So the doctor has confirmed I am NOT dying. That is good news. No walking pneumonia or anything serious. He said it is just lingering inflammation. Rest and fluids should kick it. So he basically put me on bedrest for today. And then when I told my manager she put me on bedrest for 2 days. Part of me does not want to do this, but I know not following orders is just going to exasperate things. But I am sneaking out to do this post (and maybe a little bit of easy no brainer work.)
I guess today’s
quote poetry goes along with this situation a bit. I’m having to admit that things will not fall apart without me for 2 days and my health is more important than finishing up a few work items. Seems pretty obvious, but at times it is hard to really live it.
So, now on to the challenge. Rules first:
- Thank the person who nominated you – Tales from the Mind of Kristian. Of you’ve not checked out the Ashcroft Chronicles yet, do it TODAY! Seriously!
- Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day!)
- Share why this quote appeals so much to you.
- Nominate 3 different bloggers for each day. Honestly, today I’m just exhausted and am going to let you each nominate yourself if you’d like to do this challenge.
This is one of the first Atticus poems that caught my eye. I feel like my life right now is all about identifying the false truths I’ve been living and trying to rewire my brain. Once again, this is one of the reasons I started blogging – to work through these things. I’ve started journaling about some of these too. Writing down the false truths and asking myself – Who told you that?
Who told me I had to be perfect – the perfect mom, perfect wife, perfect daughter, perfect career woman? Who told me I was a loser if I failed at things sometimes? Who told me my health and needs take second place to everything else?
What are some of the false truths you’ve been living?
