Life has been difficult the last couple of weeks. I have struggled to breathe. I have had pain radiating through my head so bad I honestly thought I might be dying. My neck feels like it can’t hold up my head half of the time. Walking is a chore, because I have been so dizzy. As much as I love to read, I couldn’t hardly read texts or Facebook for more than a couple of minutes at a time to keep people updated on my illness. Yes, I have COVID. I THINK am finally on the mend, with only a slight fever and with the inhaler I was given yesterday, I can almost take a full deep breath for the first time in 12 days!
SO, why am I talking about Sirens? No, I did not have to be taken by ambulance to the hospital. lol! Thanks for worrying though 😉 lol
What does a siren do?
It gets your attention.
It tells you something is coming.
It alerts you to something you should see.
It tells you to move over because something important needs to come front and center.
Last night, I became a Siren.
A couple months ago, I told you about joining Hunter Holmes Street Team Hunter’s Prospects. Tonight I was very honored to be taken into his elite circle and am now one of Hunter’s Sirens.
I know 2021 doesn’t have a real tough job of trying to be better than 2020, but so far, the first 4 days for me have been an emotional rollercoaster! lol! Three days ago, I shared my fears of what this illness could take from me. Since then, I have talked to several people from my new employer, and they are all 100% supportive of me taking the time to get well and coming back healthy. My loyal students and clients have shared their support in me taking time to heal and they would be there when I could safely come back. And not only did I not lose my spot on Hunter’s team, but I was raised up in love and support from them. My fears may have been unfounded, but they were my fears nonetheless.
I have been working on stitching some worn pieces of myself back together lately. I am going to continue that as I see where this next chapter of my life leads me. There will be speed bumps, and I know there will be doubts and tears, but I am going to do my best to live my best life. Having this illness, as I struggled to breathe a few times from coughing so hard, or cried in agony from the pain in my head, taught me that each day is a gift. And I am going to do my very best to stop wasting mine with mediocrity.
This Siren is telling you now that Great Things are coming! Not only for Hunter, but with the care and support of this amazing new community, and one of the best friends I have ever found, I feel in my soul that, I too, am in for some well deserved wonderful.
So Pay Attention!
