What is even more interesting is the concept of gratitude, while waiting for your medicine to dissolve. Gratitude for having the luxury of being able to afford and access medicine.
Although being able to afford medication means that one is well taken care of, the notion of medication has always been dreaded.
The experience of watching the blooming medicine serves as a form of emotional relief in addition to physical relief from the medication; by slowing down our pace, creating a moment to take a breather, and reflect on what we are blessed with.Luxury is feeling blessed in the face of adversity.
In the rare occasions that I do need to take medicine I must remember to focus on gratitude for having medicine to take.
