One blog per month I can do better than that

So the past couple months have posed some difficulties with a truly tough allergy season. I haven't felt like myself, run down. I've woke up extremely congested, and I've had many contact issues with several days of wearing just one contact. Who knew that vision was so important?

I know that one option is signing up for years of shots, and I hope to bypass it. So instead I started going to a naturopath doctor, and guess what? I'm feeling much better. I am hoping that this foray into alternative medicine will put me back on the path to feeling like myself again. I want to feel great when I head to Australia in October.

The realization and awareness that I'm having is showing me that sometimes we need help. This was one of those times for me, and often I want to figure it out on my own. But instead I just need to find the right help.

I'm really good at seeking at help for professional growth, however, I'm not as good at getting the assistance I need for self-care. One day I wasn't sure I could even wear one contact. I made it home, barely, however, that may have been the time to ask someone to drive me home. It's just so darn hard to admit when you can't do it on your own.

Reminds me of this song...'miss independent, miss self-sufficientm, miss keep your distance, mmmm.' Time to bloom. I think so!
