According to what my doctor said yesterday, I am very sick and should take it easier. According to the way I felt this morning, she was right. But guess what? Once I rested a bit today, I was actually able to get a few more things done. Lupus gave me a 2nd wind. It doesn't always do that. And sure, I'm still not quite up to par. And yes, I will have to rest again.
Still, I was ready to throw the whole darn day out the window. That would have been a mistake. Because if I did, the watermelon would not have gotten planted. The stray cucumber plant that I missed the other day wouldn't be ready to work its' way up the trellis from the pot I popped it into. The dishes would not have gotten done and this little post would not be getting written.
In fact, with a little rest, here and there, I may even be able to tackle some more small projects before the day is through. And to think I was all ready to give up the entire day due to a little sick spell.
Now, wouldn't that have been a wasted day? And all because I assumed, due to how I felt at one bad moment, that I would be sitting on my butt the rest of the day.
Lupus says, “Never assume.”
