Our hope for our life book must be centered on living our lives and adding more chapters so we can look back on a life well-lived despite the challenges and obstacles we have faced. No one ever guaranteed an easy life path. So let's get back in the game and write some more life chapters. What is it that you hope for your life? Whatever that hope is, don't let your current limitations rob you of your opportunities. There are ways to make it happen. You may have to modify your dreams, but don't give them up. We are sometimes the very people that place obstacles in our own way, which is self sabbotage. When you think you can't accomplish something ask yourself if it is you that stands in your own way. It's surprising how often we do set up road blocks for ourselves.
So instead of putting all our hope on waiting for a cure, let's refocus our hope on the present and the future. Let's place our hope on our lives and not on an illness that seeks our complete attention and tries to put our lives on hold while we live in the past in a life chapter that was written so many years ago. Our experience includes this illness and is a chapter in our lives that should not be denied. We can't afford to wait for the fibromyalgia cure to live our dreams and write our next chapter. What is your next chapter? Send me your thoughts about your next life chapter so I can write about you in my blog. If you send a picture I will include that in my blog too. Blessings to you as you write all the chapters of your life that are yet to be!
