Day 11: Answering "No"

I am in the process of changing my life insurance policy, which is just a real joy.  Which is also just a real lie.  So far I've sat through two different people asking me a 476 questions about my health.  "Have you ever had....." and "Have you ever been diagnosed with..."

At just about the time I was thinking about what an incredible waste of time this was on my Friday afternoon, it occurred to me that this isn't a waste of time for some people.  Being able to continuously say "no" to practically every answer is not something I should take lightly.

Today I am thankful for the good health I have today - at this moment.

I know it is fleeting - this thing called "health".  I guess that's all the more reason to celebrate it today.  I am thankful for test results that don't warrant a contact, and doctor's check-ups that are just merely a thorn in my schedule rather than a entire change to the way I live and my outlook on life. 

The Year of Gratitude

I had this realization when visiting the doctor over break. I answered NO to everything. What a blessing!
