“Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.” ~ Anonymous
Today, I had quite a scare in my life. I was rushed early morning to the hospital for a numbness I couldn’t explain. My difficulty in breathing was different from the chronic asthma attacks I’ve grown up with. I have lived through asthma since 7 and survived those hospital injections. This was another phase in life to hurdle with my health. Though I don’t smoke, or drink, I don’t watch what I eat. Think of the many restaurant opening invitations I couldn’t refuse!
I spend sleepless nights because fatigue and sleepiness don’t get to me till the morning. More so when I have to prepare for a trip or a workshop the next day. I am multitasking in exhaustion. The spirit is too excited, but the flesh is getting weak.
I am tired, but I am in denial.
And even when I am content with the things I have done in my life to make myself proud, there were little matters I needed to finish. Those mini-blogs in the works, the e-books I want to share, the unfinished projects. Going back to painting. The unplanned trips (they happen more than when I plan it). The biggest deal nearing fruition over family properties.
Does this mean I have to slow down in life? My dreams are sprouting mini-dreams. I have to keep going.
But first, I have to recover from colds and fever.
