A good week and then a tooth falls out

Thursday, January 20, 2011

It's crazy how well a week can start. I feel this week is the beginning of everyhting. I went ot the gym on Tuesday night 9pm-10pm which was amazing. Did a great run and though I'm a little squeeky and need some work, I'm looking forward to doing that work. :-) Yesterday I went swimming which also made me so happy and tomorrow I will be going to the gym as well. Love feeling so active, I feel I can readily be prepared to run somewhere, ready to go up stairs and feel good.

A bit of bad news came my way this week though...I've been experiencing pain in my tooth for the last week and scheduled an appointment. I was convinced it would only be a filling and it turns out I have to get root canal treatment and a crown which mean...a whole new shiny fake tooth for me, at 21. Great. I go from feeling the most healthy young woman on earth to wounded and vulnerable. It's a very sad thing when things like this happen, I feel, because it is undeserved and simply unfair. My boyfriend has a terrible back problem and again, it's not his fault. These are challenges which stand in the way of us feeling and being the healthiest we can be.

But if we were to despair and to give up on our health altogether, it would be our own fault. And I don't want to get in the way of being a healthy human being. I want to be the healthiest I can be. And for the moment, that means me getting a fake tooth. So be it.

I promise that I will stay true to what I want and not despair and give up. There are always new days, always new beginnings. This week is one.

Hope you all agree that we should all go about our lives in a more positive way, more constructive and less self-destructive. A wonderful day to you all, be well. :-)
