Lately I’ve been so caught up in things going on and worrying about stuff that I’ve forgotten to see the positive and humorous side of life.
Yesterday I discovered something that really upset me so instantly I texted my sister that I was pissed off (excuse my language). Well what she received was that I was kissed off. This morning I was texting my husband telling him something was ok as we will be together for 4 days. What he received was we will be together for 4 doors. Don’t you just love the autocorrect feature?
When heading out to the gym, I fill a water bottle with ice and water. Every time I do this, water winds up all over the bottle, the fridge, the floor and me. This happens 3-4 times per week. You would think at some point I’d learn!
I’ve been so worried and focused on my health concerns I’ve forgotten to look at the positives and laugh at myself. Yes, laugh at myself even though I have fibromyalgia. I mean how can you not laugh at “I’m so kissed off!” (You smiled, didn’t you?) Or going to fill a water bottle and laugh at myself because water goes everywhere. You would think I’d learn to pour it in the bottle instead of using the dispenser but I’m too stubborn – yep, that’s the German in me coming out. Then I ask myself when did I quit laughing?
I think it’s been God’s way of telling me he’s got this and I need to not be so serious. I need to enjoy life and the little everyday things that bring a smile to my face. And learn to laugh at myself again cause with fibro I can do some pretty funny things like get a tattoo. (That’s a story for another day.) Every day I get to choose what kind of day I’m going to have. Yes, I have fibro with all the pain and lovely side effects. But I’m going to choose to have a good day every day. It might not be pain free but it’s going to be a good day full of positivity, laughter and love. What about you? What kind of day are you going to choose?
