waking up

I have been sick for the past month. Seriously.

I had a sinus infection followed by a sprained hand, and then two weeks ago I had a sudden crushing case of vertigo that turned out to be an ear virus. So for the past two weeks I have been a dizzy, nauseous mess. I haven't been able to drive or read or even watch tv!

Finally, I am getting over ear virus and am feeling better.

Not to jinx myself.

What have I learned? Where is the positivity? Well, I've had a cold every single month since last October. I think that was what finally morphed into the sinus infection. And seriously I think the colds were caused by stress. The sprained hand was a little devastating, but for about a week it taught me that I can live without tennis. And the biggest lesson has been from this ear virus. Even when I am sitting still I feel like I need to be productive. The ear virus really taught me how to be still. I think I still have a lot to learn about the art of being still, but I am on my way. And the ear virus really took my control away. I think that was a huge thing for me. It's definitely something I need to work on.

I am also tackling stress.

We'll see how it goes.

I'll leave you with a piece of the Sun. This piece really touched me.
