#MondayMusings : Of sickness and health #Writebravely #WriteTribeProblogger
I don’t know how to start writing this because though it has been around 25 days since my previous post, I feel like a newbie blogger again! September did that to me. Though it began well, the good in September lasted just a few days and then turned out to be a mess! September gave me a new first- that of being hospitalized!
Though I once had a dream of becoming a doctor, I’ve always had an aversion to visiting hospitals. I often fall ill despite the many precautions I take. A lot of times when I was ill, I’ve put off going to the doctor because I do not like going to the hospital. So imagine my plight when I had to stay in the hospital for a few days! It was even more difficult to not have mum around. I know I’m grown up now but you need mom’s magic when you are sick. But this time mom wasn’t just away from me, she was sick herself! I did slowly recover, but I felt weak- not just physically but emotionally as well.
I don’t know if it was the illness or something else, I kept looking at all the lows of my life. Negative thoughts kept flooding my mind. I wasn’t able to do any of the things that I liked to do. Everything seemed to be going the wrong way. Every tiny thing that did not go right made me sad. When I think about it, I don’t know what happened to me!
I am feeling a lot better now. But all of this makes me think, if there is a pattern to how things work in life. When something goes wrong, is it natural to only look at the things going wrong? Do bad times remind us of all the failures that we’ve had? Though I am generally an optimistic person, it took me a while to get out of this! Not being able to do what I like to do hurt me the most and hence I decided to push myself to do things that I like to do.
Do you also observe such a pattern in your life – all bad things coming together or is it just the way we look at things? Please let me know!
I am taking part in The Write Tribe Problogger October 2017 Blogging Challenge
