Soooo. I feel I have sooooooo soo much to tell you. And not much has even happened the past couple of weeks. But before all that- I just want to update on you on what's been going on with me! And then YOU can post in the comments below, what's been going on with YOU :) SO I can know about your updates!
First off. I am in the last days of being sick. WHEW! Praise the Lawd! I usually get sick for about a day- then it goes away. Not sure what my immune system was thinking this time. But it was not fighting off this thing. Sadly :( But oh well. It happened. That was that. I am back catching up on my life now. I feel like I just woke up after a whole week. I don't even feel like this past week happened. I had been in my house every single day. Coughing my lungs out :( And it sucked really badly. I had soooo much plans. I was so excited to get back to work, go to auditions, get back to working out. etc etc. HOWEVER. I think sometimes these things happen. Well, I know. For myself, actually. Not think. That this happens to wake us up. Because obviously our bodies are telling us the way we are living is NOT okay. You get sick because your life is not working out in the right way, whether depressed, or just not eating right, drinking too much, drugs, etc. These all can make you sick. Because your not happy. Truly happy. The main thing that keeps people well is if their happy & healthy. Both go hand and hand. I honestly hadn't been treating myself the way I deserve. I was staying up very late. Not working out daily. And eating too much or drinking too much. I was still on holiday mode. And for me to even say that annoys me. "Holiday Mode' what do I even mean by that. I understand for the holidays we eat a bit too much, drink more than normal. But only at those 2 events. Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Or at least, thats how I think it should be. My over indulging continued throughout the holiday season onto my birthday. Until it all ended. On my birthday. Funny how that works out. I wake up, in Big Bear on our trip. On my birthday, feeling like crap. Couldn't swallow- felt horrible. That was my wake up call. My body finally decided to show me that this cannot continue.
-And I totally get it. I'm actually thankful. I have never been so happy to not be sick and be healthy and be able to go outside and workout. And breathe. Swallow and it not hurt. Enjoy cold beverages (smoothies & ice lattes, no margaritas here! :/) I mean seriously. What a great reminder. I feel so rejuvenated right now. SO thankful to not be sick anymore. I was very annoyed with myself at even getting to that point but oh well. Nothing makes up for the respect I have now for feeling good. And understanding what we have to do to take care of ourselves to not let it happen again. I understand somethings are inevitable, but not the ability our immune system has to fight things off. And I'm not even sure mine was working. I had mashed it to the ground from the way I was previously living. No mos. No mos.
I am telling you this story- because I want to inspire you. I want you to understand not everyone, even when you think they do- not everyone has it together. There is always something going on with someone. Something we have no idea. I am still working on myself everyday. All the battles I have to overcome. All the ones ahead. But by working out/eating healthy. Being creative. I'm making myself stronger for those experiences to come.
Here is some photos of my trip in Big Bear. Regardless of the 2nd day getting sick. The first was very fun. And seeing that beautiful big ole lake was AMAZING. Amazing. So beautiful.
I hope ya'll have a great day! :) I'll be posting much more from now on :)
