Ready for a High Five Friday celebration?
We’ve missed that past 2 weeks of HFF’s, but I received a HFF submission this week, so we’re celebrating! I hope you’re excited as I am because I love HFF!
HFF is a day to celebrate your accomplishments and be proud of YOU. I find that we do not give ourselves enough recognition for all of the amazing things we do on a daily basis, so I created HFF! You can read more about HFF here.
The following submission was submitted to me via email. If you’d like to appear in a HFF post please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your high five!
Dana – “I’m giving myself a high five this week for taking a huge leap of faith and staying strong. I’ve been really, really sick for a couple weeks now, so much that I couldn’t even get off the couch for about two weeks. I’ve basically been eating bananas, rice and chicken broth for 3 weeks. None of my doctors can figure out what’s wrong with me, and I won’t have any of the (extensive) tests we’ve done back for another week. But I was able to see a silver lining in all of this – being this sick finally made me realize that I need to completely pull back from my high stress life to allow myself to fully heal from the many health problems I’ve been dealing with for the past year and a half. This week, I quit my full-time job and I’ll be moving back home with my parents. It’s terrifying to go what seems like backwards, but I know it’s what I need to do to get well. I’m also excited I’ll FINALLY be able to focus on myself by removing unnecessary stressors in my life.
A quote that’s really helped me through these past few weeks: “The period of greatest gain in knowledge and experience is usually the most difficult period in one’s life.” – the Dalai Llama”
This week I will be giving myself a high five for working so hard on my case studies. I have 5 more left to write (we have to complete 14 in total) and knowing that I am more than half way done with just under a month left to go makes me feel really good, confident, and less stressed!
What are you giving yourself a high five for this week?
I’d also like to thank all of you for being so understanding with my new blog schedule lately. I dislike not blogging as frequently as I used to, but this schedule just works for me right now. I’m sure that once I am done studying for my final exam at the end of August, I will be back and blogging more regularly like usual!
Have a great weekend, friends, and I will talk to you on Monday!
Tell me, what is your high five?
