It’s both relief and happiness that I got my sense of smell back and be able to smell the Roses again.
4 days of submission to sickness, helpless, unable to control anything except hang on to hope that my body together with modern medicine will win the fight for me.
Yesterday, I rejoiced that I can breathe well again. I’m sweating after two rounds of long walk at an outdoor field. It was a good sweat and not the kind when a fever is breaking down post anti-fever medication. I’m winning. My body is winning.
Entire morning, I felt great, lots of energy. Late afternoon, I easily doze off again for 2 hours which normally does not happen to me when I’m in my usual healthy invincible self . Past 5 days, I didn’t really care about being invincible anymore. It felt really amazing just to submit to deep sleep, rest and take care of my body for once. Total detachment from work. Something I have not done for so many years.
It took sickness for me to realize how important it is to just stop, sleep, really, really sleep so my body can fully heal and restore itself. It’s the ultimate Spa Wellness Vacation Collaboration I never had for 30 years. And this time, no guilt in requesting my long overdue 10 Days Sick Leave after working for 7 years with my Employers giving above 100% Patient Care that gave them countless “Very Satisfied” Customer Experience.
It took a virus for me to appreciate what’s it like to smell the Roses again. It took sickness for me to truly fall asleep deeply, rest my broken body, mind and heart. For that I am Thankful. God is good, always!
Wife and Son agreed, getting COVID wasn’t that bad. It gave us that much needed Stay-at-Home Family and Me Time for as long as we want. Next week, we are ready to face the world again like brand new people. This time, I’m shifting from invincible to visible. From no fear to being smart. I can’t afford being reckless again.
A beautiful, fun, relaxing weekend to all. Another perfect sunny day to smell the fresh Blooms of Summer. Yep, official Kick-Off of Summer Adventures begins Monday, May the 30th.
Stay safe, happy and healthy always. ♥️🙏
