This entire week I have been sick, along with half of Knoxville. Schools and business have closed for illness. People are wearing masks to protect themselves. I should have done that. I have tried to stay positive this whole time. I know one day soon; hopefully in the next hour when meds kick in, I will be able to breath through my nose again. Until then, I'm not going to let this get me down. So, I thought I would share how I am trying to stay positive through all this and stay focus. Because all i want to do is shove a tissue up my nose and leave it there.
I'm sure everybody has heard this saying before, "Life is what you make it." That saying could not have been worded any better. If you do something that brings you joy it brings you happiness. In my case, I like to eat/cook. That makes me happy. Now, try to find away to do as a career is a different story, but I did. I found a way. It is my passion. The thing is, I tried something and did it. If someone sits around and mops all day and wishes something would happen, it might or might not happen. Instead of sitting around, go for it try doing something new. Be brave. Who knows you might actually enjoy it. Take a chance. You never know what could happen unless you try and take every opportunity.
Now for the ones that is sick like me, that doesn't feel like getting up and doing anything. This also goes for someone that might be stressed or worried over a situation. Every rain storm has a rainbow. No matter what your going through or how you feel there is hope. There is always light at the end of the tunnel, no matter how dark it may seem. Most of the time, things we are stressed over or worried about will be just a grain of sand in month or so after it is over. Then if you look back and think why did I stress so much over that. If you can look at it like this. If two months from now, is the way I feel or is the stress really going to matter? Is it going to change anything? It's just how I look at things. Hope all this helps.
