Rest. 

What has cancer taught me? To rest! That sometime you need to relax and just go to bed early. 

I have had an absolutely manic day cleaning and scrubbing for hours and hours and I’m really tired. I have also been looking forward to going to the gym all day. But I have learned over the last year that when I’m tired, it’s far better to rest than to push myself. So although I am disappointed that I can’t go to the gym, I’m am proud of myself for not listening to the obsessive exercise demon that is in me and just taking it easy instead. 

Of course I could go to the gym and force myself, and I would do a session and be pleased! But in the long run it might do more harm than good. 

Adversity has made me appreciate myself and taught me to listen to my body and tonight is a Netflix and early to bed night!
