Day 118, Reason 118: Today I feel so grateful for the beautiful view from my workroom.
I’ve had many varied and interesting jobs in my life, but I’ve never worked anywhere with a view quite as stunning as this one.
I used to feel pretty down about not being well enough to have a job – I had to give up work 7.5 years ago when I became too ill. In fact, I’d go as far to say that I felt useless and worthless without a job, but now I see the situation very differently.
Ok, so I might not be earning much money…yet…but I work from home, doing something I enjoy, using my creativity and crafting skills and I can throw the french windows of my workroom open, let the sunshine filter through and gaze upon the glorious view. I think that makes me very lucky indeed!
Despite another terrible night’s sleep, I had a very productive morning finishing sorting out my workroom – I’ve recently converted it from a spare bedroom. Things were going really well and I was pleased with my progress, when I bent down to pick up something from the floor and two heavy bags rolled off the high shelf above my head and crashed down onto my neck. Owww! 😦
I’ve been in bed ever since, as I’m in a lot of pain and it hurts too much to be upright. I can’t even take painkillers, as they really affect my stomach badly. However, I have dragged myself to the sofa to write this post – apologies if it’s not very coherent.
I’m trying not to feel annoyed that this has happened, as (apart from the no sleeping) I’ve been doing a lot better health wise these past couple of days. Not really what I needed, but it could have been worse.
In the spirit of The Pollyanna Plan I shall continue to focus on the positive…and go and lie down again. 🙂
