I spent New Years Eve in the ER, followed by a week of visiting the doctor's office having blood tests done and my white blood cell count monitored. It seems the Universe is testing my commitment to staying positive in the face of a unique health challenge. I'm no stranger to illness, but I sure did not expect 2017 to start with one first thing! So, obviously I need to take a different course of action this month than I had planned. What does that mean for the DS blog? Less blogging, unfortunately, which saddens me, because I simply love blogging! Luckily I've prepared a couple of posts before I got sick. I'll have to see what my energy levels will be like a few weeks from now.
Six years ago I'd been in this situation before (as my long time readers might remember) so thankfully I know how to navigate through it, however, in my case getting my health back is always easier said than done. I am what doctors call a paradox. What works for most seems to backfire with me.
No matter, I will take each day as it comes and view this as a temporary set back. I will keep focusing on the good and remind myself that I have so much to be grateful for. Right now I'm especially grateful for my husband's support. He's taken some time off work to help me even though I know his employer frowns on such a thing. I will do my best to eat healthy, get enough sleep and though I'm not allowed to exercise I can still exercise my mind. I will focus on my beautiful new shop (I really love my shop) and do my best to update my blog, including the popular Monday moodboards :) I had been so looking forward to attending the Creativeworld trade fair at the end of this month, but I'm not sure I'll be able to go. That really sucks. But life is much like an oak tree with branches twisting and turning and you can never fully predict which branch you are going to end up on. At this point I'm hoping, no trusting for a positive outcome. Thank you for reading this quite personal post and please bear with me while I get a handle on this (old) new situation.
