A smile brightens my face as the first rays of sunshine appear above the horizon. What a beautiful dawn it is. I have a decent bit of things on my plate to do this morning but being there to witness the dawn of a new day gives me so much peace. It’s the little things that make life beautiful, I think.
Anyhow, I finished reading two chapters of my psychology book in the dark… Well, in the dark on a lighted porch. I couldn’t sleep and thought I might as well get some homework outta the way. I enjoy doing my homework before the world wakes up.
Today is Holy Monday which starts the beginning of Holy Week and the lead-up to Easter. I will be writing cards all this next week to friends and family announcing our wedding as well as a little personal note. I think Holy Week is symbolically a wonderful time to get that done.
I confess, this year has been tough on me. I have waffled between keto, gluten-free, vegetarian etc. diets. Which indeed, took a toll on me. I, recently, was diagnosed with anemia.
With any new diagnosis it seems, there’s shock, then disbelief, then anger at the diagnosis. For me at least.
I’m going to start eating a balanced diet and see if that helps as well as B12 supplements.
So, I did a little nutritional research on foods that will help my dificiency:
- White Bread
- Fortified Cereal
- Red meat
- Kale & Spinach
- Fortified Orange Juice
It’s not a huge change just a little and I’m sure I’ll be fine by-and-by.
Maybe you’ve experienced this diagnosis too. Please share below in how you’re dealing with it.
Persevere even when times get rough… My motto and I’m stickin’ by it.
