It is amazing how sometimes the tiniest little things can be so powerful! Perhaps it's a smile from a stranger, a look from a loved one, a random act of kindness that someone did for you that simply made your day.
But today, for me, the very small but powerful thing that impacted my life was a stomach virus ... a tiny little organism that literally took over my body, took over my life and brought me down!
This morning I was literally on my way out the door to client appointments, followed by a board meeting, dinner with a friend and then a weekly discussion group I belong to. As I got ready, I was thinking about how busy I've been ... transitiioning from a very busy winter schedule and going full tilt right into my spring schedule. I haven't had much time to recover and regroup, never mind catch up on laundry and dust bunnies!
The thought no sooner cross ... WOW...
It was as if my subconscious mind read my mind and found an instant solution to my need for a break. In just a few minutes, I felt dizzy and went into a cold sweat. I felt a sharp pain in my belly looking for a way to exit but, not quite sure which way to go.
In between trips to the bathroom, I cancelled my clients, took a nap, did a little work on my website and got in some much needed snuggle time with my kitties. I'm feeling better now, but I think I'll listen to my body and take the rest of the day off.
Grateful for a virus? Yes, really! But just for today and just for this moment. I've got way too much going on tomorrow, so I think I'll rest up, take another nap and relax for the evening. The laundry and the dust bunnies will just have to wait!
So yes, I'm grateful for a virus today ... it gave me permission to snuggle with Leah and Sylvester! I think they're grateful too :)
