I have been in bed for five days this week with a horrible bronchial infection so this update will be brief. I hope the rest of you are faring better with Week Two activities!
How many days this week did you do your Morning Pages?
Only five. I was too delirious with fever two of the days. (Although I can’t say the days I did manage to write were entirely coherent.)
Did you do your Artist’s Date this week?
No – my plans fell through entirely on account of being sick.
Did you get out on your Weekly Walk?
Yes, thankfully. As always, it fed my optimism and increased my perspective.
Any issues significant to you in your self-discovery this week?
I guess the main issue brought about by my illness was the intense guilt and discomfort I felt at “letting down” my audience by not checking in like I intended to. It was seriously more painful for me than the feverish days in bed and the hacking cough. I had so much to share and so many revelations I wanted to write about. But I simply couldn’t.
So what is the lesson here? One of self care? Of dedication? Of forgiveness? I haven’t quite figured that out yet. Perhaps when the DayQuil haze clears. In the meantime, I ask your forgiveness as I dedicate myself to self care. And Throat Coat tea.
