Today’s Affirmation

Today’s Affirmation

00-pinkrose-20180212_162930_39523289734_o_pe

Success as defined by a woman with chronic illnesses.

To me, I claim success in the smallest of accomplishments.  I may be going through a miserable fibro flare or have been glutened that day and be in horrible pain.  But if I can accomplish just one thing – getting out of bed, taking a shower, brushing my hair or posting one blog, I feel like I’ve accomplished something despite the pain.  It helps perk me up, and it’s also good distraction therapy.  Don’t get me wrong, I then reward myself by sometimes going back to bed or getting in the hot tub and laying down on the sofa and not doing anything else the rest of the day.  But, I did accomplish that ONE thing this day and that is something, give it a try.  Distraction therapy helps.

    Good advice. One thing leads to a second thing which eventually leads to many things!

      Some days, like today is a real struggle, but its better than just laying there feeling the pain and thinking about it. 🙂

    I understand what the great woman says. Anything accomplished at the time is a success, even having one mouth full of food and one step forward and a glass of milk or water.
