I hope that you all woke up in a good spirit today.
I woke up this morning with a new state of mind about myself. Knowing what you have to do for yourself is only one small part of the battle, maybe even the easiest part. Actually putting it into action is tough for some.
“Knowing what you have to do for yourself is only half the battle.”
This morning I got up and I moved. Not just that slow pace to the bathroom move. I really got up and moved. I had to shake it off so to speak. I did squats, high knees and some arm exercises. I don’t have any weights so I used a bottle of Gain detergent, that is 100 oz. roughly about 7lbs. Even though I’ve done a little bit here and there, I’ve done exercises that have left me in serious pain. Today I woke up different and today these exercises meant more to me and I felt I was doing it right this morning. I am proud of myself.
I am sorry for anyone who woke up this morning in any pain or having negative thoughts or you are having trouble. If anyone is going to a flare, I know how it is. I just want to share my moment of feeling good with you all in hopes that it inspires someone else.
I will enjoy this day and not focus on tomorrow until it is here. I can’t promise myself because it would only turn into a lie (maybe) I never know how or if I will wake the next day, so I will set a small goal.
In hopes that I reach this goal every day. That goal is to have a positive thought(s) when I wake up.
It won’t be easy but I will continue to try.
“Wake up with a positive thought every morning.”
I hope you all are having a good day. Good days are very few for most of us. When you do have one you have to learn not to do much, just take that good feeling and enjoy the peace of it. Live in that pain-free day and ride it out. Do not over do it.
It’s crazy how relaxed I feel right now. My mind even feels at peace. I don’t want to think about anything, afraid of ruining that feeling.
Didn’t fall asleep until around 4am, woke up around 2pm. Had a cup of coffee and I began cleaning up my bedroom, I can now see the floor from all the clothes being picked up. I can now walk freely on a flat surface.
Now at 5:30pm I don’t want to do anything, I don’t want to move. I have a sore spot on my back which is the only thing bothering me today.
It’s cloudy, rainy and cold outside and I just want to Netflix until 8pm when it’s time for a basketball game I want to watch.
Today is a good day.
Always remember that Jesus himself went through pain. He had been where you are and been through more pain than you could endure, ten times over. You Your never alone in this journey. I know it’s not easy and you want to give up but you must keep going. As long as you are waken up or maybe you never went to sleep, as long as you still have breath inside you; you must keep going. Your pain is not the end, your pain is an eye opener.
Like Paul some of us are reminded every day that we are in constant pain and some of us can find the positive outlook on it, while others see it has a curse/touture.
Mentally you must be strong, even when your body is weak, fore when the body is weak so can it trigger negative thoughts that cause you to fall right into all the discomforts in life.
You must Find Your Comfort in the pain. Don’t just live with it and accept it, you must continue to find the root of it all. Is your pain as is the thorn in Paul? Are you accepting it to better yourself? Or have you accepted that your life was meant to be full of pain?
Better yourself, your life, the smallest to the largest of things that need working on. This is the time to face truths that you’ve been lying to yourself about for years. What is God trying to change about you? Or in you/your life?
Find Your Comfort… if it’s in your pajamas, then you proudly wear them and don’t feel guilty or worry about what others think. You have to think of yourself now. You are the one enduring the pain, not them. True friends and family that truly love you, will be right by your side and won’t judge you. Anyone who looks down on you, is not for you. Keep people around that allow you to feel peace, happiness and tranquility.
Most importantly have people around you that motivate you to be a better you. Remember that you won’t see a difference unless you try. The pain may be there always, so if you’re going to hurt anyways, you might as well do what you enjoy. At least then you have a reason to why you’re in pain. Find Your Comfort.

Be Kind To You
The Daily Devotional by Joyce Meyer I read this morning; it reminded me that I need to pay attention to how I speak and think about myself. It’s not always the ones around you bringing you down; sometimes it’s just you.
Do you remember that childhood saying? “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”
True enough, but words can hurt and they cut deep; depending on who’s mouth they’re coming out of.
Minister to Yourself

Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.
—Proverbs 18:21 The Message
Our thoughts affect our words, and our words affect our lives— words have power, and they directly affect our emotions. Words fuel good moods or bad moods; in fact, they fuel our attitudes and have a huge impact on our lives and our relationships.
Choose to speak life-giving words.
Today I actually feel alright, surprisingly enough seems like the calm before the storm; like my body is giving me a little break before the week of my menstrual cycle really begins.
REMEMBER TO BE KIND TOO YOURSELF!

Stay Focus on Goals
I got the message about staying focus from many different ways today. A letter from a friend reminding me how good I was doing and how I have lost focus and forgetting about the goals I ha set for myself. Then I read a daily devotional message about God being with you all the way, he will never leave your side. He will help you stay grounded and focused on the goal at hand, as long as you stay focused on him. Then the last message I got was from a daily bible verse email, that spoke about receiving Gods word, and how. It could be through someone or something. So clearly I got my message today, that I need not give up and I need to keep putting my best foot forward, even if that foot may be in pain, I must push through.
Sad part about getting this message, was then being able to apply it, that was tough. I was in a very weird mood today and I just didn’t want to be happy. I was angry and frustrated, the bed was my friend today. I knew want I needed to do, but didn’t have the energy or motivation to do so. I had the chance to go to a birthday party, but changed my mind. After walking around and when my weight fell on it the wrong way, it would hurt so bad. Along with my knee and leg itself, I just wanted to try and relax. I did talk to my mom today, and had some good laughs, so that made me feel a bit better. I wanted to be alone and alone I was today. But I have my message and I will apply it to tomorrow.
Lord, of all the blessings in life, the greatest one I ask You for is that You will be with me. I can do without a lot of things, but not without You. Amen.
