Tell Me Something Good – Breathing Involuntary
i’m still here and still pregnant! i skipped a post wednesday because the baby was obviously soaking up all of my brain juice. if i would have published something it would have simply been demands for various types of salty and sweet foods. no value there (except to my tastebuds and my rapidly expanding waistline).
today’s ‘tell me something good’ has to do with health.
i am so grateful to be healthy and have a healthy little one growing inside me. i went to the acupuncturist yesterday to try to get things moving (if you’ve never done acupuncture, i highly recommend it – so good). as with all new medical offices, forms had to be filled out. here’s a fun fact about me – i actually really love filling out forms and surveys, for the real.
i go through the list of things i could be experiencing during this pregnancy (high blood pressure, gestational diabetes, etc) as well as my past medical history. as i continued to check the “no” boxes, gratitude filled me.
i try hard not to take health for granted but it’s often easy to do, especially when we aren’t experiencing sickness or chronic illness.
sure, i have a few pregnancy symptoms that are pretty uncomfortable and it literally hurts every time i take a step but oh my goodness, it’s overwhelming how much goodness my body does for me.
i encourage you to take a moment and make a mental (or physical list) of all the good things your health and body is doing for you know.
here’s some of my list:
- my body knows how to breathe involuntary
- my heart circulates blood all on its own
- except for pain in my nether-region, i do not experience pain throughout my body
- i am not allergic to things in nature
- my mental health is so much better than it was even a few years ago
- i am able to walk
- all of my main organs function as they should
- i don’t have to think about blinking
- my body procreated when i chose for it to
- my teeth are healthy
- i can see, smell, taste, hear and feel touch
i have family members and friends who are currently battling various illnesses and disease so i find it extra important to take note of the areas of our health that are good.
what are you grateful for about your health today or share something good with me!
