So Lame

by Tom Swift

Let’s face it: you’re not good at being sick.

Yet illness is, as you know, an opportunity. To practice acceptance. To let go of things you cannot or should not do. To give your body what it needs. And nothing more.

Don’t fight it. Don’t fret. Don’t fear.

Exert your influence over illness — drink your hot tea and get your rest and watch movies if you can’t focus on your books — but don’t spend time thinking you’re in control.

Do what you can. What you must. Same as always.
