No more sick!

So I have finally been able to rejoin the land of the living. You never fully appreciate being well until you are not. You know how people say, "cheer up, at least you have your health!" Boy, is that ever true! Take a minute to really let that sink in, because we take so many things for granted, and our vitality is definetly one of them! So long story short, I was super fluish sick for almost the last 3 weeks; sore throat, no energy, not able to do anything at all hardly, not being able to enjoy life. Now I'm finally beating it and feeling better. Now, I'm in no way happy that I was sick...well not exactly. The funny thing is I'm grateful for it because I think it improved my resolve to really work on my health even more than I was before;eating even better, working out more. I am excited to be going for a morning run tomorrow, and me and the bestie are going to try to tackle the grouse grind sometime this week. Plus, I guess it doesn't hurt that spring has finally come, and it is gorgeous outside. Time to throw off the winter jacket and get the tanning lotion ready! I do feel, in so many ways, that I am coming back to life.

nice things to think about

So, just a quick little blurb about something nice I thought of yesterday. I've been battling a cold the last couple days, which means I've been holed up in my bed at home, tired and achey with a sore throat. Well the fluish symptoms broke yesterday afternoon, and I had enough energy to get up and out of the house for a bit. It wasn't too chilly, and I took the pup with me for a saunter around downtown. Just being out and about, seeing all the people around, I began to feel better. There was this guy passing by me, a couple years older, and he was happily carrying a large bouquet of flowers. I started to smile, thinking of how nice it was to see kind people doing nice things for others. I wondered who he was bringing them to; his mom, a girlfriend, hell, maybe even a boyfriend! Sometimes just being reminded of the simple joys in life makes us remember why we are here!
