For the past seven days I have fought against a virus of some kind. It kept me out of the office, out of the gym, and out of my krav maga academy. It held me prisoner in my own apartment. That is how I felt, at least until today. I still haven’t fully recovered or gone to any of the sacred places I listed above. However, I went out to lunch with family and friends, performed a few sets of pushups and pullups (on my door frame), and am writing this post!
During this week, which seemed to last an eternity, I had plenty of time to sit and think. Something I consider invaluable when healthy (and busy). All I did was nap and watch Breaking Bad (until I finished it; then more naps, of course). I was not angry or miserable, though a bit frustrated at first. Just mentally clouded and physically exhausted. I believe in fate and accept my current circumstances. These things happen, and I am thankful it happened during a relatively uneventful week.
And now that I am on the way back up, I am super-excited to get going: creating solutions at work, hitting PR’s (personal records) in the gym, improving my krav skills, etc. I am going to crush it like never before.Seriously. Better than ever. Why? Being sick and abstaining from my regular activities showed me how awesome everything I get to do everyday really is. It was eye-opening. I will appreciate these things that I have taken for granted.
