Lately I have had a difficult time writing new blog posts. I am feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, had a flare-up of my fibromyalgia, and am just lacking the creative inspiration and desire to research and write a post. And that’s OK by me.
We all face times of uncertainty in our lives. We all need to take a step back at times and do less. For this month, I am giving you 10 ways to unplug and recharge. And the great thing is this list applies to those with or without a chronic illness, so I hope this gives you some ideas to find time for YOU.
Spring time is my favorite season as everything starts blooming and birds are singing. I enjoy stepping outside to see all of the buds on my perennials, and just anticipate the colorful flowers that will soon emerge.
It’s a shame we can’t all take a lesson from nature, and not rush everything. I have tried to be better about this as the years go by. I used to think having a fibro-flare was my body’s way of telling me it was time to slow down and rest.

Breaking negative thinking isn’t easy. But it’s not impossible.
It’s “March Madness” but that doesn’t mean we all need to live the part. Viktor Frankl said, “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” Those stimuli are all around us in our daily lives – and can result in physical pain or emotional trauma.
Pain is inevitable. We have the power to choose our response.
