Yes! Winter is finally here in Israel, and with it – SNOW!
This year I went a little overboard with excitement… here are the results.
Let’s be honest, nobody likes to be sick. Your nose is running, your’e nausious, stomach hurts, throat sore, head pounding and what not.
I myself as a major hypochonder, germophobic and generaly scared of being sick, HATE those times when i start feeling low and even worse, coming down with something.
But I have to admit it, being sick is an amazing time. First of all, it always happens when your pushing yourself too hard, or having a mental breakdown, or in a point in life you just can’t go on as you are. That’s what so amazing about the human body. He gives a fuck about you, and when he doesn’t like the way he’s being treated, he shuts down and demands your attention.
Right now I’m recovering from an evil cold I got last week, and getting sick was a huge wake up call for me.
Not that I didn’t know I was feeling like shit, but I was doing everything I could to get away from it. Clubbing almost everyday, not sleeping, not eating as good, and just running away from any alone time I might have. And to be frank? Getting that cold was a true blessing.
Finally I got some quality time with myself, I got to rest more than I could handle, and it really made an impact on me. I feel so much better now, having dealt with myself and seing that the monster is not so bad. I even made some new resolutions for myself such as taking better care of myself.. sleeping more, eating better, start what Ive been wanting to do forever now – Parkour! And of course, letting go of the past, try to get over my fears and move on to greater things.
Definitely happy I got this cold and was forced to slow down a bit.
What are your thoughts about being sick? Do you also use that time for new resolutions?
