Being Real

Hello Everyone,

Today I would like to share my thoughts on life and the many things we experience. Being real is one of the most important, yet difficult, things to do at certain times in our lives.

When I was first diagnosed, I felt relief that it wasn't all in my head. The thought of knowing and becoming aware of what was happening to me mentally and physically was somewhat comforting. I was feeling more confident that my illness was simply an experience or some type of process my body had to experience. The process of experiencing a variety of symptoms such as fatigue and pain without loosing hope and faith in God. The experience opens up your mind and heart.

It has been a way of discovering my inner thoughts and emotions. What I see and what happens and how I feel emotionally can be controlled by my inner thoughts. I know I have the power to give, share, be kind, compassionate, provide, love, and protect myself, family, and friends emotionally. It is a choice. We are not perfect, but we have the power to be real and honest.

Things happen that don't make sense, but does that mean we loose hope and faith in God? Ourselves? Our loved ones? No. Our experiences make us stronger and hopefully guide us to a better place emotionally. The key is to remain real and honest. I believe the key to experiencing the best of life is a matter of perception.

Accept your journey in life, even if you don't understand how or why. You do not have to be religious to have faith. Who we are and what we feel comes from the heart and our heart confirms what is true. Be real to yourself.

One last note, blame no one for anything, forgive everyone and everything. Meanwhile, what can you do with your pain? This is what I do: Every moment I breathe, I give my breath to God, and with this I feel an open heart. This is my opportunity to find out what is truly important in life and allow the trivial to pass understanding my pain is no different or stronger than other individuals dealing with a chronic illness. Sometimes I get lost in a pool of pity however, God stands by to listen and eventually leads or guides me towards rethinking about my circumstances , then I open up my heart and eyes responding in a different way. As I recognize my weaknesses I change my attitude and try to remain real to myself.

What about you? Want to share your thoughts?

I hope and pray you are experiencing a day without fatigue or pain.
