Listen Without The Brick Wall
I’m still sick. I’ve not felt well the past few days and progressively felt worse. I put things off until today thinking I’d feel better and get everything done from the week. I’d also scheduled commitments for today as well. I woke up this morning and felt worse than I have all week plus I didn’t have a voice. No voice, barely a whisper. To make matters worse, the important commitments I had involved speaking appointments. I had planned a day full of things to do, however, my body had other plans. My body won.
I spent today taking care of myself. I had to step off the treadmill of my to do list and commitments, and allow the day to unfold without my participation and involvement. I take my commitments quite seriously. Once I make a commitment, rescheduling is a last resort for me. Too bad that it took getting so sick that I had to lose my voice with a high fever, and forced to physically take care of myself today to get my attention.
Next time I feel as though I’m getting sick, I won’t push myself. I’ll listen to my body rather than my Calendar and Task list on Outlook. Ever notice that sometimes it takes a brick wall falling in on you to get your attention? Next time, I’ll heed the little pebbles. No more brick walls for me!
All the best,
