Healing: #reberb10 Day 19

Today’s prompt:  What healed you this year? Was it sudden, or a drip-by-drip evolution? How would you like to be healed in 2011? (Author: Leonie Allan)

I have done a lot of healing this year.  The past few years have been difficult physically because of various health issues.  I’m doing much better right now, though.  The improvement wasn’t sudden at all.  I’ve worked hard to get where I am.  Mainly, I’ve achieved better health through diet and exercise.  I have dieted and exercised like crazy, and I can really tell a difference because of it.

I also have my friend Jeanne to thank.  She introduced me to the concept of the saline sinus rinse.  It sounds disgusting, but it works.  I’ve using a saline rinse on my sinuses twice a day lately, and my issues with allergies and asthma have dramatically improved.  It’s almost Christmas, and I don’t have bronchitis.  This is a pretty big deal for me.  If you are allergic person, you should really get on board the saline trend.  I’m a believer.

I think I can thank my camera as well. It’s brought me real pleasure. It’s given me an interest to take my mind off my stress levels. It’s also helped me keep exercising by motivating me to walk around looking for photo opportunities.

That said, today’s picture is just a simple cat-about-house pose as Mowgli catches a little morning sun.
