I was floored by a mysterious illness yesterday. Not the respiratory kind, luckily, as this is the big scare at the moment, but I had the worst stomach cramps imaginable.
I cancelled my training session and my drinks with friends. Instead I tried to recover at home.
What surprised me however, is that although I was thankfully better on Thursday, I was deflated and without energy the whole of the next day. So often we take our health for granted, and don’t realise how everything is finely balanced. Mess up one thing and everything else is out of kilter.
I was also reminded of how often we don’t see the difficulties of others, especially if it’s not obviously visible, like in the case of a broken leg. It would make the world a bit more friendly if we all took that into account every now and then.
Be kind. Stay safe.
