After experiencing vertigo for almost two weeks, I finally had to go see my doctor. I had been avoiding going to the hospital because of all places, that is where I would contact "antie Coro" lol Reluctantly, I went to see my doctor. You see, in the middle of last year, my doctor of over six years left and I had such a hard time adjusting. I was so heartbroken because it had taken us so many years to get to where we both understood each other and she was reliable. Now, I could not fantom having to do that "getting-to-know" someone else...like a new boyfriend! Lord, the work! What I did not know was he would be a wonderful addition to my life. What a turn around!
In our first meeting, I was blown away because the man was so knowledgeable and so detailed I was so impressed. Then yesterday, he solidified why I made a huge mistake in my hesitation. He took his time and calmed me down for all fears and discomfort I was experiencing. He did not assume "I know best because I am the doctor!" I was so at ease as he manipulated my body to alleviate some of the issues I was experiencing.
This was when it dawned on me! The bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 "In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you". Also because "to everything, there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven" (Ecclesiastes 3:1). Rather than complaining, I need to learn to be more appreciative even for the things that do not appear as I would want them. God has a reason and purpose to everything that happens in life. As much of a cliche as it may be, question is, will I be opened to paying attention and being grateful to the little things? I need to be. Life is too short to be worried about the little things. One has to take some time to appreciate the small things and take time to smell the roses.
It is for such reasons that The Euphoric Palace came about. The need to have a moment of peace and relaxation is absolutely important. One must be able to take a moment to appreciate life and take time for yourself. Maintaining one's sanity is better not only for you but also for those depending on you.
