Lent 2020 – Day 21

I’m in this weird, liminal space of I think I’m getting better and God’s in the middle of answering my prayers, but that doesn’t mean I get complacent and stop praying for the full answers.

I slept at 1AM and I woke up at around 11AM, but I didn’t have any headaches upon waking up. The only time my sleep was disrupted was when my ‘natural’ alarm of 8AM woke me up, which meant that this was my first night of sleep where I got more than 4 hours of sleep in a row. It’s been weeks since I’ve had a good night’s rest, so this means the world to me and my mood.

My digestive problems aren’t completely gone, but my gut feels a lot better. Maybe it’s the lack of coffee over the past 5 days. Maybe it’s the lack of spicy and fried foods in general. Maybe the folic acid is actually working, and my circulatory system is doing its thing again, therefore stimulating my digestive system into normalcy again. Maybe it’s the 7+ hours of uninterrupted sleep.

On top of that, today was the first day I was able to get work done. Not just reply to some messages or make a plan for when I can work – I got stuff done. I never thought I would be happy clearing out my inboxes.

There’s a lot to celebrate today, including the wonderful conversations I’ve had, the silly social media threads of drawing fruits and posting positive things, and pleasant surprise check-ins.

However, if there’s anything I’ve learnt from the past two months is that the bad times will pass, and so do the good times.

So as I say to everyone: one day at a time. One prayer request at a time. One moment of celebration at a time. We take things one thing at a time, so thank God that He handle it all, all at once.
