Also, being sick like that makes a person appreciate their health and how much they can accomplish when they are feeling well. This was the week I was going to get my stuff together. That didn't exactly pan out the way I had hoped. Still, that is part of the journey.
We just started watching Smallville, and I have been noticing the people that he helps do help him learn something about himself. That is part of the journey, taking some knowledge from what happens in your life. I have had colds before, but it is a reminder in the journey to take care of myself, don't take it for granted. It sounds silly to compare myself to a TV show about a super hero, but it is hard to ignore.
