Let Whatever You Do Today Be Enough

Today I’m going to take a bit of my own advice, post some of my past little paintings (some from last week and some from this week), and let that be enough. I’m afraid the holidays have caught up with me. More often than not I will get warning signs of a flare coming on but yesterday, as my illness sometimes does, it just hit me, hard. There are times when our energy reserves allow wiggle room and we know when to stop, but there are other times when we are in our reserves and we go from exhaustion to body malfunction instantly, and I’m not going to sugar coat it, it’s scary. These blogs absolutely wipe me out so today I’m going to show myself a little self compassion and as I always tell my son KISS (keep it simple sweetheart).

Happy New Year wishes going out to you and yours. Hoping this year brings kindness to everyone, and for those of us with MECFS, and all other mysterious illnesses, hoping we get closer to a treatment and/or a cure. We did it ya’ll, we made it through 2017. Time to take a deep breath, know you did your best, and when you’re feeling up to it keep putting one foot squarely in front of the other, even if that’s purely metaphorical.

Lastly I’ll leave you with this, whether you are gloriously healthy or awfully ill, at the end of each day, let what you did be enough. Tomorrow is another day, make a list, and press pause. Allow yourself to rest peacefully, let the list handle the worries of tomorrow.

Thank you for following along and stopping by to have a read.  I appreciate you!

  1. Perfectly said, I think this is something I should use as a daily reminder too. I also like the KISS thing – “sweetheart” is so much better than “stupid’! Wishing you all the very best for a healthy, happy New Year 🙂

    So sorry to hear you’ve been feeling rubbish. The holidays are exhausting aren’t they. It is scary when you have those crashes that just come on with no warning. You have no choice but just to rest it out and hope it passes soon. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you. Perfect advice by the way! 😊

        I’m so sorry to hear that. It’s horrid when it hits you like that. It totally wipes you out and you just feel rotten. Sending lots of healing vibes over and yes, remember it will pass xx

    Happy New Year! Someone recently told me that if someone sets four goals in one day, and accomplishes three of them, it’s better for them to focus on what they did accomplish than what they didn’t. Yes, what we do each day is enough.
