Have you ever had a tickle in your throat that would make you cough? The kind of cough that was hard to stop? The kind of cough that would throw a fit at the most inopportune time and throw you out of the room?
Or that feeling that there’s something in your eye? Maybe a speck of dust or a stye… You flush your eye out until it’s red then you rest your pretty little head. Hoping and dreaming that when morning comes that irritating speck will be a thing of the past and that irritating feeling just won’t last.
Recently I have had both the tickle in my throat and the speck in my eye. Last night I was convinced that I needed to cry.
Stayed home from school and visited the eye doctor and got some eye drops. It is time for me to pull out all the stops. I have spent enough time letting myself go. Now I need to better myself and thrive so I can grow.
Don’t ignore the tickles and the specks, small as they may seem. Clean eating and exercise make a winning team!
