It is hard to sometimes think positive when my pain is a daily problem. It is easy to get down on myself. I am probably the worst critic over anyone I know who knows me. I shouldn’t be this way; but on those very painful days, when getting out of bed is a task, I fall prey.
I have been thinking of ways to improve this. No, I don’t just sleep when I am in bed too much. My mind races to various things, including how do I make things better. I was watching my favorite show tonight, and she made a comment that hit me like a brick.
She said, ” People complain all the time. You can’t complain, if you have no plan to change things. If you complain constantly, you will always be stuck, right where you are. We don’t give enough thanks for being in the place we are right now.”
The last sentence was the one that got to me. Wow, it really hit home. I pray a lot. I pray for my kids, my family, my health, to lose weight, to watch what I eat. I pray often for the MSA patients on my pages that need to be comforted, and I can’t be there to hold their hand.
The one thing I didn’t think about, and never did; was to pray, Thank you God for letting me have this minute, right now. Time for a change.
