Wheeewwww chile! What. A. Journey. The last few weeks have been...wow... So incredibly grateful to be SLOWLY (emphasis on slowly) finding my way back to normal since my bout with COVID. Everyday is an adventure but I don't take any of it for granted. I'm still extremely fatigued and occasionally short of breath, I hurt all over, my brain is intermittently foggy, my vision is off, my anxiety is on TEN but "Dear God I'm here!" I'm back at work, L is back in ABA therapy, trying to get my house back in order...sweet Lord. I made up in my mind though that I HAD get some sense of normalcy. For me, that can mean the little things. I finally felt well enough to make my bed and wildly enough, that made my heart so happy. Just to see some order was a balm to this girl's heart! I've also gotten back into my beloved meal prep and I'm even easing back into my workouts. I get overwhelmed, I get discouraged but I've promised myself to be intentional about changing my way of thinking- choosing positivity.
I've learned that simply choosing joy can be quite a blessing. Now don't get me wrong, that doesn't mean you don't allow yourself to be human but take the time to see the blessings. Take the time to be thankful for the little things. Take the time to smile.
Finding my way back, bit by bit.
