5 Gifts of the Flu-A One Love Nugget

By Gabriela Masala

Feb 11

After 2 days of feeling quite miserable , I finally surrendered to the obvious: I had a flu bug and no amount of simply slowing down my mega tasking and keeping a bright attitude (I was not sick! Just a little under the weather!) was going to keep it from flattening me. I got flattened.

Here’s what I also got:

  • Healing sleep, dreaming and integration time to digest big changes in my life.
  • Much needed practice in asking for help and being nurtured.
  • An opportunity to Stop, Drop and Flop ,allowing deeper waves of emotion to flow. I wept till I laughed. Coming undone felt so liberating.
  • A phat piece of humble pie. Vulnerability, like connection are queen!
  • A huge dose of gratitude and awe for hubs & daughter and their devotional, sweet love.

The Universe is generous. I am a believer…we always get what we most need.

I'm reminded of one of my favorite songs. Frou Frou – Let Go

"Cause there's beauty in the breakdown"
"Oh, it's so amazing here"

Holding you in my heart. I love you!

As I read your nuggets below the one about humility
rang familiar through my body. In class today I had humility wash over me and if felt so sweet,
felt like letting go, and was a letting go of control. I still feel it…it feels good.
