I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying sunny skies and warm weather. May is in full swing here in Upstate NY. Lilacs and other flowering plants are in full bloom. Which naturally for me means that the last two weeks have been a push/pull battle of a fatigue and pain flare. Yes like the trees and flowers my fibro is in full bloom. I’ve won the battle for the most part but no one see’s the hidden scars and emotional torment that rear their ugly head most often at night. A constant wax and wane of overbearing fatigue that has made soldiering through the day (let alone work week) all the more difficult. By the weekend I’m completely wore out with nothing left to do but collapse and spend the whole day in bed. So, it should come as no surprise that posts have been hit or miss lately and for that I apologize. But not to much. You see this journey has taught me more than a few life lessons over the past six years or so of battling this invisible illness. Most important being that I do what I can when I can and the things I cannot do, I don’t do and feel no guilt about it. So with that I’ll leave you with an inspiring quote that has helped me stay triumphant over these last few weeks and count each and every one of my blessings every single day.
“People need to get it out of their head that they need to accomplish X, X, and X in order to be happy and realize that personal happiness is INTERNAL, and we can choose to be happy with our current life and situation. Weeping will endure for the night but joy comes in the morning”
As always stay triumphant.
