C’est la vie is one of my favourite expressions and it’s the reason why I got it tattooed on my wrist. It’s a daily reminder to me that no matter what, things happen in life that is out of my control. Whether it is good things or bad, that’s life and I just have to keep moving on.
The last 3 weeks have been brutal, to say the least. My last post was exactly 3 weeks ago and at that time I was battling through a bad flu and I just wasn’t getting any better. I decided to go to the Doctor’s a week after that to find out what was going on and I found out that I had both bronchitis and walking pneumonia. A double whammy that just sucks out any energy that you may have.
I was put on antibiotics and at first, I was starting to feel great! I was able to breathe a lot better and not everything would make me feel like I just ran a marathon. However, I was told no working out or any physical activity for 3-4 weeks, I just needed to rest. Which was great, but in reality, it just doesn’t happen. I work a full-time job that constantly has me on my feet and every day that I came home, I just wanted to sleep.
On top of feeling exhausted, the antibiotics were giving me horrible side effects. With the normal nausea and upset stomach, I was feeling no desire to do anything. I contemplated quitting blogging, I didn’t want to plan my wedding anymore, work was just unbearable for me to even think of and I all I wanted to do was sleep. I wasn’t depressed, but I just didn’t have any passion for anything.
Thankfully, the last pill was taken and 3-4 days later, I started to feel like myself again. I was watching Snaps from some of my favourite YouTubers and I got that desire to blog again. I am needing to go to the gym and I just feel like I can do anything again. It’s odd what a medication can do to you not only physically, but mentally. It’s the reason why I try to avoid them if I can.
At the end of the day, I am happy that I am feeling healthy again and that I have that passion to do the things I love. I wasn’t sure if I was going to blog anymore, but over the last couple days I have been itching to get back into it and do what I started almost 2 years ago. The amount of inspiration that I get from everyone else is what keeps me going, so I hope that never goes away.
Thank you for taking the time to read what has been going on with me. Every day I get notifications saying I have new followers or there are new likes and comments and that is what keeps me going. It’s the feeling that people are interested in what I am putting out there!
I will be back tomorrow with a new post, but I wanted to let everyone know where I have been in the meantime 🙂 If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment down below.
