Taking a Drug Holiday – Guest Post by Nikki
NIKKI’S GUEST POST:
Today was a drug holiday… Enough said. It’s always weird to take one for me. I always forget what it’s like. I don’t want to think about how many naps I had and the things I had hoped to get done.
It’s interesting how some people see a nap as a treat and I see it as I would be very happy to never take another one as long as I live. It’s no longer a pleasure when it becomes a necessity.
But it is times like these that I am actually proud, I get the unique opportunity to experience life in ways that most don’t. I understand and savor the win even more at the end of fighting through the day. It’s not just a fight to stay awake, a fight to stay sane and with reality, its a fight for life and I am very grateful The Lord has given me another day to do just that.
REM Runner’s Note: My friend Nikki (@rebel_dreamer_ on Instagram) shared this beautiful insight today on Instagram and I asked her to share here too. Thank you, Nikki, for being raw, real and inspiring!
Thanks for sharing your drug holiday experiences, Nikki. You’ve motivated me not to neglect my own drug holidays, and to approach them more light-heartedly.
