Last night, as I was lying in bed, my head still buzzing with my reason to feel glad/happy/joyful for the day, something significant occurred to me. I sat bolt upright, reached for my phone and typed out a quick note so I wouldn’t forget.
Here is what I wrote:
Not very eloquent, I admit, but I was exhausted last night and it captures perfectly the essence of my realisation.
For years I have been too unwell to dream of anything other than recovery. My focus was taken up with how dreadful I felt every single day and what action I was going to take next to try to regain my health and my life.
Even though I had dreamed of going to live in Australia when I first returned from my travels, I quickly shelved the idea, as my health rapidly deteriorated again. It wasn’t just that I couldn’t see how my dream was going to materialise, but it was as if the chronic illness drained the life out of my dreams.
But, as The Pollyanna Plan progresses and my health improves, if feels as if my dreams are awakening from a deep slumber.
Day 135, Reason 135: Today I am happy and grateful for the feeling that I am coming back to life in so many ways.
And I also have another very special reason to feel happy and grateful today. My dear friend’s Dad’s is recovering well from the serious surgery he had yesterday.
