Sweatpants Sunday

Sickness, Day 2.
D’ya ever start to think about how many tasks need completing in your life, take a look around, and…just lie down and nap instead?
Really, really wanted to accomplish something today. Too much to do this week, and not enough time to do it.

BUT.  Sometimes the better choice truly is to take a quiet break.  We can push ourselves pretty far, but to what end?  Life will resume tomorrow.  Over-exertion isn’t going to help anyone.  Especially if you further injure your body, at a time when it is meekly trying to return to full strength.

I view incapacitating illness as a time-consuming inconvenience.  I can handle feeling shitty (remember hangovers?); what I can’t handle is being confined to bed.  There is naught to do but deal, though.  Same as in early sobriety: you just want to be through it, and put as much time between you and your sickness as possible.  We don’t quite live in a world of instantaneous healing yet — hopefully in this lifetime those medical advances can become a reality, but until then, in sickness and in health:
One day at a time.
Time takes time.
Take it easy.
This too shall pass.
