Feeling Like Yourself

I don't know about you, but the worst part of being sick is not feeling like yourself. I've been feeling yucky since the big earthquake in Japan. At first, I thought it was due to the stress on my psyche from what happened, and maybe that is still what caused it, but I'm still sick. Today is the first day that I've actually felt like "myself" even if I'm not completely recovered from whatever I had... and I realized that it wasn't so much being sick that made me down, it was just that I didn't feel like ME.


Tomorrow is my birthday, and I've been looking forward to it for a couple weeks, and then I got all sick. My expectations shifted, as I really didn't feel that much like celebrating when my stomach was unhappy and my energy levels so low.... I was thinking that a non-birthday would be better, you know? But then when I actually searched my feelings (no, I didn't realize that Darth Vadar was my father!) but I realized that I really DO want to celebrate my birthday! Talk about mixed up... I sent the wrong messages to the Universe.


If I could just feel like MYSELF tomorrow, then I will be very happy! I heard it's going to snow (what? On March 23rd??) which is more like a Christmas wish coming true, ha ha! Just having energy and feeling all-around goodness in myself would be a treat of massive proportions. I have so much to be grateful for in my life! Generally, I'm healthy and happy, and I have people who care about me all over the place! My cats are healthy and happy, and my family is doing well. It's time to put all that in perspective! (When I'm sick, things get out of whack, including my perspective!) I'm a really lucky girl. Very lucky. I'm glad I remembered that before tomorrow! I will wake up tomorrow with a big old smile in my heart and on my face, knowing that I am leaping into another year of my life with a joyous soul...
