This year has been the most sickly of years for me in like more than fifteen years. Seriously! The worst I’ve had are quick day trips to the hospital, injections and medicines that make me feel like dying, but then I usually get better. Not this time though. Not this year.
Of the four months already spent this year I can say I’ve shared it fairly between work and hospitals. Drugs suddenly became my friend (I hate drugs with passion, my throat always constrict even when I see a syrup). But this year has been the worst so far.
Right now I’m writing from my sick bed. But somehow, I’ve been able to focus mental energy to doing something I love, something I’d always do if I get the chance for free or for money it doesn’t really matter.
These pasts days especially as got me thinking about what I really want from life. True I want to be financially free, but now that I’m thinking of it I wonder at what cost do I want this money? With all the stress and daily wahala that’s causing me to break down every now and then I realise my wallet is still like onions that makes me cry each time I open it. Lol
But seriously, I just wonder why all the work has not yet paid off. Am I running the wrong race? Am I chasing after the wrong things.
When my doctor saw me last Friday his expression was like that of “You Again!” then he smiled and said you seem to enjoy staying here. Stress is killing you madam and you’re letting it. My head dropped, knowing somehow I have allowed my life to be about work only, like I live to work not work to live.
So I started researching how to reduce stress. I’ve reached out to someone who can help coach me out of this unhealthy lifestyle.
True, I’ve been eating healthy thinking that will keep me out of the clinic but it’s obviously more than that.
I hope as I explore the alternatives, while still chasing money. Lol, I’ll be healthy enough to share my experience on how I’ve been able to cope with stress, while building a meaningful life.
But in the mean time. Let me share my thoughts on money, life and good health with this quotes that represents my current state of mind. I hope this encourages you too to look inward and make positive adjustment (s) before its too late.
