Today is the Day!
I’ve started my day off by sitting on my back porch. I love to listen to the birds and be a witness to the sun coming up and seeing the flowers clearly for the first time that morning. I missed coming out here the last two days, because it was too cold to sit out here. Bundled up in my longest, warmest winter coat and I have learned that it isn’t too cold. Though I must admit that I’m already making plans to wrap myself in one of my mama’s beautiful quilts and wear gloves in addition to the coat tomorrow if the weather is still cold.
I wrote the first paragraph early this morning, before I went off to work. I expected to have an awesome day and be able to beam positive energy as I normally do. Sigh, best laid plans and all that… I had an 8:20 doctor’s appointment and since it was so early, I thought I would actually have a shot at getting to work at a reasonable time. Nope, between waiting for a long while just to be seen and the super low (49) blood sugar test result, I was kept there most of the morning.
I finally got to work and thought; now my day is back on track. Not so much. I ended up leaving work after two and half hours, because human bodies are just not designed to have severe blood sugar swings as the ones I was experiencing. Usually, I just suck it up and push myself to keep going until the end of the day. Today, I decided to be nice to myself. I went home and took a three-hour nap.
That did it, now I’m back on my path of being a radiant positive force for good. I fixed a fruit salad and tuna salad for supper tonight. I had six different fruits, chopped up: apple, pear, (a fruit that is a cross between an orange and a tangerine – forgot its name), mango, strawberries, and white grapes. It was so good! I also diced up a bunch of different veggies to go in my salad: cauliflower, cucumber, tomato, celery, radish, green pepper, and yellow pepper. What an excellent meal. I like to chop and dice fruits and veggies; it makes it look like you are eating more than you are.
The lesson I learned today, sometimes it isn’t about pushing yourself to keep going; sometimes it is about taking care of yourself so you can keep going. I’m no longer singing the blues; no I’m singing a song from a Disney movie “South of the South.”
“Zippity doo dah, Zippity yay,
My oh my what a wonderful day
Plenty of sunshine coming my way,
Zippity doo dah, Zippity yay.”
Life is good! God is great! All is right in my world.
Flowers from my backyard. I took the photographs April 24th 2012 just after dawn so the dew is still on the petals.
