Pain Awareness Month

For Pain Awareness Month, I wanted to share my thoughts. Pain may not be our choice, but how we deal with the pain in our life and how we respond to our pain is our choice. Attitude matters.

Leaving the Pain Behind

I am not my pain. I choose not to let it define me.

Choose wisely, my friends.

Cheers!

Leaving the Pain Behind

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.

Conversation = Food for the Soul

via Daily Prompt: Conversation

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…

Converse more.
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.
Express gratitude.
Demonstrate love.
Converse.
Listen.
Talk.

Be.

And now if you’ll excuse me, I am going to make a phone call….and enjoy the conversation.

Cheers!

I’m not a Poet

On days when it hurts to move or get out of bed, this little diddy often runs through my head:

I may not be a poet, but a Fibrowarrior I am, and will always be. 🙂
