Sounds completely ridiculous, right? But believe it or not, I’ve accomplished more in the last three weeks of being hospitalized and getting an 8 week old puppy than I have in the last few months! How did I do it? Well, I thought I would share some key points here because I feel in this current age of faster and faster and everyone appearing to want everything done yesterday, the points are probably going to hit home to a lot of people.
Firstly, listen to your body! Now I haven’t had Pneumonia for nearly 10 years but when it happens it is smackdown! There really isn’t much you either have the desire to do nor the energy. So what did I do for the fortnight I was laid up I hear you ask? Well, besides re-scheduling and/or cancelling a bunch of appointments and initially feeling very sorry for myself, I actually sat down and put together my goals and then a plan for the next 12 months. Now I know with all of the so-called “busyness” of life these days, I would never have got that done had I not been laid up. And I am so incredibly grateful that I was! The amount of fun I had doing it, which in turn put my entire biochemistry into such a positive and uplifting energy vibration that then healed me, was just amazing. Within days of completing my goals for 12 months, 6 months, 3 months, this month and next month – I was back to normal. Coincidence you say? Well, maybe. But learn to listen to your body – sometimes it is purely and simply telling you to stop and take a break. And sometimes those messages are louder than others – mine was a brick!
Since then, I’ve put into place weekly and daily goals. Which, unbelievably, I’ve managed to accomplish fairly easily and effortlessly. Before I became ill I surrounded myself with lists. I really am a list kind of gal. But the lists never really had a deadline attached to them. The power of seeing a date and “Weekly Goals” at the top of the sheet really sent my sub-conscious mind a very clear message – that this stuff was just going to get done no matter what. And for some strange and unknown reason, I’ve started seeing things differently. For instance, not spending so long going through e-mails. And I’ve become much more decisive on what I read and give energy to. I’ve become more energized in the sense that when a task needs to be completed – I just keep going until it’s done. It really has been an epiphany that I just cannot fully explain.
