Today has been a day of feeling very rubbishy indeed!
I won’t bore you with my long list of troublesome symptoms, other than to say I had to go straight back to bed after breakfast this morning and I’ve remained there ever since. I wish I could tell you that I’d been sleeping all day, but I was even denied that little luxury.
In the past, I’ve had to spend more than my fair share of days in bed like this. Some people say “Oh lucky you! I wish I could stay in bed all day.” But, there’s a world of difference between having a lazy, lounging day and being confined to bed through illness and an inability to stay vertical.
On days like this, I’d normally be inclined to feel wracked with guilt about being unable to do anything and being forced to waste yet another precious day of my life.
But here comes the good part – there is always one if you look hard enough…
Staying true to The Pollyanna Plan, instead, I have chosen to feel gratitude and appreciation today for the rest and recovery time my body has been getting.
Our bodies are really pretty amazing and have all these super healing powers that often go completely un-noticed (and for the most part, unappreciated) by us. Today, as I lay in bed with my eyes shut (it hurt too much to keep them open) I felt grateful that I had listened to what my body needed and rested accordingly and I gave thanks for the awesome healing job my body is doing.
I have now managed to upgrade to the sofa to write this post – Yippee! That’s already a big improvement from this morning and, as the D:Ream lyrics go, “Things can only get better!” 🙂
