Follow Your Dreams

Life is full of ups and downs; good and bad; happy and sad. But life is really what you make of it. So make the best of it! Follow those dreams! The road to success may not be an easy one, but you can overcome. “The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.”

Rainbows and rain

Never, ever give up on those dreams. I hope you find whatever you are looking for at the end of your rainbow!

Cheers!

Trust Yourself

We all have moments of self-doubt and fear. Learning to trust our instincts will help us conquer those fears. Just like the children’s story about the little engine that could, think you can, and you will! “Trusting yourself means living out what you already know to be true.”

Trust yourself

So put those fears aside and go with your gut instinct. Sometimes we all need a little kick in the pants to recognize what we already know to be true. Believe in yourself and you can be living the life of your dreams.

Cheers!

Tuesday Thoughts….

I often use the hashtag #lovewhatyoudo because I believe that if you enjoy your work, it doesn’t feel like work. Everyone should find something that makes them happy; something they are passionate about; something they are good at. And then do more of that.

I came across this quote and decided to look up the author, as I had never heard of him. Frank Tyger was an editorial cartoonist, a humor columnist, and an artist. He has many wonderful quotes attributed to him. On Mondays he would write a column that always ended with, “May today be the start of a wonderful week for you.”  Such positivism that we don’t always see these days. It’s this kind of everyday inspiration that I look for in life.

I hope you find your freedom, like what you do, and do what you like. Or even better, do what you love and love what you do. ❤

Have a wonderful week!

Cheers!

May 12th each year has been designated as Fibromyalgia Awareness Day. This year’s theme “Helping yourself…while helping others” reminds us that you feel better when you help others living with FMS.

I started my blog to share my strategies for life with fibromyalgia and to inspire others to seek healthy lifestyle changes and find joy in their lives, despite those challenges they might be facing.

10 Things to Inspire – Fibromyalgia Awareness Day

I have fibromyalgia. It does not have me.

May 12th each year has been designated as Fibromyalgia Awareness Day. For most of us suffering with Fibromyalgia Syndrome every day is really awareness day, as explaining this condition to others is part of the game. It is a “silent condition” that it is ill-understood. We don’t always look sick, but we may be exhausted, in pain, and suffering silently from one of the hundreds of symptoms associated with this. Fibrowarriors many of us call ourselves, as we just keep on keeping on. People may have heard the term from a drug commercial on TV or from the news of Lady Gaga cancelling part of her tour, but do they really understand it?

My Mantra is: “I have fibromyalgia. It does not have me.”
