“You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.” ―Elizabeth Gilbert
My morning didn’t start well. I woke up with a severe muscle strain from my nape down to the left side of my upper back. I was still feeling normal at seven thirty when my alarm started to go off. I should have been up by then for my class that would start by eight fifteen but I decided to extend our Spring break and tucked myself comfortably back in bed. I slept so late last night, or should I say this morning since it was already past four when my eyes finally felt the signs of dozing off. That’s why I needed more time to sleep, or I would be dizzy the whole day. For me, it wouldn’t make sense to stand up and try to function when you definitely know that you can’t because of lack of sleep. A seven to eight hour of sleep is very important for me. I can skip a meal or two but I absolutely cannot stand without enough sleep. I tend to be a little aßhole when I’m sleepless. Really aßhole when I’m very hungry. And an effin dragon when both. Who wouldn’t be? 😀
Going back to my back pain, it begun to disturb me when I tried to get up. I could only do limited movement because it’s so painful. I even have this feverish feeling already now while I’m writing this post, at the same time working on for a client. Ugh. Is it the price I have to pay for skipping school today? 😐 Meanwhile, I took a painkiller already to hopefully relieve the pain. I must have been sleeping in a very bad position last night.
Any of you experienced same situation? What were the home remedies you did to ease the pain? Aside from taking painkillers?
So, while I’m waiting for the medicine to take effect (if it’s effective) or perhaps for good souls to suggest possible ways to treat my suffering right now, I’d like to share with you what I wore previously featuring Spaghetti Straps Strappy Tank Top in Wine Red
