Despite the best of intentions and planning, sometimes things just don’t go the way you planned.
I only take one medicine. Over the past year, that medicine has made me increasingly tired to the bone and short of breath. By a quirk of fate (and a change of ownership), I ended up having to find a new doctor. It turns out that my new doctor is fantastic! He didn’t like the medicine that I was taking any more than I did, so, he switched me to a new prescription.
I had been taking that medicine for only a week, when I was rushed to the hospital with a “leaking” appendix. An appendectomy soon followed, combined with my first ever over-night stay at the hospital. I don’t believe the two things are related, it’s just my dumb luck.
I’ve always been an athlete. I’ve always watched what I eat. However, starting at around 50 years old, my body seemed to start falling apart, one body part at a time. It’s been very frustrating when all I want to do is focus on my handbag business, but I find myself too tired, sick, sore, or otherwise incapacitated to do just that.
It’s been a week since my emergency surgery. It’s been two weeks since my new medicine. There’s a part of me that wants to wait until I’m feeling better, but I’m tired of waiting. It’s time to seize the day! I may not be able to run a 5K, but I can sit at my computer and type. I have plenty of handbags made. I can wrap goodies. So, it’s time to go forward.
Small Business Saturday is November 26th and I’m not going to miss it! Instead, I’m going all out. Stay tuned as I have some fun things planned, including some giveaways!
All the best,
