If you happen to be a friend on Facebook. You know I've been under the weather for a month now. I've been blaming 'the flu shot', lots of holiday visitors, the general public, everything and everybody under the sun. Frankly, I don't know why I'm not a hundred percent.
Maybe it's the winter.
Maybe it's all in my head.
Maybe I simply just have to stop thinking about it.
It is certainly a malady I can't put my finger on. No, I don't need to go to a doctor, yes, I am taking my prescribed medications, and my daily vitamins.
No, I'm not getting enough sleep, but that's my fault, because I have learned I'm a night person and do my best thinking and can accomplish much more after 10PM than any other time of the day. During the day my mind is cluttered with everything I must do, I spend the mornings at work, so that I have to dash around in the afternoon trying to accomplish chores. Since I can only think and DO one thing at a time now I find I
a.) start a chore,
b.) get side tracked,
c.) walk into a room and find a job half done,
d.) complete that task,
e.) go back to the room from which I had come, and
f.) find a job half done there.
That, friends, is how my days go. Eventually I accomplish all the chores, and after watching three or four hours of evening TV I should toddle off to bed. But, at last my mind is clear of clutter, and I can really get some work done. My computer and I buzz and hum for hours. I pump out work a human possessed.
I've found my mind is so clear at night I can do my Lumosity challenges with lightening speed. My BPI has jumped from 171 to almost 800 in the matter of two months...hey, that's just about the time I began to feel under the weather. Do you suppose there is a correlation?
Maybe, I should
a.) eat proper meals
c.) get plenty of rest
d.) stop complaining and whining
e.) enjoy life
f.) take two aspirin and call a friend every day.
I hereby vow I will not blame the flu shot, nor visitors, not the public in general, nor anything or anybody else for how I feel. We are all in charge of our own destinies, so from today on it's gonna' be mind over matter, baby, mind over matter.
