Which is exactly what I did last week. My good buddies, the Game Girls, and I ran away to the ocean mid-week where we stayed in two neighboring condos. We played games (we're playing a card game called Golf Ten in this picture), ate amazing food, yakked, and walked the beach. Just what the doctor ordered. I came home feeling refreshed and ready to face life's challenges again. And while we were enjoying our getaway I discovered I can now walk up a flight of stairs - no, make that two flights - without being winded and having to stop. No racing heart either. Yay! I am well on the road to recovery.
And I'm sure a good deal of that recovery has to do with the emotional support I've had from family and friends. I'm convinced the best medicine a girl can take is down time with people who are dear to her. Changing up the environment, changing focus - those can help bring about positive emotional changes. And I'm so thankful for the good buddies I have who make me laugh and listen when I cry. Do you have good friends like that? I sure hope so!
