Intended Duration: 5 minutes
Actual Duration: 10 minutes
Thoughts: I'm feeling unwell. Somehow I sat, but I let the wall support me and kept my legs straight out because they ache from fever. The last time I was sick (in January), I had a reading done, and I found out just how much grief and guilt I experience surrounding illness. I was sick as a child quite often, and the pain in my body always made me feel sorrowful. I also felt quite bad when my parents had to miss work to care for me. With this cold I had now, I am working on not feeling bad about being sick, and recognizing that it is a transient experience like any other.
Focus: Breathing deeply in and out
Wisdom: It takes time to heal.
