For the first three weeks after the diagnosis I was not allowed to use a computer or a phone. I could not even watch TV. I was only allowed to sleep or take a walk if I felt good. The first couple of weeks were hard. The following weeks were better as I learned how to pace myself. I realized that my body was quite adept at letting me know when it had had enough. And so I listened to me and surprisingly, I learned a lot about myself. For the first time in my life I was able to rest without guilt and it was wonderful. I unplugged and reconnected with nature and it made me incredibly happy. This enabled me to see ME for the first time in what seemed like forever and I started to understand what was missing in my life, what I needed and what I no longer needed.

White and Blue Dining Room
This is exactly what I would've liked for my dining room. I love the mix of contemporary with traditional or classic. Even though it can be hard to do, this photo shows you how simple it really can be. The chandelier, scallop bowl and traditional material add just enough traditional to the contemporary mix. Everything looks great together and the traditional elements soften the hard lines of the contemporary table. Although I'm not a big fan of blue in décor I find that the blue here adds a serenity to the room that would be hard to imitate with any other color.
