Stress the positive #1

Saturday, March 13, 2010

Okay, a new challenge to pay more attention to the positive. I'm going to try to focus on at least one positive thing every day. Perfect timing since the negative has been overwhelming me recently. There are so many positives in my life that I don't know why the negative seems to have the upper hand so often....
In any case, here we go:
1. The obvious one---Bell's palsy has been a hidden blessing since it has taught me how many friends I have, shown me how much support there really is around me, and given me a new appreciation for both my own health and the strength of others who are struggling with serious and chronic illness. Thank you, Bell's palsy virus! I could have lived without you, but you've given me genuine insight and real knowledge.
p.s. No "cardio" yesterday, but I did do ten minutes today so Woo Hoo! Another positive!

    There are a lot of days when I can't figure any positive for having generalized arthritis and fibromyalgia and 4 surgeries (so far) on hands and knee. I do have empathy for all those older people who can't move very fast. (I once had a woman come up behind me at the grocery store trying to get around me and yelled "Get out of the way!!!) I actually can kind of laugh about that one NOW but it was about 15 years ago and I still wonder what her problem was...type A personality?
