Illness and Enlightenment

Well, I haven't been at my healthiest lately. I'm nursing a cold, and I haven't been sleeping well, so I've been exhausted a lot. Usually, having a stuffed head and a tired body results in an onslaught of negative emotions, and for a while that's been the case. However, in the last day or so, I've been in a kind of serene place. It feels like surrender. I think I finally stopped trying to fight my crazy mind and ailing body, and just go with it. So, now I'm a bit spacey, moving slow, rethinking some of my less healthy habits...but in a kind of comfortable, peaceful bubble. I wonder if I can preserve some of this serenity for the times when I'm actually healthy!
