Breakthroughs; a fever and the like

Thursday, March 11, 2010

Wrote up a long post about all the stress, frustration and emotions that have overwhelmed this past week. Read over it and realized how silly I was being. Yes this last week have been hard. Yes Hubby has been sick with a fever for the past five days, causing him to miss three days of work when he has yet to build up any sick days. Yes he has to go to work today no matter what. But he's still alive, and yesterday his fever finally broke. He will get better.

Yes I have terrible sinus pressure and many things going on that I'm struggling to catch up with. But I'm still alive too. I have yet to catch Hubby's illness so I can continue to take care of him. The pressure will go away, things will get done and crossed off the list. Worries will be soothed.

It's all about perspective isn't it. I had a teacher who used to say, "Don't take yourself too seriously." I absolutely hated when he said that. I didn't understand then but I understand now. It was one of the best pieces of advise I've ever gotten. This one I just got on a piece of chocolate (yes chocolate for breakfast!) is good too, "Remind yourself that it's okay not to be perfect."

Life is good. Hard sometimes, but still very very good.

I know exactly what you mean, I think I take myself too seriously a lot and I wish I could stop. LOL Maybe one day I will, but hopefully that will be sooner rather than later as I do want to enjoy life.

I hope your hubby feels better and that you don't catch the icky germs.

Katie,

Isn't it such a relief when we have those breakthrough moments of putting it all into perspective? I have you have a much better day today!

Love this perspective! I try to laugh at life, especially on my blog. If we took ourselves too seriously life might REALLY be hard!
