After spending the past couple of months – since Christmas actually – suffering from various chest infections and weird bugs which seemed invulnerable to the horrible steroids and antibiotics my doc gave me…
…I spent a STUNNINGLY ENJOYABLE two hours yesterday wheelbarrowing half a ton of logs from the drive, through the garden and into the wood store without wheezing, coughing or feeling like I had the Black Death!
Yes, sad I know – pathetic absolutely, but there’s something very ZEN about enjoying the simple things in life.
Being incredibly stubborn I tried to do the same two months previously when slap in the middle of a chest infection and spent a day in bed afterwards. Sometimes you have to listen to your body rather than trying to ‘John Wayne’ through it all
Now I’m feeling like my old self again I’m realising two things:
1. I’m glad I have a business that I can strip down so I only need to work a couple of hours a day AND I can (literally) run from my sick bed.
2. You should never take your health for granted. Yeah we’ve all heard it and yet you take bugger all notice of it when you’re 23 and feel like a gladiator BUT life isn’t half as much fun if your health is shagged, and all the money or success in the world won’t change that.
I’m guilty of not even thinking about health most of the time until there’s something that forces me to.
Good to have a gentle nudge every now and then
I have to spend an hour this afternoon changing a tyre on our older car.
Can’t wait 🙂
