I woke up this morning with a touch of the stomach flu. Just enough to make me feel yucky, and to prevent me from accomplishing things.
I was crabby, because what I really needed to be doing was cleaning up after our riotous weekend. Not sitting on the couch in my PJs.
Then I remembered my one-word New Year’s Resolution. ENJOY. To quote myself “I will choose to do the things that I enjoy. And, since that is not always possible, I will choose to enjoy the things that I must do.”
So what did I do? I put on a cozy robe, made myself some chicken noodle soup, put it in a cute mug, and sat down in the rocking chair. If I’m gonna be sick, I might as well do my best to enjoy it, right?
It worked, by the way. I feel much better.
