1/9/13 What I Choose To Celebrate Today (Working Through The Pain)

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

I woke up with a headache, worked all day with it (at both jobs) and then did my workout ... Most of it. I did my 35 minute cardio, a ten minute break in the massage chair, then started the circuit but stopped at the third station because I had a small asthma attack. I managed to get to my inhaler and decided that my body was sending me some strong signals.

I celebrate that I worked through this mild headache until I couldn't anymore. The old me would have used the headache as an excuse to stay home from work in bed. The old me would not have gone o the gym. The emerging me recognizes that you need to work through these challenges. I can function, it's just pain.

It is ok to shower and go to bed early and get the rest I need. Nobody needs me for anything, and my physical and sparking needs have been met for the day.

Good night my fellow sparklers!
