I woke up this morning hair before 6 am, and I felt normal. Not sniffly or feverish or sore or tired or 100 other things I’ve felt intensely over the past week. I think I might finally be on the mend from the flu, and from its evil sister that occupied me from Thanksgiving to mid-December. In this moment, I vow never to take good health for granted again.
I’m sitting here writing my blog, drinking a cup of coffee (which wasn’t possible last week because my stomach took a holiday from both coffee and food) and everything feels so normal, so full of possibilities. I’m kind of sad I have to work today, because I don’t really feel like I got any restful or fun vacation time.
I’ll try to impress you with more philosophical ruminations later in the week, when my brain has also returned to full wellness. However, today I am simply happy to be a marginally healthy and operating human. Now, onto spin class (which I am certain will humble me).
