I struggle with this...no doubt! I'm sure we all do, even though we are really good at acting like we have it all together! Who are we kidding...I'll be the first to admit...I don't!
I struggle with my health...every day is a challenge to get through...so many things to do and not enough time and I've had to learn things can wait...even though I've always been the impatient type! I have to listen to my body and along with that comes... what ...CRITICISM...yep... you guessed it!
Those that don't see your inability, attack you like you are just fine; when inside your struggling to speak, walk, move, stand, eat, heck even breathe! I encourage you to fight for what you can do...and rest for when you can't.....take the punches....they aren't in your shoes...only you are!
A few punches will just make us stronger... don't let it affect you...well at least try! I can't say that the words of another don't hurt because they do! Sometimes more than people realize...
What I'm saying is your not alone....we are all surrounded by something challenging and we all have to come together to find a way to cope...so I'm here to say it...you're not alone...I see your struggle and it's ok, progress is your perfection!
I've always been the go-getter type, give me a task and I'm all over it!! This past year has been a true challenge....I can't say what I'm battling cause doctors don't even know for sure...but I know I've developed anxiety as this progresses and takes over my body.. I worry every night when I fall asleep will I wake up! Who will fill my shoes when I no longer can fulfill my duties as a daughter, a sister, a mother, a friend, a business owner...
So I fight, I fight to beat whatever it is consuming me...I don't fight for just myself, I fight for my family, my children, and those who struggle just like me. I defend myself when I know I can't, I step up when I can and I sit down when I can no longer stand! I pray...I pray for answers for everyone and myself, those battling the known & the unknown.
So today I pray for you, I pray for you to find peace, comfort, and strength to keep pushing, pushing for progress, and not perfection!
