I’ve been stuck at home for the last two days with this weird allergy/cold/sinus thing I get about twice a year. I always have the hardest time when I’m sick because I feel like it’s me against my body. I spend so much time trying to figure out how to feel at home in my body, when I don’t know what’s going on with it I panic a bit.
So today I challenged myself to practice a bit of acceptance and see where it would take me. I couldn’t do the photo shoots that I wanted to get done, but I was able to finish up some social media stuff I had been putting off. Nate and I couldn’t go to Ikea and return a couple things, but we did get to spend the day together snuggled on the sofa watching The Real Housewives of Atlanta. And as you can see from the pictures above, I got to enjoy the nice spring weather.
I use to get so angry when people would say “just do the best you can”, until I realized that the best you can do changes from day to day. Some days the best we can do is listen to our bodies and take it easy and not be too hard on ourselves.
It turns out, not trying to force myself into doing uncomfortable things made me much more open to still taking care of what I could. Gonna give myself a pat on the back for this day. Let’s all give ourselves a pat on the back for this day!
