Aww. Good list. Good thinking.
You, know, RrW is you!! Very thankful for my fabulous friend Robin!!
I’m liking number 16 😉
Seriously! I am on this fibro support group online and it turns out everyone in the group has this “I must work my butt off all the time…” conditioning from family and culture. It’s so funny that the way to get better is to not try. It might be true…what do you think Dawn?
I think that there is something in that, I know that when I finally gave up battling the illness and accepted it and its limitations and fluctuating, unpredictable nature things became a little easier for me to cope with. Rest is the only way the body will heal, so I believe, for me at least, that including adequate rest and listening to my body (as best I can) is the way forward. In essence, yes, it is better not to push beyond the boundaries.
Your list helped me to expand my gratitude, and of course that includes you, my friend. I am so grateful to be understood, seen, and heard.
