account to find out what has been going on in blogosphere over the past 24 hours and, before I knew it, I had been swept away into other people’s worlds. I’ve read posts that have inspired me, motivated me, informed me, made me smile, laugh, even cry.
I’ve also been researching recipes and ideas for the diet I am now following since discovering I’m intolerant to practically every food known to man – ok, slight exaggeration, but that’s what it feels like at the moment.
To be honest, I’m having a hard time with the new diet (particularly as I’m feeling really ill,) but coming across blogs dedicated to gluten/grain/egg/dairy free cooking has cheered me up immensely and given me some great alternatives. I can’t wait to feel better so I can roll up my sleeves and give cooking/baking another go. Who’d have thought, I’d ever say that!?
So a big thank you to you all for your words, thoughts, poetry, ideas, humour and inspiration and for allowing me into your worlds. I am very grateful to you.
