Staying Upbeat

Thursday, June 30, 2011

After a real upbeat day yesterday (I got the dream job!), this morning I woke up with a major migraine, and felt awful all day long. Thank goodness my new job involves working part-time hours at home! I managed to get the little bit of work done that I needed to do, but never got any errands done. I just kind of laid low, and never did even get any kind of workout in. However, due to my queasiness most of the day, I didn't eat a whole lot, and stuck with pretty healthy, bland stuff.

It was hard to make myself get out the door to go to choir practice, but that turns out to have been the best thing I could have done! I was able to focus on the music and the worship, and stop thinking about how I felt. And by the time we were done, I realized I was feeling better! So I guess that's the answer for when you're feeling down -- go sing! And if your singing is worship directed to the God who loves you, all the better! And let's see -- I was working out my lungs, so that counts as exercise, right? LOL!

"Oh, sing to the Lord a new song! Sing to the Lord, all the earth." Psalm 96:1

    Sorry to hear that you were feeling so puny yesterday, Karen! Hope today is a much better day for you.

You know, I used to sing all the time, and I was nice and thin. Now, I hardly ever sing, and...hmmmm....maybe there's something to your "singing counts as exercise" theory...?
