I don’t think we appreciate our own health quite enough. By this I don’t mean that we appreciate that we don’t have life threatening illnesses or loved ones with life threatening illnesses. Nobody appreciates health more than those people.
What I mean is more in terms of day to day health. Coughs and colds and sniffles and tummy bugs. I don’t think until you actually get past the point of no return and you’re laid up in bed with the flu, that you actually realise quite how nice being healthy is.
Having the cold and constantly blowing my nose made me appreciate just how lovely being able to breathe through my nose actually is. The cough has forced me into finally doing what I should have done years ago and quit smoking!
