What unlucky person gets their 5th cold of the year 2 weeks before Christmas but more importantly 3 days before a holiday? Oh wait, ME! I know I sound like a Moaning Mertle but my last cold lasted for 10 weeks, which only buggered off at the start of November…and now I’ve had another one attack my face.
So yes, I’m less than happy to say the least!
However, I’m trying to stay on the positive side because there are people out there who struggle to breathe everyday, not just when they have a pathetic cold. It’s times like these when I normally start to put things into perspective. Friends that have acted childish, deliveries of clothes that haven’t turned up, my weight which just won’t shift…how can I moan about these juvenile problems when there are people out their struggling for their lives right now?
I live with and am going to marry a paramedic so I often hear stories of people losing limbs, seconds of their lives and even their own children. It has really opened my eyes to being such a grumpy, moody soul and made me really try and appreciate everything in life, even down to silly things like being able to type this!
I want everyone reading this who has something on their mind, something bothering them, something that’s upsetting them to just take a step back and think of those people in hospital tonight, those people who are praying that someone makes it through, those people who will never be able to hear or see their children play again. Just think how fortunate you are to be breathing okay, to be happy and healthy.
That is all ❤
