It’s been a long and difficult week for me! As I look back on the week gone by, which brought me a lot of things that I was not particularly looking forward to, especially, the excruciating pain from migraine that I woke up to, on the morning of Friday, I can only express a huge gratitude to the Universe for finally granting me a day that is as close to “normal” as it can get.
I never seem to find the right words to aptly sum up how it feels to suffer from a severe migraine attack. Suffice to say, that the world feels and looks like a terrible place to be in. There isn’t a thing that can bring one absolutely any form of relief, as the struggle continues. But I can tell you, that when the horrid thing releases it’s claws on you, it almost feels like someone just drained every ounce of strength from your entire being, leaving you limp, powerless and empty! It feels as if you’ve been sick for days…as if every cell in your body has declared that it’s their time off, that they need rest.
So, finally, after a long week of struggling to get quality shut-eye, I did manage to get sound sleep last night and woke up this morning, feeling rejuvenated in the mind. It will be a while before I regain my physical strength and stamina though, but, I’m so relieved that it’s a Sunday and the school vacations are on and now, that the husband and son are away on a boys-only vacation, I am actually looking forward to the much-needed quiet time, my soul has been yearning for a while.
It’s time to devote my energies to all those creative things that I’ve been looking forward to, since the start of this year. The art materials will be brought out this week along with the gel pens and the sketch pad. From the corner of my eye, I can see that my #TBR pile is beckoning too. I’m definitely not adding anything new to the pile as I’ve yet to finish whatever is left before May arrives. Have to say, that even with all these really exciting things waiting for me, It’s rest and relaxation that are my top priorities this week, and I’m ensuring that nothing gets in the way for a quality down time, so that I can get my energy back and resume my strength training once again.
How was your week so far? What were the highlights of your week? And what are you looking forward to, this coming week? I’m all eager to listen to you share yours, so do drop your comments below and share with me how things have been for you lately.
