And then I got sick…

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Sorry I haven’t posted for a few weeks.

Life comes with unexpected twists sometimes. Unexpected twists that can happen to any of us and at any time.

That’s why I decided to share this post about me getting sick.

I shared it on social media first. After thinking long and hard about if I should share it or not.

Sickness is a personal thing, but one of the things I most value is honesty.

I believe it is important to speak your truth. That means sharing the negatives too and NOT treating my blog and social media as a ‘highlight reel’.

Just 3 weeks ago, I was getting checked over in hospital.

I’ve had a bunch of tests. No definite answers as to what has been wrong. The process of elimination has ruled lots of things as highly unlikely. I’m told that it doesn’t appear to be anything life threatening.

And now I’m starting to feel stronger and more human day by day.

Why am I sharing this?

Because we all have bad days. We all get sick sometimes. And life isn’t perfect.

This blog started as a spin-off from Natural Juice Junkie. A website dedicated to leading a healthy lifestyle through Attitude, Intake and Movement.

So how did the Natural Juice Junkie get sick?

Because sometimes we all do. Regardless of your actions there will ALWAYS be things happen in life that you didn’t plan for. There will always be unwanted surprises.

That is life.

It is important to remember that and embrace life on life’s terms.

Oh and find the things to be grateful for REGARDLESS of what is going on around you.

I am grateful for the support and care I received from so many people.

I am grateful for the reminder that I am not bulletproof.

I am grateful for knowing some ways I can support my body in healing itself.

And I am grateful to be recovering and getting back to normal.
