Here I go again, a trip to see my sister and brother in the UK. I am very excited but also know there will be some challenges with my condition along the way.
I have Fibromyalgia and a few things that go with it, this has given me challenges when I have to put pressure on my body that it does not like, but that must not stop me from enjoying life or traveling.
I am NOT MY disease, I have a disease and yes it is my partner in life but it does not control my life completely. Instead, we have an agreement, if I overexert myself, I must allow time to regroup, if I know I am going to overexert myself, I must prepare for it with the right nutrition or and medication so it does not put so much strain on the body.
I will not deny myself the joy of traveling or doing things in life I love, but I will make sure that I am prepared for it and allow that time to heal afterward. We must not let our health challenges become dictators of our lives, the mind of matter along with the spirit, heart, and soul have just as much say and need to be invited to the party and not ignored.
So say yes to things, life is for living, live it, do it, not worrying over can if you should or the what-ifs, etc. Just prepare, listen to your body and with your heart soul and spirit igniting the joy in you, you will be surprised just how much you can do before you have to rest up.
Most of all go and enjoy your self, for that is what life is for, feed the joy, not the pain.
