Life Happened...now what? A top ten list of choices ©

Ever wake up one day
and say...

Life Happened...
Now what?

I wake up with that thought

Everyday I have a choice.

Here is a top ten choices for someone with
Chronic Illness/Pain.

1. Action                                   or         inaction
2. Give life your all                   or         give up
3. Find joy in the little things    or          be on the pity pot
4. Communicate with friends    or          isolate
5. Re-create yourself                 or          focus on all the things you can't do anymore
6. Enjoy the simplicities in life  or         keep up with our old pace and break our bodies down
7. Exercise ~ every day             or         let your body stiffen up faster ~ advance your disease
8. Rest ~ listen to your body     or         fall at the end of the day, exhausted ~ depleted
9. Live in faith                          or          live in fear of your future
10. Embrace every single day   or         wish you had someone else's life.

My friends, I truly believe that ALL of us, whether dealing with RA or losing jobs, going through
divorces, life changes....we face these choices.   Each day is a decision, isn't it?

Make the right choice, today, for you.

In my future blogs...I am going to take each one, one by one...just like I would if I were coaching someone.   :)

Healing hugs,
