Good hello, friends! Happy Friday and welcome to a new series called Fibro Fridays!! I really wanted one day of the week where I can talk about chronic illness and so here we are! I will covering a wide range of topics that effect or relate to chronic illness, some times book related too, sometimes not.
Today, I want to talk about motivation. Being motivated and work through my chronic pain has been one of the hardest things that I am still learning. How does one balance rest and motivation to betterment? Should I push through the pain? Yes, how else am I going to live let alone reach my goals? Should I push through my bad days? I don’t think so. Sure, there’s been quite a few bad days in the last couple months so I have had to really pick my battles. Yet, I’ve been able to be consistent with my blog and my Instagram posting during this rough time. Additionally, I have had small successes at work and consistently too.
There are definitely times where I feel like I’m not doing enough be that at my job, being part of the book community, or reading. But I try to remind myself that I am doing my best. I also have to remind myself that there’s a lot for me to be proud of. I don’t need to be always working on something. It’s okay to give myself permission to rest; I deserve it.
For first time in my life, even before fibro, I’m setting goals for myself that are short term and long term. I even took the time to write them down, although I would like to type it up and print it so I can nicely hang it up some where I will see it daily.
As always, thanks for reading!
