I spent least week mainly bed bound, and while it seemed to go super quickly and mostly in a haze, I did manage some time to do things that I love.
I was able to spend time just reading and taking in information without worrying if I was wasting my valuable time on something other than projects and I had some time to think about my business and where I really want to take it. And that got me thinking.
Was that part of what helped me to get better?
Honestly, I don’t know. But I think that maybe it was the right thing to do. My illness, like so many, is only made worse by stress and worrying. So just writing off the whole week on Monday allowed me to focus on getting better and not worrying about anything else.
I think when it comes to mindful living we can not only look at our spending and earning, we can look at our lives and how we live them from day to day.
I had a very productive week the week before I got sick and since reading one of the books have been inspired to really change things up and get things moving in the direction I want them to go.
Even just writing this surprises me a little bit. Over the last week I have realised how I have grown-up in the last year, and how things I once saw in a negative way, I can look past that now. I think this blog has done a lot for me in that sense.
I think that once we aren’t fighting such an uphill battle within ourselves about what we ‘should’ be doing and when, we can handle the tougher times better and just get through it.
What are your thoughts? Do you think that doing what you love helps you get through the tough times?
