Hi everyone! It feels tremendously weird writing right now as it’s been quite some time. The month of May was such a hectic time for me…it was the end of the school year, I was involved in numerous volunteering efforts, there was my birthday, Mother’s Day, infusion treatments at the hospital, and in the midst of it all, I could not bring myself to delve into the world of blogging. I’m sure other Lupus patients can relate in regard to the ups and downs of having this conditions. There are moments when things are going so well and all you can focus on is seizing the moment, and other times when things are so low when a solace escape is enough.
In my efforts to maintain a healthy lifestyle, I am constantly trying to “be one” with my body and pay attention to any signs that it may be attempting to communicate with me. In the past, I’ve ignored signals and continued living my life however I felt I needed to. This has only caused increased pain, frustration, and anxiety. It would be entirely foolish for me to ignore the old saying, “learn from the mistakes of others”, and continue repeating the cycle of inconsistent consideration of my body’s needs. Lupus patients are constantly at risk of causing increased Lupus activity in their bodies. It’s important to be aware of the signals that your body sends, as well as what you can do when they suddenly arise!
Happy Monday Everyone! Hoping you all had a blessed week! Here is another Motivation Monday, giving you some encouragement and reminding you to count your blessings. Now that I am back at work, it is so difficult keeping up with my posts, but the Motivation Mondays MUST stay consistent! As always, please share some of the awesome things that happened to you this week. Remember, there’s a blessing even in the little things!!!
