Sometimes you really have to listen to what your body is saying, and give yourself a break…
Over the weekend, i was down with really bad colds, cough and on-off fever. I tried to fight it — even watched my son’s baseball game Saturday morning– but, well, when you’re weak, you’re weak. I left the baseball game early and decided to rest — in front of the tv. I must be really sick because there was a Criminal Minds marathon showing and i kept dozing off in the middle of an episode. And to think that it’s one of my favorite shows!
I ended up sleeping practically the whole afternoon. My body has long been craving for undisturbed sleep and I had to give it just that.
I am feeling much better now. Still having some sniffles, and coughing fits every now and then, but i am up and about. Sometimes we just have to let nature — or in this case, the virus — run its course.
When you can’t fight anymore, stop for a while. Recharge. No use trudging and not getting anywhere. Sometimes, rest is good.
Now i feel like a new person.
It’s good to be back.
