I am feeling a little low. My right arm, which is injured, unexpectedly got worse yesterday and the medication – antibiotics and painkillers are playing havoc with my system. This morning I woke up to a very-swollen arm. First, I laughed at the sight. Then, remembering it is my arm, I sobered up. The ice-cold water from the tap helped. I froze, arm mid-way between the running water and my mouth. Ask me why. My hand did not reach my mouth because of the swelling.
I progressively became more and more alarmed because I don’t want it to get worse..and went to my regular doc. He took one look at it and asked what I had applied. Surprise surprise. I am allergic to betadine this time around. Who knew? Anyway, I can now stop the painkiller and antibiotic and take only an antihistamine (whew! what a mouthful….and a tummyfull!). I’ve also been prescribed a topical cream – to apply on the crazy arm. Reassured, I returned home.
A positive attitude always works for me. I decided, I would share a quote on positive thinking with you. And dear friends, at the end of the post, I’ve got a free download for you. Clicking that link lets you directly download the book. Yes. I found it recently and signed up, because it seemed like a grand idea to be able to offer you’all something really nice.
On this note, I would like to share a fabulous post by Farnoosh Brock of Prolific Living that I simply adore. Please do read: The Power of Positive Thinking – 22 thoughts to change your life. It is full of affirmations that will help brighten up your day.
Besides solid encouragement and great resources, Farnoosh also offers a free 21-step confidence building email course – check it out. I really loved it.
And, I would like to share one more gem with you – from a beautiful post titled “On being who I am” written by my friend Terri Sonoda -her powerful words touched my soul.
If that is not positive thinking, I want to know what is.
And now, the book download. (No sign up required).
