Thank you for this sickness (#173)

Day highlights:

  • Did absolutely nothing today.
  • I was sick af and couldn’t even function properly.
  • Spent a lot of time resting.
  • Watched Jujutsu Kaisen 0 the movie.

Thought of the day:

First of all, this post isn’t late. The platform I am using had its server down so I couldn’t post; however, I wrote this at 12:12am and this does not count as me losing my streak.

What I’m about to write sounds really weird, but here it is:

I am grateful to God that he made me sick.

I haven’t been this sick in forever. To the point where I literally couldn’t do anything productive and not sleepy enough that I slept the whole day.

I am grateful because while I was just lying around, my mind somehow thought of death and it made me extremely grateful for all the loved ones I have.

When you’re all healthy, it’s really hard to imagine yourself dying and the repercussions it would have; however, when you’re plagued with an unknown illness, it does not take much to think “wow, imagine if this was some deadly illness or something”. God, please, I do not want to die, I was just thinking about death for some reason.

Anyway, having this experience of between very sick gave me a different perspective on life. Now, is this perspective going to stay with me even when I become fully healthy? I don’t know. But I hope so.

Although this was a cool experience, I also wish to play in the tournament this weekend. That’s why, before going to sleep, I will pray for both me and JB’s recoveries so that we may play well at Lachine !

Good night.
