The past few days I have had a terrible flu and today I have had to excuse myself from the day’s activities. I reckon in my current state I pose more risks to others’ health with all the sneezing.
The flu has reminded me of my own mortality. The strains seem to get worse each time and I need to find out why I am so vulnerable despite trying to eat well and keep fit.
The absence is a painful but necessary retreat for me to make. I like to participate and be active. This time is an opportunity to reflect on everything thus far, to regroup my thoughts, regain my health and plan for the great future ahead. I may be down but certainly not out!
