I decided that my body is not making the rules this year! I’m creating a list of things I can do even on those days where I can’t even get out of bed.
I’ve spent the last 4 days, using my brain since my body is being a bitch. I refuse to just exist. I’m going to suck every ounce of joy out of this life! I’ll use my brain when my body fails me. I’m still focused & committed to having an amazing year.
Leave it to my body to put me in my place. The first 5 days of this new year my body is in full flare. I’m dealing with intense pain & my BP dropping with zero warning. My body is directing every choice for me right now. It’s infuriating. But I’m standing my ground and looking to my list!
I’ve practiced my ukulele, a new hobby I’m trying to learn, worked on my writing, reached out to family & friends, worked on a number of projects, made headway on some future plans, & a number of other activities where I can use my brain & not my body. It’s actually been quite a productive few days! Was it easy, absolutely not. But I did it!!
I was talking with a friend who also lives with chronic illness & I told her this year, despite our bodies, we will use our brains to conquer the world!
I’d love to hear some things others do when their body says no, but their brain is ready & willing to get to work!
