I am finally feeling better, not a 100% but the dreaded flu that took over my life over a week ago now seems to left. I want to say that I drank green smoothies, ate tons of healthy food, took great loving care of myself during this last week but no, I did not. I guess sleeping a lot and taking some time off work does count.
But let me tell you, when I get sick all of my healthy eating habits go right out the window. I want comfort food, starches and carbs to be exact. So needless to say, a week later, no working out, lying around a lot and eating a lot of heavy starchy food I feel a bit larger than life. Well, larger than I like for my taste. Considering that this was the stomach flu and I could not keep food down, the reality is I am not larger than life, I am the same as I was before the flu. But still the thoughts of not good enough roll around in my head.
So the big lesson from the last week? I still have a lot of work to do in the area of self-kindness, self- acceptance and self-giving. I have to learn to just allow myself to be human and sick. Yup, this life journey is a work in progress, and it seems a really big for me.
