The Wake-Up Call

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!

    I am so happy because I am in a much better place than I was a year ago. Last year I was so anxious, stressed, and kept on getting sick or injured.
    It got so bad that I finally had to admit to myself that I do not deal with stress well at all and I needed to figure out what kind of outlets would help me get through the tense times.
    I started practicing yoga at the end of the year and this year I have been inspired to pursue my hobbies and interests from the past. This has been the best thing I could have done for myself and now I feel like I am living the phrase “too blessed to be stress.”
    I still get stressed and anxious and sometimes life is a little crazy, but I am learning how to manage that stress by breathing through it all and not taking everything so personally. It has also helped for me to surround myself with friends who uplift and inspire me and this includes all of you too!

    Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
