The reality of fibromyalgia is that you just don’t know when the symptoms will subside.
Pain is exhausting. It can take over your thoughts and be all-consuming. Those with a chronic illness know this all too well, coping with the often debilitating pain, while trying to carry on with their lives.
There’s a coffee shop in my little town called “Conversations Coffee” that is a friendly little place to get something to drink and catch up with friends. In this modern age of electronic communications, I sometimes think the art of conversation is dying. So on this first day of the new year, I think we should all resolve to…
Openly and frequently, with friends and family,
Near and far.
Grab a cup of coffee with a friend,
Just to catch up.
Call a family member you haven’t talked to in awhile.
“Conversation is food for the soul.” ~ Proverbs
Conversation fuels the brain and feeds the soul.
It keeps us connected and grounded.
It helps us learn and grow.
So say hello. Reminisce.
Share a cry. Tell a joke.
Exchange ideas. Give feedback.
And now if you’ll excuse me, I am going to make a phone call….and enjoy the conversation.
