Every morning I wake up and feel extremely blessed and have gratitude. However this morning I feel a very strong blessed feeling. I’m so grateful that I’m now able to get up every morning, make my bed, tidy up, make breakfast, go to the toilet, go for a walk, do exercise and many other things.
It wasn’t always this way, years ago when I was very ill, I couldn’t get up out of my bed as I was too dizzy and anxious. I couldn’t sometimes even make it to the toilet without falling into a wall so instead I’d crawl. I couldn’t clean the house that often, I couldn’t cook much, I couldn’t go out for walks, exercise or even sometimes walk across the room without my walking stick.
After years of healing myself, I’m now able to do most of those things. Ok I may not be able to do the school run, go to the cinema, theatre, go on rollercoasters and other triggering activities. BUT I can get up, brush my teeth and get on with my day and live the best life I can within my limitations.
For that, I have immense gratitude. I’m now learning to enjoy life again when for years I didn’t want to even wake up in the mornings. The small things make me smile and happy. When you have chronic illness it opens your eyes, you appreciate people and things around you more. You don’t do things for money you do them cause you care and want to help others.
Us chronic illness warriors have a superpower, we are so strong. People who are suffering from invisible illness right now can’t see that in them, but you are braver and stronger then you think.
I’ve been working on my mindset and inner strength for the last few years. I had to dig very deep to find the strength and courage to fight on. We have to learn to trust our bodies again, have more faith in them. “All that you seek is already within you” 😘🙏
