Thankful Tuesdays #19 – Health

Written as part of 52 Weeks of Gratitude Challenge which I’m attempting this year.


My Health

Week 19 – Thankful Tuesdays

For most of my life, I’ve been perfectly healthy. I remember, when I was in school, I’ve once gone a year without taking a sick leave. But of late, health seems to be deteriorating. I’m feeling more tired than I usually do. I’ve had prolonged periods with fever, and now, with summer at its peak (almost), I seem to get easily dehydrated. When one comes, it seems to set off the dominos. I hope that one day soon, the health issues sort of get sorted. I’m thankful that with the periods of prolonged illness, there are prolonged periods of good health too, and I’m thankful for that health. Hopefully, the efforts I am putting to get healthy would pay off.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
