Little Respite

Cough, Cough, CoughTo my annoyance, I have again spent most of the night trying, and failing, to stop coughing myself stupid. Despite doses of cough mixture and lemon flavoured cold and flu capsules, each time I lay down to sleep, that tickle came back and I found myself having to get up to stop the coughing fit.

When experiencing failure or disappointment, frustration or illness, we tend to lose confidence and let fear overtake us. At such times, we need to make a conscious effort to move forward with strength and courage.

When we say to ourselves, “Next time I’ll succeed” or “I’m going to get better and make it through this”, we have already won.
