Side benefit of being sick: Time for Retrospection

In Musings on January 13, 2012 at 13:35

Well rather than taking all this lying down and not doing anything, have decided to work with the team of specialists who are monitoring my case. Working on fight back hard and winning this war against this pesky little microorganism bug.

One little thing actually, being sick and trapped at home forces me to spend time with me, yes me. Had always been talking about taking a break from the rat race in order to know the person that I have grown to be. Since it has been forever since I had time type of time on my hands but it had always been just talk with no action. This episode gave me plenty of food for thought and really made me reevaluate my values, my directions and indeed my priorities in life. To really know who and what are good to have and what is really important in my life.

The lack of balance in my life in the the crazy pursuit of the rat race, to do better, climb higher and just be that much better at work has usurped much of my personal time and looking back, had I had taken more time out to smell the roses and enjoy the little detours that life had given me would I have enjoyed the journey more and focused less on the final destination? This time I promise myself that I will work towards a better work-life balance and I know it is possible to have it all. It just has to be managed better. More time to spend with friends, families and love ones. Less focus on the next rung on the ladder of success, I’m not going to stop climbing here and now but I’m just going to enjoy the journey more and take an easier pace. Looking back, I don’t know why I feel that I have not done well enough in my career but in reality I’m actually doing pretty okay for someone my age, I have a wonderful job that fulfills my need for wanderlust and that I love, a great team to work with and a loads of management support, what more could I ask for? Time to count my blessings gal!

If I need to totally change how I live, I’m going to do that. You are not going to get the best of me!!! I’m going to end up in better health that I’ve been in my life by the time I’m done with you. Working with the dietien and the renal specialist on meal planning and a whole battle plan with regards to meds/steroids/drug therapy, it is not going to be easy but I’m ready to take you on!

Once we get you under control, I will work on regaining my health! :p May lose a few battles along the way but I’m sure the war is mine to win. (Well at least, me and my team of specialists!!!) In your case pesky little microorganism bug, its the final destination that counts!!!
