Yesterday afternoon, I noticed some odd spots on my fave lil workout bud's belly (my furbaby, not my hubby btw 😉) so I took her straight to the vet, where she's been overnight having tests and being put on steroids. Her platelets were dangerously low so it was very lucky I took her in when I did, but thankfully at this stage it looks like she's stable and won't need a plasma transfusion.
This morning, after an emotional evening and restless sleep, waiting and worrying, my allergies were playing up (as they tend to do whenever I'm not fully rested) and all I wanted to do was go back to sleep and wait for the next update to come in. BUT...I'm learning the difference between when to rest and when to move my body. #myjourney
Last week, I knew my body was in pain and needed me to just chill. Right decision! This morning though, I knew it was emotional and that I have a full day of work ahead of me (that I love) including writing copy for emails, video scripts, sales pages and social media marketing. So if I sleep, ya know, for an extra hour or so, the result would most likely be worse. I'd be groggy, lethargic, my sinuses would still be sniffly and my energy would be low. And...I'd still be waiting for that call.
So, instead I chose to put on my awesome socks (thank you @leadlikeagirl
these are my “superhero cape” whenever I need a boost), spend 30 min on my X-trainer and listen to a playlist some of friends and I created together. It was SOOOOOOOOO the right choice! OMG! I loved listening to all the tunes everyone's put on there - it made me feel like they were there with me. My sinuses have cleared A LOT. I'm full of energy and feeling happy. I know I'm going to be much clearer for all my creative writing and I know I'm moving closer to the my long-term gains too. Win freaking win!! The call with the update will come through whenever it happens, and I'm choosing to focus on picturing our little Rosie coming home and being her usual awesome and snuggly self soon. 🐶 #youchoose
