It’s Friday! Hooray! Boy am I ready.
I spent most of my day yesterday in a hospital ER. Not what I planned, to say the least. Please don’t worry, it was something minor, but also something that required medical intervention. For as granola as I can be sometimes, never wanting to take medicine and looking for natural remedies, etc — I am forever grateful that for doctors and nurses who help people with acute problems day in and day out!
Anyway, looking around the ER waiting room just reminded me that the amount of time I spend thinking about and working toward the idea of being the “Healthiest + Best Version of Myself” is really quite a privilege. I probably need to spend more time appreciating what a gift that flexibility is and spend less time feeling frustrated that my pants were ONE SIZE SMALLER last year, or fretting that I can’t quite figure out how many carbohydrates are the “optimal” amount for me to eat. SHEESH.
So — WOW — didn’t mean to be a downer, just wanted to share a little perspective that the Universe smacked me over the head with yesterday. To make up for it though, how about some fun links?
