Yesterday I woke up on the wrong side of the bed, or at least I thought I did. It turns out, I was on the right side of the bed — my attitude was where it needed to be — but my body just wasn’t listening. There are times in life when our bodies fail us. They shut down. They need recovery. We must listen when our body is speaking to us.
What I like the most about a sore throat is that it reminds me of how great it feels not to have a sore throat. Moreover, on a 95 degree day in June, I want nothing but cup after cup of hot tea, and the tea that I happened to chose this morning as my staple for the day happens to have created my inspiration for the day. On my Yogi tea label reads the words I needed even more than the tea this morning: “bliss is a constant state of mind, undisturbed by gain or loss,” and in my case, undisturbed by health or sickness. I may not have my normal 100% energy today and my body may not be behaving the way I want it to, but I can say confidently that I still am having a good day.
I want to be the type of person who only has good days and great days. Will you be that person who sees bliss in every sore throat, joy in every inconvenience, and patience in yourself when you body is speaking to you?
