I've never considered myself a person who gets sick often. I've always felt healthy and vibrant, and still do to some degree. But since becoming a parent, I've come down with colds more often than ever. I suppose it's all the bugs my little boy's hands touch and carry home throughout the days. Perhaps it's because of the lack of sleep I now get since becoming a mother. I don't know. But I'm tired of it. I'm particularly tired of this darn cold that I've had for what feels like over a month now.
Today I'm trying a new strategy, to just ignore it. Get out of bed, get dressed, open my curtains, clean my house!, prepare some foods. Maybe even do my hair, something I haven't done for weeks now. Go about my day, run errands, and just hope it goes away. I do believe in the power of the mind, and I believe a positive attitude can do great things.
Wish me luck today in finally overcoming this obnoxious flu.
