Gratitude and Reflection

Merry Christmas to all and a have a good new year!  

We just got back from the new Star Wars movie Rogue One. During the movie it dawned on me it was a year ago when we went to the last Star Wars movie and it made me realize all that's happened in that timeframe. Last year we went to the movie on December 17th, how do I know the date so well - it's because the night before I spent the night pacing the floor having trouble breathing, in non stop afib the first conversion hadn't held and I really had no clue what was going to happen. All I could focus on was how I was going to be able to sit thru the movie.  It probably sounds strange to be so focused on a movie but I'm a big fan and so is my entire family. We saw the first one just before the birth of our first child.  Now all these years later there I was pacing the floor having a full blown panic attack and worrying about how I would make it thru the movie the next day. Well I made it thru, my meds got adjusted, my breathing problems resolved as a result, a second conversion attempt a month later with the addition of Flecainide worked and has kept me in NSR to this day. I really do have much to be grateful for and it's moments like today in the movie that it dawns on me I way to often take things for granted and look at my current situation from the most negative prospective when all I have to do is remember what it was like in the past and then I truly am grateful for all I have today especially my NSR. 

May we all have NSR

    I enjoyed your post about gratitude and reflection. It's true that we all have much to appreciate when we are able to maintain NSR and reflect on the days we have spent when this was not the case.  Haven't seen ROGUE ONE, but it is definitely on my list...among several other movies I want to see!  I was grateful for all my family who were here keeping me busy throughout today...lots of food and lots of laughter!Best wishes to you and your family in the days to come in this New Year! ....Jean
