Expect the unexpected… that should be the motto of our lives. Each day we wake up we never know which part of our body will function, or not. This is always an interesting part of my morning routine… I wake up and lay in bed for a few minutes and sort of have a chat with my body:
“okay feet, what’s going on… crazy nerves or are you going to be cool today?”
“legs and knees, numb this morning? can we stand up? walk?”
“back… oh back, let’s just rest a bit and then stretch out and … we really can do this… right?”
“shoulders… breathe… breathe… release (I always have to remember to let my muscles relax in my shoulders!)”
“neck.. relax.. relax! .. oh I mean …. breaaaathhhheeeee… relaxxxx”
I have had one flare free week and what a blessing that was. I haven’t had a relatively pain free week like that in a very long time. Today is a new day. I will take it for what it is. I have new challenges to face today and I will face them and I will use my tools to manage through the pain and I will fight the flare monster away!
Today is a new day.
Expect the unexpected… and accept, sometimes it’s good and sometimes it’s not so good. Everyday is a new day, which means every day you have a new opportunity to make it a GREAT DAY!
Thanks for stopping by!
