Hi beautiful people! What I want to share with you right now is kinda gross so buckle up. As gross as it might be, I think it’s important and I just have to tell you. I’m all about sharing with you because I love you. So here goes. Five days ago, I got hit by malaria and it was so not cool. Was so weak, feverish, plus I had tons of drugs to take and I hate drugs! Now whenever I’m down in health like that, water and all other liquid stuff become enemies. I don’t know the factual reason but here’s what I think. I take water, I feel worse. All mushy inside and then I throw-up. Gosh, I hate throwing-up. It’s sickening and hello, someone’s sick already so why make it worse. Asides using water to take my drugs, you won’t catch me with a bottle.
Now that is just the good side. Bad side is, no water, no waste removal, if you know what I mean. So what I’m saying is for four days, had a little difficulty in that area. I should tell you though that the only time I can go three or four days without visiting the potty is if I’m in a new environment and I don’t like their convenience. There’s this weird but quite comfortable understanding my body has with my mind and whatever else that keeps me going without having to visit the convenience until I’m back home or back to a more appealing environ. Now I’m smiling because it’s funny but very true.
Back to my health, one of the first signs I’m better is my ability to take in fluids without that sick feeling in my stomach. By day four, I was getting there. By day five, I was so there. First thing I did in the morning? You guessed right, I drank a full glass of water and no, I did NOT throw up. What I did however is, I visited the potty and it sure felt good. So there I was sitting and thinking how many sick people in the hospitals can’t get up and do what I’m doing right now. Some people are so weak on their sick beds that they need help to sit up, how much more going to the potty. Maybe they can drink as much water as they want, but they can’t get up, they can’t move, I can and so can you.
You may be wondering what I’m driving at. Answer this for me. What is bothering you so much right now that you fail to be grateful for your life? What is that thing you need so bad you feel your life is probably in the worst shape? A lot of the time, we fail to be grateful for what we do have and can do. We fail to see that there’s always so much to be grateful for. Look around you. You can read this post. There are more blind people than anyone can count. Some have never seen the clouds but you have. Some people cannot move about but you can. Some can’t read but you can. Some people have different sizes of tubes running through parts of their body to help them get rid of waste or get the air you breathe in freely. You and I should be more grateful.
So when you wake up in the morning, be grateful you’re up.
When you visit the potty, on your own, be grateful.
As you move around your home, be grateful.
When you step outside your home, be grateful.
As you go about your business today, do wear the most beautiful smile you have knowing you have it good.
Some people have it bad, some have it worse, they still manage to be grateful for it but you, you have your life all good.
Be grateful for it.
