Hello, wonderful people! When living with chronic illnesses, it is so easy to begin seeing life as, “a glass have empty”, as opposed to seeing it as half full.
We can speak all day long on everything that is going wrong with our bodies. Pain, discomfort, insomnia, surgeries, nausea, and so on!😩And although I do not want to fall into the toxic positivity trap, I do want to acknowledge that we actually have positive, wonderful aspects of our lives, that sometimes become suffocated by the symptoms of our poor health!
But guess what?!🤗We can CHOOSE our focus. I choose to put my energy into moving in a forward momentum, even though I will be having colon surgery for a pre-cancerous polyp. The shock and upset hit me hard, so I cried, grieved, and cancelled the two trips that I had already paid for, one of which was my dear grandmother’s 99th birthday party!😔But I receive comfort, knowing that I am loved by my friends and family, and I have a doctor who is so skilled and LOVED personally, by so many people!
🌼So what are some beautiful aspects about your life, and what makes your glass half full?🥰
