how catching a cold helped me change my view

After turning nineteen and celebrating Christmas, I caught a cold. Since I have asthma, it made it a little more complicated for me. This basically just means that I stayed in the bed for three days. I left the house for the first time since Christmas today to go to dinner, and honestly I think it was good for me. I very rarely relax completely, for multiple days. Since I have been on break, I have had a couple days were I really did little to nothing. I think doing that has allowed me to understand that life  is a combination of having lot so f un, relaxing and spending time with people you love. Your health is important. That means eating healthy, being happy and stress-free, along with meditation. One thing I want to discuss is the concept of energy. Everyone has energy (which is what creates the vibe you get when you meet someone). Occasionally when you get connected with others (which can be through normal interactions), you can connect with their energy. It is important to stay inside of your energy, so that you only harvest problems that affect you (taking on others energy can take on their problems). I definitely will make sure that I preserve my positive energy and stay healthier in the future. I also am learning how to take care of myself. This is going to be really helpful for my future (and to help take care of others). Remember to take time to take care of yourself. Protect your energy. Stay positive. I wish you all healthiness, happiness and growth!


As the weather is finally starting to get cold here, it’s important to take care of your body. Not only physically but remember that you are an emotional being in a physical body so you need to take care of your spirit too! This means that you need to make sure you’re eating enough, getting enough rest, working out and meditating. These things will not only help you stay healthy but balance your whole self. You want to be at peace with yourself and your surroundings. Remember that this is all part of a large journey! Stay positive!
