So this weekend I was able to reflect on many things and reflect I did…Unfortunately I was admitted to the hospital on Saturday. I have battled fibromalaygia for 7 years and often the chronic pain I experience is unbearable! I am always in pain, however some days, I have what is referred to as a flare. My children often push me to go to the ER on my worst days and this weekend I obliged…even though I knew it would not be pretty…My intense pain is always met with a shot…in my hip. Its not fun as you can imagine, but I have pushed through for many years.
This weekend, I felt different…the doctor informed me that I would be staying over night, because my blood pressure was low. Needless to say over night, turned into a weekend and I reflected….Although I often keep my struggles private…I have learned that crosses can not be beared alone and as I sat in the hospital bed…several reminders were dropped into my spirit.
I thought back over my life, my journey, my accomplishments and I was reminded about all I have given and done for others over my time here on earth…its been too much too count. I was reminded that I must take a little more time for me..I was reminded that I was expendable and also informed that I was not getting any younger. Reminded that some things are not that important and that some people are very important!
Reminded that I must not continue to give until I am depleted…My 2015 resolution was once again dicphered and I analyzed it well. I fought through the fog of fibro and will continue to fight…
I was thankful for the family and friends who checked up on me.. the ones who reminded me of all the “reminders” I often forget about,,,grateful for the texts and phone calls.
This post is simply a reminder to each of you that life is simply what you make it…live it and live it well, beacuse you only have one and that “one” is valued by many.
Peace, Love & Empowerment
