So I went to bed last night and knew instantly that I was not well. My teeth were actually chattering. My head was bit achy and my feet and hands refused to warm up. A couple of hours later I woke up and could hear my heartbeat racing and knew that I was running a fever. I didn’t bother getting up, choosing instead to let my body do what it’s supposed to.
I woke up around 3 am and noticed that my bed was very damp and I felt slightly better. Guess my fever had broken.
I woke up this morning, ready to get on with going to work when I felt a bit tired and weak, probably from my body’s nightly battle and decided right then that I would call in to work and let them know I would go in a little later.
I decided to let my body continue to heal and then go in for a bit and then return home and continue my recuperation this evening.
The thing is I would have never been able to do this before last May.
Since my husband and I have been changing our spending habits and saving money on all things, it’s opened up an opportunity of being able to be sick.
I know that sounds strange, but before then, we had to go to work even when we were bad off. With my limited sick days and his sick days being non existent, all our pennies were counted before they were made and any deviation of this would have set us back a little bit.
I write blogs every day and most are about mental well being and how you can improve on your grateful thoughts and such, and I also write blogs about saving money and being financially secure and/or saving for what YOU want.
The thing is my blogs for both are not so far off of each other.
When you can take good care of what your money is doing, it gives you the opportunity to be healthier of mind and body. You don’t have those internal squeezing vices of debt and being in trouble that constantly looms in a world of the needing to know where the next paycheck is coming from. So when you get a bit a setback of getting sick, you don’t need to suddenly be worried on top of being sick. You can just concentrate on getting better.
This is why when I write for 2 weeks about mental breakthroughs, and then a couple days on savings and my books, you mustn’t think they are completely worlds apart. Everything ties in to each other.
On that note, while I slept fighting infection, my second book is got published on Amazon and is now available. More Ways We Were Able to Save $7000 A Year. In case you might be keeping score. We are up to $9000 a year and counting with both books.
Now if you want to get some of that action, it’s easy and only one click away. Available in most countries. And will be on the side bar of my blog shortly!
