The other evening I felt so sick.  I also had insomnia.  I'm normally the person that can sleep through anything... and I have.  But that night I went to sleep at 10 PM, woke up at 11:00 PM and was awake until 4:30 AM when I FINALLY was able to fall back to sleep.  When I woke up at 9:30, I still felt ill.

My reason for telling you all that is because I know a way to make you feel better when you're not feeling great.  My normal MO is to feel sorry for myself for at least a day.  But THIS day I did something different.  I went out and helped other people.  It's amazing how when you're helping others and concentrating on them, you forget about all your aches, pains, and problems.  Focussing your energy and attention on others automatically makes YOU feel better.

This theory was confirmed a couple of days later.  I was still not completely well... intermittent headaches, stomach pain, and heartburn.  A friend called needing some help.  She came over to the house and my symptoms disappeared while I focussed my attention on her.

So the next time you're feeling a little off, go out and find someone to help.  It will make them feel better AND make you feel better too.  It's a win-win.

Love, Paula
